x----------------------------------x---------------------------------------------x-------------------------------------x---x Synoptic situation as on evening of 20th March: A technical break up and analysis  of events and probabilities. Since vagaries has many a students and enthusiast followers, this would be a typical case for Met students to follow up (if they wish), for this is how things are forecasted...See Current Weather Page.

Proposal to keep our farmers and related communities updated with the Latest on Weather:

In our country, with its agriculture base, the timely announcement of the Monsoon rains and their proper and (as far as possible) accurate forecast, will surely help our farmers.
Timely information of rains will help them plan their sowing and save them the cost of the seeds.
During Monsoons also, they need proper guidance as regards dry or wet spells, or extreme temperatures. Off seasonal rains or extreme weather warnings would also serve in saving standing crops and prevent loss.

Currently, Vagaries is already conveying and is in touch with the Aurangabad (Mah)region farmers. Cmdr Potey conveys vagaries' local forecast to his contacts in Akola region.

Similarly Ashok Patel's forecast is available to everyone including Saurashtra Farmers on , as well as through local New Papers and through phone to selected persons across many villages of Saurashtra. This person then communicates the weather information to farmers of the village.

Seeing the enthusiasm and eagerness, and having faith in our readers,
Vagaries and Ashok Patel's would like to involve weather enthusiasts in communicating with farmers or their representatives.

Weather enthusiasts/Vagarians interested in passing more detailed forecast, other than our published Weather Forecast, of any other States or sub-divisions to  farmers of those areas, may communicate their intention and views through  e mail to Vagaries or Ashok Patel.

When you need detailed  Weather Forecasts of your region or sub-region, you may contact us and get the same. Warnings and information could be passed on through SMS, E mail or by word of mouth to the concerned farming communities.

Weather volunteers should intimate us for any variations between forecast and reality or sudden local developments in their respective regions or sub-regions.

Before implementing our intention we welcome your suggestions and views.
