Mr. Rajesh will this system affect Sindh ?

Rajesh said...

Tarim Khan: Since it is a depression,and not a low, and the seasonal low over Balochstan has deepened consideably to 986 mb, I have not mentioned the customary fizzling out of the system soon. But, expect a westward movement over Gujarat and Sindh Thursday/Friday..updates will follow

Unknown said...

Thank you.

Nilesh Ladhad said...

so rain has passed through sambalpur

emkay said...

What to look out for is rate of movement, if slow it is certain to gain moisture from inland wetbodies and retain strength. So the good part is that area around nashik may get good precipitation along with Mumbai catchment area.

Rajesh said...

kiran: Yes, i feel so from Wednesday night, till mid day at least...heavy showers.

Lokmat Times ..Page 3..Marathwada and Vidharbh Heavy Rains expected


Nimish Thaker said...

The latest image on the lightning map seems to suggest a rapid WNW movement of BB8. The area East of BB8 seems to be cloud free and hence Bihar, Orrisa, WB, Jharkhand appear to be cloud free.

emkay said...

What is interesting will all the BBs this year is that W-SW quadrant carries the rainbearing clouds & UAC associated with BB. Therefore though we talk of the BB moving in the trough-axis , the rains are being precipitated south-southwest of it.

Rajesh said...

Typical example of what was described by me in our meeting (video on apperant movement of clouds from east) from Mumbai point of view. Happening now !

Nilesh Ladhad said...

when will it rain again in sambalpur. today few light passing drizle gradualy decreasing by evening.

SVT said...

Mumbai might get over 100 mm rain in next 36 hours. After that it could be relatively dry for atleast week or so.

Mumbai SCZ (Airport) July 2013 average temp : 29.2 c /23.8 c ..

Total SW monsoon rainfall till now ( 1 Jun - 31 Jul 2013 ) : 198.6 cms ( +38 cms....+24 % )

Dattaraj said...

Hyderabad received light showers thoughout day today.

sset said...

IMD Chennai region website- all most all regions of TN are showing deficient rain(-ve). Summer like temperatures. Madurai - hottest with unbearable 40 degrees!!!
Places like Pamban,Trichendur,. 1mm of rain since june 01.

2013 SWM must be highest rain recorded in Vidarbha, as places are receiving rain in multiples of 200x or 300x

Also wondering how can separation of AP with Rayalseema as separate state would work? Rayalseema is Indias driest place - can it support capital infrastructure with no water? Till now APs only saving grace was Telangana - water from MAHARASHTRA Krishna/Godavari or rain from Orissa BB depression.

sset said...

Just wondering kind of rains Brahmapuri (vidarbha) is receiving everytime 100x or 200x, now total stands 1500mm since june, with another few spells will it overtake Mumbai??? What makes this hotspot region in 2013 SWM - this is first entry point into MAHA from BAY...

Unknown said...

Rajesh sir, when is the next depression likely to form in the bay (BB'9).Nagpur is being benefited by all the depressions entering in from the bay.

Vinod Desai said...

Rajesh sir,
How is that we all get good rains whenever Low forms..but the places like mahableshwar,matheran,lonavala and other ghat areas like tamini, they continuously get rainfall..everyday that too150 mm or more..

Vinod Desai said...

Rajesh said...

Vinod: Naturally, these are on the windward side, attracting maximum moisture and rising moist winds, condensing on very low dew point and saturation point.

Kiran: Cant commit now, but next low from Bay likely around 8th Aug..
