Posted on Sunday, 10th March:
Heat Waves abate to some extent in the Sub-Continent
After offering the first 40c of this season to the country, the Western coastline of India has finally shown a downward trend in maximum temperatures.
Mumbai along with Rajkot managing the first 40c of the season, have been the hot regions due to the high pressure in the region and the Easterly flow towards a high in the Arabian Sea.
Now, we see a high slowly developing in NW India. initially for the next few days, and then a trough running along the 20N-22N West -East line from Vidharbha thru to the East coast. This will embed a low in the lower regions of the atmosphere around North MP region.
The effects of all this:
Monday, 11th March: Light scattered rains in Kerala. Thundershowers around Kathmandu possible by late afternoon/evening.
Tuesday, 12th March: No meaningful rains in India, but the approaching M-2 brings precipitation into Western Pakistan regions.
Wednesday 13th March: M-2 moves into the plains of Pakistan, and along with the hilly regions, gets precipitation. again, fairly good rains for Islamabad. Some showers in Southern Sindh can translate to rain in Karachi on Wednesday.
Karachi will hover around 31/32c with rain as forecasted for Wednesday.
Hyderabad (Sindh) will get relief from this M-2 system, as the days will be under control within the 35c levels. Monday will be cloudy.
M-2 brings rains/snow to all of Kashmir and HP. Cloudy with some showers for Punjab and West Haryana.
Thursday 14th March: Moderate precipitation in Northern Pakistan.
In India, Kashmir and HP get rain/snow. Light rains for Punjab, N.Rajasthan and Delhi NCR.
Cloudy weather for Vidarbha, with light isolated thundershowers, in East Vid (Nagpur/Chandrapur), and adjoining S. Chattisgarh.(Remember the trough?)
Mumbai Scruz: Monday/Tuesday: Partly cloudy (2 OKTA) with day around 34/35c and the night time lows at 20/21c. Increasing levels in humidity. W/NW winds.

Kolkata: Monday/Tuesday will be sunny and with the day temperature around 34/35c. But Wednesday and Thursday will see some clouds, which will in effect raise the day temperature to 35/36c, and make it more stuffy and uncomfortable, with the lows also showing 23/24c.
