Overnight Rains in Muscat..See report and Pics on Inter Active Page
Posted Thursday Night:

Severe Cyclone Helen, moved slowly WNW, and was centred at 16N and 82.9E. Winds at 55 knts maintaining its status.
Expected to cross Guntur/Krishna Districts of AP coast on Friday afternoon.

Exactly as per our Sunday Night Post, a new Low forms in the Southern Bay on the estimated date, 21st, and BB-19 strikes coast on 22nd ( but as a severe cyclone, not WML as predicted). 
More on BB-19 and details of the new Low in tomorrow's post ( by 3 pm IST).

Thursday was a rainy day in the UAE. Pleasant weather and frequent rains with hails was prevelent in the day.
Al Ain AirPort received 25 mms of rain, and Abu Dhabi got 11 mms. Sharjah measured 7 mms.
Dubai saw a high temperature of 31c on Thursday.

In Oman, Qumaira got heavy rains and hails, recording 39 mms. Muscat too was cloudy with occasional rain, recording a high of 28c.Jabal Shams in the mountains recorded a high of 11.5c.

A Western Disturbance is expected to bring good precipitation to the UAE and Oman from Thursday, 21st.
Dubai will get cool wet weather this weekend, with a cold and rainy day on Friday. 
Showers expected in Muscat also.

Rains for Pakistan:
The WD moves East initially. Northern Pakistan can expect precipitation from this system on Friday and Saturday.
Coastal regions and Sindh can get some showers on Friday and Saturday. Friday will be cool and cloudy in Hyderabad (Sindh) and Sukkar and Nawabshah.

Due to BB-19, I would expect the WD to move NE into Kashmir, and Northern hills of India.

TN is deficient in rain for a very large percent. Requires immediate rains. Current low is anyway out of TN reach, again seems to move away from AP towards Orissa!! which is again bad news for drought hit SE India...
