Forcast by Rajesh Sir 100% accurate - this week extreme rains over MAHA (top extreme),GUJ - including KUTCH,RAJ.
Pattern is same as last 5 years ...GUJ seems to receive extreme rains with ease just like MAHA. 400mm in 24hrs in Dwaraka yesterday (just like sept 2013 rains). Mumbai july (1600mm) highest rains in 63 years more than july 2006! Abhijit daily figures rains in 200mm-300mm range has become normal pattern!!! Huge change in climate pattern in past 10years.
This apart from Monsoon watch (negative parameters + el-nino) nothing could stop torrents over MAHA/GUJ.
But nonody talks about southern India - extreme rains elsewhere makes southern India drier. Why can't Bay low/UAC make landfall over souther India - why is trajectory always central India + MAMA +GUJ?
Concerns of near desertification over SE India(interiors of KAR,TN,AP..)+ Sri Lanka+ southern Kerala... In fact as we go down south it is becoming drier.. BANG/MYSORE still struggling in 200mm since june, Trivandrum/Hassan only 150mm,many interior places within 80mm since june..Usual arguement wait for NE monsoon no longer holds good - as NE monsoon failed for last 4 years + weak currents produce rains elsewhere like Orissa,GUJ,MAHA but not TN / Rayalseema???? What will be implications for TN if NE monsoon again fails? Myself belong to drierst place in India (Rayalseema-Anantapur - drought for last 5 years) where single drop of rain is so precious in contrast to Navi Mumbai (settled) where it is 24hrs water falls like rain....
