Updating blog on situation for next 3/4 days by 9 pm tonite
Posted Update on Sunday Afternoon:
BB-13 Stationary over SW Madhya Pradesh at 1000 mb. Winds rushing towards core created a clouding segmant in the West quadrant. As expected, "Rains effecting West coast from Palghar to Gujarat coast'.See here
Posted Saturday Evening:
BB-13 is weakening and moving West. Associated UAC will bring some heavy rains in Marathwada on Sunday.
Strong winds from the West along the North Maharashtra coast till Gujarat will bring heavy rains on Sunday.
Regions to be affected will be from Palghar to Gujarat border.
Vasai and Northern outer townships can get some sharp showers on Sunday.
Thunder clouds can develop over Eastern outer townships by afternoon and rain in a few spots.
Mumbai will be sunny intervals and partly cloudy, with a moderate passing shower by afternoon/evening in some parts, not amounting to more than 5-7 mms.
Surat will see an overcast Sunday with showers in the day. Some heavy showers can occur in many parts. Rain amount will be around 35-40 mms by Monday morning.
Sharp showers were experienced in many parts of Delhi NCR on Saturday. This, was indeed , a surprise development for me.
Heavy rains with thunder was reported from many regions and Akshardham recorded 48 mms, while Indrapuram saw 34 mms and Pusa 27 mms. SE winds , with moisture, overriding the system and inter acting with NW winds caused the heavy rains. Resultantly the winds have shown great variations in the day. Even the interaction of winds caused an directional wind shear, resulting in thunder and lightning in the Delhi region.
The temperature fell from a day's high of 33c to 23c by evening.
