Outlook till Weekend ( For India & Pakistan)...with City forecasts  ...

Posted Wednesday 18th Night 11 pm IST:

Next few days we see dry weather prevailing in the Indian Sub Continent. Day temperatures start heating up, and will tend to range between 37-39c in the pink shaded regions.. 



The heating trend will start from Thursday 19th in Eastern Vidarbh and adjoining regions of Telengana. Initila heating also starts in Parts of North Gujarat and Saurashtra. 

The rains start in Balochistan and parts of Central Sindh (West) on 21st March. Instability is created on the region as lower level Easterlies cause a wind shear due to upper level 
Westerlies.(First mentioned in posting of 12th March on this blog).
On 23rd, we see M-4 moving into North Pakistan. 24th, and it gathers over North Pakistan and moves into Kashmir. And 25th/26th....gathers enough strength to precipitate good 
amounts in North and NW India...and Central Sindh and Rajasthan... more of that later.
M-5 on 29th ...!!

Forecast till Sunday 22nd March.

Mumbai: Almost clear, with some high clouds next few days. Days will be around 36/37c till Sunday. Evening North winds will result in pleasant minimum temperatures till Friday. 

Subsequently, we see the humidity and night temperatures rising marginally.

AP - rayalseema region already nearing 40c

Saurabh Dwivedi said...

Dear SSET
As you mentioned Anantpur was 39 celcius today.
That is just 1 celcius above normal so there is nothing unusual here.
Regards
Saurabh

sset said...

correct saurabh - hence mentioned "nearing". add to this kind of horrible drought over anantapur-rayalseema-cuddapah - series of monsoon failure- god knows what is in store- infact whenever temp exceed 40c over rayalseema - Bangalore heat wave starts - being very close to rayalseema- guess in few days number of people allowed in Tirupathi will be reduced due to water unavailability.

sset said...

somewhere in AP today temperature touched 43c!!! Imagine what will happen during real summer we can +10 - 53c that too with 3-4 years of monsoon failure...

abizer Kachwala said...

rajesh sir,are you expecting rains from 27th -31 st march in maharashtra including konkan and mumbai?

Rajesh Kumar said...

Super Hot in Bangalore.. Summer in full fledged..

sset said...

Rajesh Kumar - Bangalore BBMP/BDA has not planted any tree saplings in last 4 years - resulting in barren desertification of BANG - entire BBMP/BDA is pool of corruption - why not they learn from "NAVI MUMBAI"

sset said...

March 20 - is world sparrow day. Due to loss of native trees - sparrows have totally disappeared from BANGALORE - last seen only 15 years back. Sparrows require native trees like peepal,banyan,jamun,figs,mango,neem - these trees live for 100s of years. Mumbai/NAVI MUMBAI/THANE tops highest among all cities in India for highest number of delightful/chirpy sparrows!!

Rajesh Kumar said...

@SSET : You are correct.. Green coverage is dissipating day by day.. Heavy trees are being destroyed.. But no efforts towards bringing it back.. Other cities are trying to increase their green coverage.. Specially new places like white field and ITPL are deserts

Vinod Desai said...

Even the tree cover in Mumbai is depleting day by day..especially western suburbs.I see trees drying for no reason. and concret jungle all around. Even there are plans of trees to be cut in Aarey jungle.
