I read and Hear: " Yesterday's Delhi NCR storm has travelled to Kolkata"...
Actually it cannot be the "same" storm tracking so many kilometres...it would naturally dissipate and get "drained" out. 
A trough , which was expected, has formed from West UP to Bangladesh,something like a Monsoon trough (though not a monsoon trough). I was expecting this trough to form and precipitate on Sunday in W. Bengal. The moisture inflow from the Bay has enriched it faster, by a day. 
So, you will see my Saturday forecast occurred on Friday night, and Sunday forecast seems to be happening on Saturday.


Moen Jo Daro ( Pakistan)  the first Place to touch 50.0c on 29th May 2014 this season !!

Friday ( 30th May) Thunder Storm in Delhi NCR:




A violent thunder storm broke loose in the Northern and Eastern and parts of Southern NCR on friday evening.
Result of sudden convection, and vertical "conical" rise of the created funnel effect, the cloud heads and tops rising suddenly to 15 kms from ground level. Immidiete creation of a downdraft brought very gusty winds, topping at 56 kmph..( some reports say of winds in excess of 100 kmph).
Cumulonimbus summits lacked sharp outlines, and did not form an anvil. Low clouds formed near ground at 600 mts.

The downdraft resulted in hails and sharp variable gusts.Due to this, the temperature dropped from 44c to 26c in a short duration of time.Though very heavy rains were limited to a restricted area, damage from winds is much more....

Was this WD or Local effect ?

lOCAL Effect would be the maximum
Catalyst for this weather event ,

Delhi saw back to back days of 45 C
max temps //

and the lifting force of the system was so high , as because , heat in the area was so high ..

Abhijit said...

I personally would go with combination of both ! WD brought in moisture flow and local conditions help to grow in severe formation..

rajesh said...

Possibly more of a local effect. The Local pressure dropped to 997mb, and climbed back to 1000 mb. The sharp drop due to heat created a funnel effect and the result was seen..

Some deaths are reported in delhi due to falling trees ,hoarding . Safdarjung recorded max speed of 92 km/h

RK Chaudhary said...

i also think local effect but WD also played some role...it brought very severe storm to Greater Noida...severe winds, heavy rains and midnight darkness at 5pm

Good monsoon cloud cover has started to build in the Mid-Arabian sea, approaching the kerela coast.promissing good flow of moisture along the west coast and the western Ghat's

When Mumbai will get some rains? Mumbai city has not got even a light rains in May? Eagerly waiting for Rains..?!?

Hrishikesh said...

Hopefully Mumbai will get pre monsoon showers from 2nd or 3rd June as forecasted Mumbai is very dry till now it has rained almost everywhere near it it has rained towards north in guj and raj towards east in Pune nasik and towards south in Karnataka and goa but no rain in Mumbai

sam khan said...

I feel there is no need to be anxious about Mumbai not getting any rain in the month of May . as we all know that Mumbai receives maximum rains from '15 June onward's till August 15th'then all these cities which are receiving rains.The west coast will have good monsoon in June and July. so wait patiently, as far as pre monsoon is concerned rajesh sir has already mentioned earlier that the rains will gain strength after 7 th June onwards, so wait patiently.
