Last year July end lakes started filling still we had 10 to 20 pc cut. This year no problem water cut even though lakes not filling.

NilaY Wankawala said...

People are more interested in latest updates and precise and accurate weather forecasting rather than postportum work. ..sir your blog and application leads all the way in these parameters..I wish all the best and am sure more and more people will be inclined towards vagaries of weather for the superiority and quality of work that's established by you over years....

Sarvesh said...

Last year we had 10 units of water by July end with water cut but this year we don't have water cut even though we have 3.5 units of water in lakes today

Almost all parts of "Navi Mumbai" received rains in range 100-150mm 24hrs. Mumbai/Navi Mumbai/Thane is blessed with fresh water lakes,mountains,forests... cities receives fresh water in taps 24hrs or sometimes twice a day... people here are used to good quality water... compare this with place like TN / AP / Bangalore - fresh water comes in taps only once a week!!!!.
Still Mumbai complains for any change on lesser side....

anant said...

SSET: can i suggest you a better opponent. ever compared Cherrapunji or Mawsynram or Kolkatta, it typically gets 10-15 to 3 times more rain than Bangalore and Cuddapah. It might give a "novelty" to your analysis.

I have not seen these places, but i suppose they might be green , why dont you track these places against Bangalore/Cuddapah

May be other readers can also suggest more rainier places for you to compare . Please consider the suggestion

El Niño continues to strengthen

The 2015 El Niño continues to develop. Weakened (or reversed) trade winds have resulted in further warming over much of the tropical Pacific Ocean. All key ENSO ocean monitoring areas have been more than 1 °C above average for 10 successive weeks—two weeks longer than the record in 1997. The eastern tropical Pacific is now at or exceeding +2 °C. In the atmosphere, the past week has seen the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) drop to around –20, the lowest values of the event so far.

All international climate models surveyed by the Bureau of Meteorology indicate El Niño is likely to strengthen, and is expected to persist into early 2016. El Niño events typically peak during the late austral spring or early summer, and then weaken in the new year.

El Niño often brings below average winter and spring rainfall over eastern Australia and above-average daytime temperatures over the southern half of the country during the second half of the year. However, other factors, such as temperatures to the north of Australia and in the Indian Ocean, also affect Australia’s climate, meaning El Niño is not the only influence on rainfall and temperature changes. Read more about how El Niño might affect Australia.

The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) is currently neutral. A positive IOD event remains possible, with three of the five international models suggesting a positive IOD is likely during late winter to spring. A positive IOD is typically associated with reduced winter and spring rainfall over parts of southern and central Australia.

@SSET Lol.. No logic you have it seems!!
Again repeating how Konkan comparison can be possible with AP/TN & Int Kar??

Comparison of Int Kar/TN/AP can be possible with Int Maha,Marathwada as they all are rain shadow regions & also Marathwada gets water once in week only in thier taps.

And comparison of Mumbai/Konkan can be possible only with Coastal Karnataka & Kerala

So don't compare always repeatedly same old wrong logic..

Pavan said...

sset or sunset what ever i call you please suggest any model by which we get fresh water in each and every tap of this country people struggle for each drop of water in your village in rayalseema, the region to which you belong to.. kindly think and let me know as even i dont get fresh water in my tap..in pune

Palghar district crosses 1000mm of rain....excess for season


District is famous for Chikoos/Sapotas - India probably world biggest chikoos grow here size of big apple/orange. Remember 10-12 years back we used to get chikoos - rupee a dozen!!!! Fertile soil is ideal for cultivation introduced by Parsis century ago...

Famous places here .... Atomic reactor Tarapur
Beautiful Vagareshwari hot springs -- dense forests/hills surrounded by lakhs of huge Banyan trees is an unforgettable sight. Beauty here is confluence of mangroves,forest,hills....
