Hi Rajesh
Please do share your forecast regarding the current wet spell and its aftermath.
The last wet spell was followed by a significant and widespread drop in temperature, what can we expect this time around?

Rajesh said...

Saurabh: The current WD will bring rains in Northern India for another day till Tuesday. Rains/snow will be occuring in Kashmir, HP and Uttarkhand upper reaches. Moderate Rains in Punjab and Haryana and Delhi till Tuesday 17th.So minimum night temperatures will remain risen by 2/3c till Tuesday.
Thereafter, from Wednesday morning, there will be a drop by 3/4c in NW India and Delhi. But the nights will not go to the levels recently seen in North and NW India.
Delhi may see around 6/7c mid week, and Punjab towns around 4/5c. Haryana low temps may be around 5c.

Mumbai may again drop to around 16c by Wed/Thu. Pune may see 10c in that period.

Why there is nothing mentioned of south india.I think that it is a part of India.

Rajesh said...

Narayanan: We mention the weather anywhere when significant or major events or developments are taking place. In the first week of January we had given a report on the NEM performance (of South India). Also had followed up the major very severe cyclone "Vardah". No significant changes are expected in the Southern region weather wise next 4/5 days at least.

Latest ENSO Wrap-Up issued 17 January 2017

The latest ENSO Wrap-Up and Climate Model Summary are now available on the Bureau's website.

Tropical Pacific Ocean remains ENSO-neutral
In the tropical Pacific Ocean, the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) remains neutral. A neutral ENSO period indicates that the tropical Pacific Ocean is not shifting the odds towards a significantly wetter or drier period for Australia. When ENSO is in a neutral phase, weather extremes can and do occur due to the influence of secondary or local factors.

Most indicators of ENSO, such as sea surface temperatures, the 90-day Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) and the trade winds are within the ENSO-neutral range. However, cloudiness near the Date Line continues to show a weak La Niña-like pattern.

All climate models indicate that the Pacific Ocean is likely to remain ENSO-neutral through the southern summer and autumn. Model outlooks that span the autumn period tend to have lower skill than outlooks made at other times of the year, therefore outlooks beyond May should be used with caution.

The Indian Ocean Dipole has little influence on Australian climate during the months from December to April.

For rainfall and temperature outlooks, see our Climate Outlooks (next release due Wednesday 25 January 2017).

Narayanji - except for drought nothing else for southern india. All models failed to predict failure of NEM and SWM for south India. Long wait for 2017 rains......

WD is continuously creating barrier for southern India, infact strong WD itself is becoming a major weather phenomenon like monsoon..

 26th Day Temperatures..Mumbai cooler than Pune,Nasik and Same as Mahabaleshwar
