Within no time figures released....congratulations...being precise accurate and on time almost every time are the virtues of vagaries of weather.

Rajesh sir,I am sorry about my words.....I should have kept in mind....that INDIAN technology for forecasting that accurate is lacking....we do not have enough stuff to predict ..even Imd...IN that case..you are utilising the best of available resources and predicting precise forecasts...your forecast never turns wrong mostly but imd does give totally wrong forecasts....i have noticed this.
Keep it up...step towards perfection
You are the best!!!!!Once again sorry

Extremely informative stats Rajesh Sir... Have never read such interesting stats on monsoon across few many sites that I have visited.

Now sir some predictions about September (short term).

Ishan Vajpeyi said...

Any update regarding the withdrawal of monsoon from NW India, Rajesh Sir?

sanjeev Gokhale said...

sir can you give forecast for Ganapati days in mumbai.You said earlier that rain may increase after 3rd september. awaiting your comments sir. Thanks

sset said...

Among long term forecast for above normal monsoon 2016 - for Southern India 2016 seems to be worst South west monsoon - huge deficit -> huge deviation from actual forecast by almost all models.

Karan Kumbhar said...

Sir are there chances of sustained rainfall this week in Maharashtra ?
It's been close to month of subdued reason activities.

abizer Kachwala said...
