Rajesh sor ,north konkan which includes pen,nagothane and roha also mahad didnt recieve any rains neither on wed ,thur,nor today till afternoon.whats your reply?

rajesh said...

abizer: The rains (other than South Gujrat belt from Vapi to Bharuch) in North Konkan was in the belt North of Mumbai, in fact North of "North Mumbai". South Mumbai got traces only, while Scruz and regions around in Mumbai got showers.
The East of Mumbai region also got showers. Panvel and Badlapur and Dombivali.
Very difficult to pin point exact regions in off season. So, overall area must be mentioned in forecast.
Towards your side, the thunder cell was not developing, though Panvel got some rains.
Your "pocket" got avoided...
Then again, in the interior, Pune and around got showers.

abizer Kachwala said...

It's the happiest moment to note farmers took due precautions based on ur forecasting...I think practical action taken based on forecasting to minimise the losses is the true essence of a successful forecasting. ..sir keep it up helping farmers ....

rajesh said...

Nilay: Yes, i had it published in Lokmat (Aurangabad) on Sunday. Also am in touch with the farmers of Aurangabad district region on phone. Feel it is good if we can be of some help. Our vagaries report goes via Poteyji to Akola farmers also.
