In such cases, It is found that there is sharp increase in the convergence flux of kinetic energy and weak adiabatic generation of kinetic energy over the troposphere. The vertically integrated generation of kinetic energy shows destruction in the proximity of the center of low pressure area and generation take place west of it in the intense
The accumulated rains chart for the sub continent for January shows the regions having received more than 200 mms, and the anomaly chart is also clear in its depiction.
