Posted Monday 18th Night:
The Axis of the Monsoon: Now Northern most in the Himalayan foothills. Likely to remain in this position till 22nd July.
Next Low in Bay: BB-4, can form off the A.P.coast around 22nd July.
Monsoon axis passing from North Pakistan Punjab thru Amritsar, Haryana,Thru U.P and Bihar and thru North West Bengal into the NE States.
Next 2 days,19th and 20th July: Rainfall likely to be persistent along the Monsoon axis.There will be pockets and patches of very heavy rainfall along this "Line".But i would vouch for very heavy showers in Assam and Meghalaya. Huge 3 digit amounts in Cherrapunji and Mawsynram for sure.
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.
Scattered light showers upto 10 mms in few places in Saurashtra. No meaningful increase.
Strong Gusty SW winds in Saurashtra and SE Sindh (Pakistan).
