In a lighter vein , Maybe, the Eastern and Northern parts of city will get today to compensate yesterday's Southern showers :-)
Posted Friday Night:
SWM withdraws from Rajasthan, Part of Kashmir, Part of Kutch, Punjab and Haryana as per Vagaries..13th September.
And with it the post moonsoon heat !. Bikaner was hottest today in India at 41.7c, Jaisalmer at 40.6c and Bhuj 38.3c. And across the border, Nawabshah was hottest at 41.5c.
But, Northern Pakistan, now being sweeped by an upper air WD, is getting good rains. Lahore 50 mms, Muree 45 mms, Rawalpindi 43 mms.
The WD is expected to move East and enter extreme Northern India hills. By the way, the Northern hills are having above normal night temperatures, and lows like 16c in Srinagar, 8c in Leh and Gulmarg are too high for this time. Even in the HP mountains, Kalpa at 10c and Keylong at 9c are higher than expected. With the coming WD, nights will get cooler in the mountains.
Western Nepal will benefit from this WD. Otherwise, Kathmandu may still see a warm day at 31c, and partly cloudy skies. Another few more days for the SWM to withdraw and bring cooler nights (currently at 19c).
The axis runs thru central India, and the Eastern coast trough remains moderate.
Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, will see Thunder showers in Madhya Maharashtra, Inner Konkan, Marathwada, Interior TN and interior Karnataka.
Regions of Heavy Rainfall: Southern Madhya Maharashtra, that is Solpur region and adjoining N.I. Karnataka.
