Posted Saturday Night:
The expected Low has formed in the Arabian Sea. Situated off the Kerala coast near the Lakshdweep Islands, it was last located at 12N and 70E..I am showing the wind image here so that readers may understand how the centre is located and identified.
The Low, likely to intensify to some extent, and move along the coast, and by Monday could be located West off Goa. But the major heavy rain will soon start concentrating in the West and SW quadrant.
System likely to get embedded in the upper trough along the 13N line, (due to Shear..see image) and may move Westwards, away from the Indian coast. System may deepen to some extent, and could even dissipate in the seas itself before hitting any coast.
In this scenario, I do not see effect on Pakistan from this system.
SWM advances into Kerala on Friday...
The SWM moves ahead from Monday 9th onwards. Once the Low/depression moves West, we see the West Coast trough gaining strength.
Other Forecasts for the weekend given below...Friday Afternoon Post...
Posted Friday afternoon:
South West Monsoon advancing into Kerala on Friday 6th June. The Monsoon move into Coastal and S.I. Karnataka and Southern TN by Sunday, 8th June.
Mumbai Monsoon around 14th...Saurashtra and Bharuch get their showers after 15th June..
Low pressure likely to form off the Kerala coast on 7th June. It can intensify first to a weel marked low and then depression. As a depression, it can be positioned due West off Goa by the 9th/10th of June. There is a trough in the 700 hpa level along the 19N line. System could get embedded in the trough. If so, then a) it can strengthen and move due West. b) If the rough gets weak by the 9th/10th, then the system will also weaken and move NW and dissipate.
Some models show a) and some b) as a possibility.
Delhi NCR: Hot, with night temperatures rising. heat waves will prevail all over Northern India for the next 10 days. As no WD is in store, few places in Balochistan and Sindh may cross 50-51c, and places in Rajasthan may touch 49c. Few all time records expected to be broken. Night temperatures in Delhi and parts of Rajasthan and North MP expected to be 34/35c soon. Monsoon current will star advancing from Bihar/And Eastern MP towards Delhi after the 20th. Monsoon over Delhi after 26th June.
Mumbai: Its getting unbearable, high humidity and a 3c range between day and night ! Let this weekend pass with a few drizzles making it worst. But come Monday 9th June, or latest Tuesday 10th, Mumbai should see the welcome showers of heavier intensity. Outer townships will be lashed by thunder storms also.
Pune: Continuing with the sure chances of a thunder shower in around Pune vicinity for the next 4/5 days. Regions around Pune can get thunder showers this weekend and into next week till the arrival of the Monsoon, around 14th June.
Aurangabad: Saturday 7th June and Sunday 8th June will be hot, with warm nights in the 26/27c range. And the clouds will make it more stuffy. Monday 9th, Aurangabad could get a thunder shower, which will be enough to cool the night, and bring relief. Tuesday 10th, will see a more widespread and heavy storm in Aurangabad, maybe around 30 mms, and ,cooling down the city to around 22c. Regular Monsoon though is not expected before the 15th of June, though pre monsoon thunder showers next week will bring the required relief from the current 41/42c temperatures.
Bangalore: As the Monsoon advances into Kerala, Bangalore will see wet spell continuing next 2 days. But, as the Low pressure moves, cloudy weather and typical monsoon days after 9th June will mean less quantum and more pleasant days, with average rain amounts.
Chennai: As the South West Monsoon tracks towards the Karnataka coast, a thunder shower likely for Chennai on Sunday, 8th June. Mon 9th /Tuesday 10th /Wednesday 11th will be stuffy and cloudy, with passing showers in parts of Chennai.
Kolkata: After the pleasant cooling spell last week, the city has seen the days around 35/36c. But where is the Monsoon ? The Eastern and NE sector are still searching for the elusive clouds. Though the SWM can move into the NE States by this weekend, we dont see the Bengal area getting covered till 12th. Kolkata may be lucky to get the odd shower on Monday as the SWM current creeps in the NE.
