Seems definite climate change. WD are becoming stronger/longer bringing rains not only for North India but also MAHA. But interior of south exactly opposite - pre - monsoon showers have failed for 2 years, consequtive failures of SWM and almost very weak NEM. This makes interiors of south driest places of India.

Bangalore worst drought for 3 years - now all parks drying up.

Rajesh - any hope this year - or it meets same fate as 2012?????

sset: I dont want to fake expertise, but its impossible at this stage to forecast the quantum and regional distribution of the SWM..at the cost of my knowledge, i can say that these cooling March showers may portend well for the timely arrival of the SWM..but not commiting as yet..we still have half of March left..

Cmdr Potey: Thanks for the tmely feedback from Akola...more rains today it seems..a darker region shown in my map for today. Lets see...i know it may be harmfull to standing Chana crops....

Rajesh sir ,On Saturday evening thunderclouds were clearly visible here in Vasai on the eastern sky. this thing mostly happens during early May . i feel these showers will die down by today evening thus allowing the heat to build up again in Nagpur and surrounding MP. temperature reaching in early 40's Gradually building the heat.as you said we have half of march still with us so things can turn positive to build up the heat.

sam: Yes, thunder clouds were observed from here as well, justifying the rains west east of Mumbai on mainland, as shown in saturday forecast map of vagaries. Now rain area moving east as shown..with chances of showers in parts of Kolkata..
