Next Low in Bay: BB-4, can form off the A.P.coast around 22nd July.

Along with Himalayan West Bengal, I would estimate heavy showers in Bhutan and Eastern Nepal and Kathmandu.

Expect heavy thunder showers in Kathmandu on 19th and 20th. Maybe cumulative more than 100 mms in 2 days. Local mountain regions will get heavy rains also.
Heavy rains along Delhi/West UP region on Thursday 21st.

As we have a weak off shore trough along the West coast of India, showers ranging from 20-60 mms would continue in most towns of Konkan and Coastal Karnataka.

Strong Gusty SW winds in Saurashtra and SE Sindh (Pakistan).

Vagaries is 10 years Old....I personally convey my sincere gratitude and thanks for all the good wishes and support from Vagaries' readers.
Ten Years of Weather Analyses, Weather Reporting, Weather Interaction and of course, Weather Forecasting.
Over these years, we have added a few co-authors and tried to keep our format simple. We have maintained our reliability, genuine frankness and stating facts and reports, to the point.

It had been my aim 10 years ago, to create a suitable platform and interaction forum for the hitherto dis organised Weather Lovers. I feel I have achieved this today ! 
Vagaries has become a good platform for Weather Enthusiasts and brought together Weather " freaks" from all over the India-Pakistan Region, and has become a good source of information sharing.
  
Now, after 50 years of experience in Meteorology (and of course with the help of the internet and various weather sites), I feel I have been able to get a stable and a fairly firm grip on the subject. 

Vagaries has also been forecasting and giving weather estimates over the years. I know, that there have been some sections who have not been too happy with the resulting forecast outcome. But, then weather forecasting , specially in the Sub Continent, has never been easy. Sometimes, I may not have agreed with the International Weather Models. I may even have been totally upstream and my views may have even opposite of what the international forecasts may say. But then...that's what I see it as! 
I may be having certain drawbacks, but I do appreciate the support and encouragement I receive from my readers. Believe me, it is your comments and feedback that has kept me going.

Vagaries has many loyal and regular followers in the Sub Continent since the last many years. 
I propose to make certain minor changes in the blog.
My regular readers, if you have any suggestions, please put them up. I am open to any suitable and practical change in style of writing, presentation of write up of article, more/less of details or any other change. 
Please understand, I may not be able to reply to all, but will surely consider the suggestions.

To Shri Rajesh Kapadia on completing TEN glorious years of Weather reporting...
from Vagaries Of The Weather (Wapp Group).
 Concept by Vagarian Salil Kawli

Congratulations to all Vagarians. From Pune I send my deep appreciation and gratitude to all.
It is a totally joint effort and through many contributions Vagaries had come this far in 10 years. Vagaries is now well known not only in our Sub Continent Region, but has followers and readers from the American Continent and Europe, besides very frequent Middle East Visitors.
As it has become a good platform for Weather Enthusiasts and brought together Weather " freaks" from all over the India-Pakistan Region, it is a good source of information sharing and turned out to be a "friends finder " :-). 

Let us all keep the name of Vagaries as the most reliable and most informative weather site. 
Thanks to all co authors....Rajesh Kapadia.

Cherrapunji at 1798 mm, World No.1 wettest place Mawsynaram at 1860 mm, Kitwade at 1805 mm, Mahabaleshwar, Chinnakallar (king of Tamil Nadu), Gaganbawda, Kuttiyadi, Gavali, Amgaon all failed to make the cut-off. Hulikal which is King of South India is not working and Talacauvery readings not available. Open the image in new tab for higher clarity.






























For Latest Weather Conditions see Current Weather Page and Mumbai Page






12th July 2016:...Good rains in Catchment areas make Mumbai Lakes rise :

Tansa: 837 mms, Vihar:1706 mms,Tulshi 1621 mms.

Total Storage on Tuesday 12th July 586 Mcum ( 40%). Much better than last year this date, which had shown storage at 293 Mcum (20%). In fact, only Middle Vaitarna is lower than what it was last year. All other lakes are better off than 2015 this date.
