Heavy Downpour in Chandrapur -Nagpur Region of Vidharbha on Friday
Torrential Rains Lash Chandrapur-Brahmapuri-Nagpur belt: Heavy rains lashed this 150 kms area region on Friday. During the day (Friday), the main City Nagpur saw 128 mms in 12 hrs from 8.30 am-8.30 pm IST. Many regions and parts of the city are seeing flooding and overflowing waters.
Chandrapur received a massive 280 mms in 9 hrs till 5.30 pm IST, mostly from 2- 5.30 pm. Brahmapuri measured 42 mms.
More flood reports will pour in, as the rural areas have got massive rains in the region (will try to put up figures tomorrow).
However, on some preliminary study , it was seen that the heavy rain was a result of a localised towering Cb cloud. Due to a deep trough and UAC in the Bay, with Southern Quadrant pushing moisture inland, the Cb cloud developed after 2.30 pm, and due to supportive convection, favourable Lifted Index and favouring humidity, formed into a massive cloud with >40 reflectivity..
The region had good sunshine till 2-2.30 pm, and allowed the day's maximum to rise to 31c in the mentioned cities. Later, a sudden up lifting due to rising thermals encouraged the formation of a Cb cloud to 14 kms height.
It was reported, that the intensity at Chandrapur was extreme, as almost 240 mms fell in 3 hrs from 2.30 pm IST Friday.
The CB cloud has moved NW, and is seen dissipating as on 11.30 pm IST over Southern MP.
But the conditions will favour in the Western MP region on Saturday, and as forecasted, will bring heavy rains there .
