Hottest in India today was Bhuj at 38.0c. In Pakistan Nawabshah was also hottest at 38.0c.
Sunday (2nd November) Post ...N1 and BB-20....
The new Low in the Bay, BB-20, scheduled to form on 3rd November as mentioned in Vagaries and likely around the same predicted spot..West of The Andaman Islands.
Initially at 1008 mb, BB-20 will deepen very slowly, as it is just South of the Sub Tropical Ridge. The current STR is strong, and runs East-West upto the Arabian Peninsula.
Initially for the next 3 days, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, it could be said that the BB-20 may not go below 1005 mb, hence even the system may not reach above a height upto 700 mb wind levels. Hence may just "loiter" around the Southern Bay for a few days. As the STR gets to dominate the region, we may see BB-20 trying to "scramble" towards the North after Thursday.
Since, the system is far from the coast, we may see a decrease in rainfall in TN . Rains may be scattered in coastal TN and Southern Kerala.

Meanwhile, Chennai will may get a thunder shower on Sunday night or Monday early..decrease after Monday evening.
