Posted Sunday 28th Night:

BB-15 !The sysytem now as a Low at 7.7N and 84E, is around 1006 mb. Seeing the behaviour of the upper level winds, I expect this system to deepen stage wise to depression and track towards the TN coast. BB-15 is then expected, after tracking along the coast, to weaken after Monday and fizzle out around 15N in the Bay.

29th December ; Heavy to Moderate Rainfall is expected : Along the North TN Coast. ( Chennai: Around 40-45 mms 29th Morning- 31st Morning). 
Light rains in Central TN.
30th : Heavy to Moderate Rains in Coastal AP. Moderate Rains in Coastal Odisha, TN and Kerala. Drizzles in Bangalore.

New Year EVE: 31st December: Heavy Rains in Coastal AP/Odisha. Vizag: Around 40 mms 30th morning-1st Morning). Coastal West Bengal gets heavy showers in many parts. Kolkata will gat a wet New Year Eve with showers in the evening. 
Moderate Rains in Interior Odisha and Parts of South Chattisgarh (Raipur: Upto 5 mms)).
Light showers in Aurangabad  , Ahmednagar, Jalna and Western Vidarbha (Akola). (Rains in Central India due to an inland trough ). Drizzles in Bangalore.

Very Cilly Night with around freezing temperatures in Punjab/Haryana, parts of NCR and Rajasthan.  

Mumbai will be pleasant and windy in the evening. Low at Santa Cruz around 16c and 19/20c at Colaba. Partly cloudy next few days after the 1st.
Goa will be partly cloudy with light showers in the night or 1st morning.
Pakistan Northern plains and Sindh to face very cold temperatures from 31st for 2/3 days. Around freezing in Sindh plains and Punjab.

New Year: 1st January 2015: Heavy Rainfall in Coastal West Bengal and adjoining Odisha. Kolkata gets showers in the day. Around 10-15 mms on 31st and 1st

Moderate to light showers and hails in Marathwada (Aurangabad : Around 20 mms in 2 days. Very cold day)), West Vidarbha (Akola), North Maharashtra (Hails) (Pune/ Nasik), Interior Karnataka (Belgaum) ( Bangalore: Showers on 1st around 15 mms in some parts), Hyderabad, Parts of South Gujarat Coast (Surat: Upto 3 mms), Baroda).
Cold Wave in all of Northern regions continue and intensify from 2nd January. Gujarat and Kutch get cold from 1st January.

As we had forecasted, the 200 hpa jet streams have taken the plunge, and dipped Southwards. Though earlier than forecasted by 1/2 days. 
Cold Conditions in NW India and Pak Punjab: The forecasted  freezing conditions prevailed over this region from 28th Morning itself. 

Some Low temperatures as on 28th Morning. List (prepared by Rohit Aroskar):
Panchmarhi dropped to -0.5c


In Pakistan, Islamabad dipped to 0c, Lahore to 2.7c.

Friday, December 26, 2014

Posted Friday Night: BB-15 

A Low has formed in the Southern Bay estimated at around 5.5N and 84.4E. In the 700 hpa trough now, expected to deepen from the current status and embed another Low (BB-15) in the 500 hpa trough by Sunday. 
Upper Jet Streams indicate a core around the TN coast. Meanwhile, in the Pakistan/NW India region, the 200 hpa jet streams are expected to get a Southward dip due to rushing in of Northern cool winds pushing in. 
Resultantly:
1a). The core in the jet streams of the Sub Tropical Ridge situated off the TN Coast will "move" Eastwards. The core, or the clockwise winds at 200 hpa, will circulate clockwise off the TN/AP coast. 
2b). The dipping of the jet streams Southwards, will take a "plunge" upto Sindh/Gujarat regions. 

Hence, due to 1a): The Low, BB-15, will strengthen, but will as a depression at around 998 mb, just miss and skirt along the TN coast and AP coast. Rainfall will be more concentrated in the waters. Chennai and TN coast will get rainfall from 30th. 
BB-15 will skirt the coast and move N/NE along the track.
Odisha can expect showers on Tuesday 30th.

2b): Will bring colder conditions in Northern Pakistan, Sindh, NW India and Rajasthan and Gujarat. All this from 30th December. Around freezing night temperatures from 30th in North Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana. Similarly, very cold temperatures in Pak Punjab and Sindh.

Meanwhile, Saturday and Sunday will see rains in Southern TN . 

For Mumbai, Partly cloudy Saturday. The current pleasant nights will continue, and Weekend will see day around 32c, but a pleasant night with low around 15/16c. 
Pune will have a cool climate with partly cloudy Saturday and day at 26c. Lows around 9c.

Delhi. Days will be foggy, at around 17c. Sunday night will see a drop to 5c.
Chennai, rains increasing from Tuesday 30th.

Author's Views:                                        

The Comment below this Article, the One from Muhammad Waqas from Pakistan, is a must "to read" and is an observation from a weatherman in the true Vagarian Spirit. Such comments will go a long way in strengthening relations across International Borders, as the reader has rightly realised and observed that Weather knows no boundaries. 
I truly appreciate and thank Waqas for the insight and maintaining Vagaries as a bonding between the Global Weathermen.

I will be travelling for the next 12 days. Vagaries will be updated efficiently by the other Authors as Usual.

Posted Monday Night: (1st December)

Since around mid November, the 200 level Sub Tropical Ridge has positioned itself along the West -East line from East Coast of India to Myanmar. With the core off the AP coast. As a result, we have seen the jet streams at that level rotating clockwise  over the Sub Continent region, establishing a "High" and a resultant dry and above normal weather in most areas.
Even at the lower levels at 500 and 700 hpa, the high pressure  has stabilised, and the strong jet streams have prevented the formation of any major WDs.

Dry winds and low low dew points have prevented the formation of the usual fog in the North.

Also as a result, the upper level air temperatures at 850 and 700 levels have been proportionately higher...around 16c at 850 hps...That's high !

Absolute dry weather next few days till Thursday (at least) over the entire Sub Continent region. Do not see major fog forming in the Northern plains soon.

Tuesday 2nd, Wednesday 3rd  and Thursday 4th:

Mumbai:  Few clouds and days around 34/35c. Nights around 19/20c at SCruz. ( Mumbai and Badlapur Pics on Mumbai Page)

Pune: Days around 29c with almost clear skies on Wednesday and Thursday. Tuesday morning low will be 13c, gradually reducing to 11c on Wednesday.

Delhi NCR: Dry and low humidity ( < 45%) will prevent major fogging. Though days will drop slightly to 27c. Nights around 11c. 

Chennai: The city did not receive the expected amount of rains last weekend. Only 2 or 3 mms was measured. Now, as with the rest of the region, weather will be dry.
