South West Monsoon Withdraws further, and may stall for next 3 days now...

Anti Cyclone in the Upper Air at 850 mb level, seen here along with the Monsoon Withdrawal Line...

and the LWD seen, keeping the Western coast and coastline "active" with Thunder showers.



Monsoon out of Delhi NCR and NW India...
But, wind pattern and 200 level jet streams indicate Monsoon still present in Coastal Saurashtra  and Maharashtra

Which means Monsoon winds still prevail in Mumbai..
Day temperatures will ease to 33/34c, and lower in Mumbai from Wednesday, 1st October, as East winds turn Northerly, and LWD becomes effective. An UAC forms off Mumbai , for a day or two, on or around 2nd October..
Mumbai can get the much awaited thunder shower 'any evening" ...its overdue since 2 days..though we see thunder showers every evening last few days in South Konkan and Goa, and along coastal Karnataka...

An afternoon Thunder shower likely in parts of Kolkata next few days...and Delhi NCR, warm with clear skies. 


Mumbai the Hottest in Maharashtra on 29th September....Mumbai Santacruz records its highest ever, hottest ever, September day today 29th , recording 37.0c !!. Previous record was 36.4c on 23rd September in 1972.
Colaba was 34.8c and Vagaries 34.5c today...Colaba IMD record stands at 35.6c on 24th September 1987 and 29th in 2010..

But Mubai was far from the hottest place in Asia...Makkah at 43c. 
Hottest in India today was Varanasi at 38c and Hissar was 37.7c....

Indeed as predicted by vagaries - non stop torrential thunderstorms rains in Navi Mumbai.
Bangalore rain is highly skewed (Since june)- BANG city-680mm, BANG HAL/KIAL-380mm (50% deviation). Had it not been for UAC over Camorin - city would be in deep water crisis
