Posted Friday Night:

Mumbai, with the temperatures dropping on Friday ( 27.2c at Colaba and 28.7c at Santa Cruz), we see the "tempo" for rains building up.

The SW winds we estimated are gearing up. With gaining momentum, we can expect about 20-25 mms rain from Saturday night - Sunday night in Mumbai, about 30 mms in Aurangabad, around 35 mms in Pune and a cool day at Roha (konkan) with about 40-45 mms from Saturday Night to Sunday Night.





Posted Thursday Night (26th):

As mentioned earlier, we see rains approaching Maharashtra and Gujarat this weekend.

As an upper air trough forms, with an embedded Low over central India, precipitation will commence over South Madhya Maharashtra (Pune, Sangli, Kolhapur)  and parts of Marathwada (Beed, Aurangabad)  and Vidharbha (Akola) from Saturday 28th night.
Light showers along Coast of Sindh, more in the East. Karachi can expect showers on Saturday, upto 10 mms.

Rains increasing on Sunday 1st March in Central Konkan. Some stations in Central Konkan and central interior Konkan regions like Roha can get around 15-20 mms.
Rains also medium in Madhya Maharashtra and Marathwada. Hails likely in these regions.Heavy falls likely in Mahableshwar and parts of Pune district.
Could damage the mango in the raw fruit condition. 
Showers also expected in Saurashtra on Saturday evening and Sunday. Rajkot could expect around 5-7 mms. I would also estimate light rains  (around 3-5 mms) in Junagadh.

Mumbai: getting cloudy on Saturday. With SW winds, the chances of rains increase. Saturday will be cloudy, with some rain by evening. Night will see showers or thunder showers.
Sunday will be cloudy, cool and rain in parts of city. Some showers could be light to medium. Day's high around 26c. Crisp cool night. Amount of precipitation could be upto 20 mms.

Pune can also expect showers, from Saturday night. Some heavy on Sunday, amounting to total rains of around 15 mms. Sunday will be cool at around 23c as maximum.
Heavy thunder showers for Nagpur on Sunday afternoon/evening. Maybe around 20-25 mms. Gusty South winds.
Similarly, rains also expected in Akola region from Sunday thru Monday morning. Around 10 mms.
Goa can also get some showers on sunday. Most likely by late afternoon and night. Would expect around 5-10 mms in Goa.


New Delhi: Thunder showers, from Saturday night. Cloudy with gusty Sout-Easterly winds, and some showers on Sunday, Monday also seeing thundershowers. Accumulated rainfall from Saturday night thru Monday evening could be as high as 45-50 mms. Day will drop to 21c on Sunday.





For Aurangabad Friends...Appearing in  Lokmat Times of Friday 27th February

Rains expected this weekend:
As we see the end of February, Auragabad will witness a wet end of the Month. Saturday, 28th night, Aurangabad can get some showers with thunder. Normally, we can get some rains in March, and on 1st March, Sunday, again Aurangabad will have a cloudy and wet day with rains.
Currently, the city is warm showing temperatures around 35c in the day.The first day of March will be cold and cloudy, with the day temperatures not rising over 23/24c, against a normal of 32c. Around 15-20 mms rainfall expected.
Now, this is not going to be good news for the farmers and mango growers. The mango trees are already in the flowering stage and in many cases small fruits are already on the blooms. A little rain even can cause damage. But with the predicted rains, damage cannot be ruled. Even in the fields, ready and harvested cotton and wheat crops will be subject to unseasonale rains. This may result in rotting and spoiling the harvests.
Normally March does get a few rainy days, with the temperatures generally getting warmer.

Mumbai:As we see the day temperatures gradually falling since the last 2 days, we get surer of rains coming this weekend to Mumbai.
The maximum in the Day on Wednesday further fell to 30.2c at Colaba and 31.8c at SantaCruz, now in the "below normal" segment.
After recording 30/31c on Thursday, we see a further fall to 29/30c on Friday and Saturday.

As SW winds set in, this ensures clouds gathering by Saturday 28th evening, humidity increasing, and a possible shower on Saturday evening/night.

Two photographs taken by astronauts—one in daylight and one at night—show the peninsula of southern India.

The night image, taken recently from the International Space Station (ISS), shows with clarity and surprising detail the human geography of cities of different sizes, such as Kochi and Coimbatore, and the highways that connect cities. The almost unpopulated hilly escarpment, known as the southern Ghats, is a dark zone parallel to the coast. A patch of clouds are illuminated by a nearly-full moon.




The daylight panorama was taken by the crew of the Gemini 11 spacecraft and shows coastlines and land surface color, but no details of human geography. This classic view was taken on an early space flight at a similar altitude to that of the ISS. Patterns of bright white cloud cover much of the land surfaces of India and Sri Lanka.

Binary Cyclones...
 

January 2015, two tropical cyclones— Diamondra and Eunice—swirled over the central Indian Ocean. Neither storm was particularly strong, nor were they expected to make landfall or cause significant damage. But their close proximity offered striking views to satellites.
The two storms were about 1,500 kilometers (930 miles) apart on January 28, 2015, when VIIRS imaged them. Eunice, the stronger of the two, was located to the west of Diamondra. Eunice had maximum sustained winds of about 160 kilometers (100 miles) per hour, while Diamondra’s maximum winds topped out at about 100 kilometers (60 miles). Both storms were moving in a southeasterly direction.
 

On January 28, 2015, geostationary satellites maintained by EUMETSAT and the Japanese Meteorological Agency collected the infrared data used to make the composite image at the top of the page. The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on Suomi NPP captured the lower image, another composite.
