Synoptic Weather Chart as on Thursday  17.30 pm IST redrawn on on IMD Sat Image.




There is an UAC, which is moving East (Due to the current seasonal movement and guiding jet streams), The high in the Bay is bringing SE winds in the Peninsula...and the SW Arb Sea winds are being attracted tot the system due to strong CAPE ..the interaction causes massive convection and and radiation causing very high clouds, Thus the storms, being brief and violent with hails. A LWD runs South from this system...
