Saturday 16th April 2016
TOP 10 hot centres of India....First 46 c max temp recorded today for India summer 2016 ..... Bankura breaks its all time record for April which was 45.2c recorded on 15th April 1973

1 Bankura (India) 46.0 °C
2 Sundargarh (India) 46.0 °C
3 Khajuraho (India) 45.6 °C
4 Nowgong (India) 45.5 °C
5 Banda (India) 45.4 °C
6 Jamshedpur (India) 45.1 °C
7 Bhawanipatna (India) 45.0 °C
8 Damoh (India) 45.0 °C
9 Ramgundam (India) 45.0 °C
10 Nizamabad (India) 44.9 °C

Mahableshwar marginalised a bit lower on Saturday, topping 34c. 
I feel, the minimum in Mahableshwar could be near the highest was 22.6c. I dont remember seeing this minimum in this station .

Hyderabad exceeds 44c ! People in AP are cooking on raw floor - that is depth of heat intensity. Only SWM can save entire AP (heat wave started in Feb itself)- last 4-5 years was failure. All schools closed.

Sir a request if you can oblige readers here at vagaries -Heating up of the sub continent factor affects SWM - sir is it heating up of the northern and central india or all regions in India tht has effect on swm ? Sir can you share your views and try to accommodate in any of your write ups @ your ease...


New Delhi high minimum @ 29.8℃.

Bangalore max temp 37.8°C today.. So it's an highest temp in last 10 years or even more years !! But all time record of 38.3c which was recorded in Apr 1931 is still intact as just short by 0.6c..

Karan Kumbhar said...

Respite for pune today as temperature falls to 37.7 C after hovering just above 40 for 2-3 days.

Nilay: Good question....and i expected it from you :-)

The heating, heat waves, in Central India, North Peninsula (Vidharbh/Telengana/Marathwada), in North and North West India will always have impact on Monsoon.High day and night temperatures, in fact are taken as favourable factors for a Low formation in the Sub continent region. The direct effect of seasonal low formation is due to the heating of the land mass.
Hot air rises, and hastens the formation of the sea level low, the seasonal low.In most towns in the Indian region, you will see the sea level pressure gradually decreasing every few days from end April.

Initially as described in Monsoon Watch, the formation of a good seasonal low, with very good gradient, is required for a quick and uniform SWM advance ...Kerala onwards.
That is why, we are following the heat waves and temperatures in the "seasonal Low" point in MW1 and MW 2...the seasonal low depends on the land temperatures.

So, I would say, heating of our India /Pakistan region, is good for initial uniform and timely arrival of SWM. The quantum and amount of rains in later months, depends on other factors and parameters. Theses will be explained in MW 4 and MW 5.

Thanks a lot sir for explaining in such a lucid manner.....I was initially hesitant to ask but then I did ask you.... Appreciate your reply as you had a quick write up on this...Thanks once again...

Abhijit: Yes you are right. We are very close to beating all time high. With 37.8 recorded on 17th april, we are just 0.6 off setting a record. The highs are just a sudden spike, its been consistently hot for a long time now.

Last 1 week avg max temp : 37.17
Since April 1st avg max temp: 36.1
Last 1 month avg max temp:35.7

Its astonishing numbers.

Hope SSET would not jump on my numbers and deliver some hot comments :)

Rajesh Kumar said...

Bangalore has seen many 35+ days this year,..So this year is warmest year for bangalore so far. Breaking the highest temperature is just symbolic. Average temperature has shown sharp increase, As Vijay has also mentioned.

I feel , This is repeat of 2012 with extra heat :)

sset said...

Just wondering "concept of heat build up + pressure gradient" will help only west coast, GUJ, RAJ, Northen India, Central India,Orissa. Much of southern peninsular India, south east coast will continue to remain dry - heat wave started in eastern peninsular India - heat will only take away precious moisture + high rate of evaporation. Curiously RAJ,GUJ,NW places continue to remain cool/no impact from current heat waves.

If today Bangalore would have preserved its heritage trees + lakes it would have been insulated with AP(Rayalseema) heat waves. Today city has become urban heat trap - boiling internally - city has largest number of vehicles in India + largest number of glass buildings.

rajesh said...

sset: Heat waves and hot conditions actually create low pressure...a big Low over the Indian region. No question of taking or sapping moisture, as the real moisture laden winds have not really started (SW winds).
Pressure gradient pulls up SWM aong coast and into the peninsula also.
NW region affected by WDs. But Pakistan sindh is heating up.

Vijay Anand said...

Summer of 2016 would turn into a bench mark for years to come in bangalore.
All that is left is all time high of 38.3 to be breached.

This year as Rajesh Kumar said appears to be repeat of 2012.

Rajesh Kumar said...

Waiting for Monsoon Watch-2

Rajesh Kumar said...

Rajesh Sir, Like Monsoon Watch, Pre Monsoon Watch can be given? At least for LWD rains and Norwester. We have heard many views, but a write up from you will be very interesting and accurate.
Just a humble request :)

Zohair said...

@rajesh sir, does Indian Ocean Dipole really matter during MonSoon? positive IOD means warming of South Indian Ocean but u said its the power house for MonSoon, this region should be cooler.....

Shreyas Dhavale said...

Indian Ocean Dipole(IOD) does matter to a certain extent during SW Monsoon. Positive IOD means warming of the western pole of the Indian Ocean(near Arabian Sea) as compared to the eastern pole(Bay of Bengal). Positive IOD enhances monsoon rains in the Indian subcontinent.
