Bangalore gets freedom from seasonal deficit in just single day on our Independence Day !

Happy Independence day and Happy Shri Krishna Janmashtami/Dahi Handi to all Vagarians

Bangalore's actual seasonal rain was less and deficit in mms was more this was the story till yesterday !! As Bangalore recorded 129mm seasonal rain since 01-06-2017 till 14-08-2017 so deficit was standing on -133mm which was below normal from departure ! And almost same was with Bangalore HAL as recorded 116 mms seasonal rain since 01-06-2017 till 14-08-2017 so deficit was standing on -111mm

But Independence Day started with Massive Rains overnight so all the seasonal deficit got wiped out in just span of 3-4hrs Thunderstorm rain !

Bangalore HAL recorded 144 mms & Bangalore city 129 mms rainfall ending 8.30am today on 15-08-2017.

Not only seasonal deficit got wiped out but Bangalore HAL Airport broken it's previous 103 mm highest rainfall record in 24 hrs for Aug month which was set on 12-08-1996 by setting new record of 144 mms in 24hrs today !

Also Blore city August total so far stands at 174mm till today against the normal 147mm ! So above of normal Aug avg in first half of month itself.

God's gift on Independence day.

The system that gave rain moved in from south past midnight.
BTW heavy rains in Mysore and Mandya also yesterday. Mandya recorded nearly 144 mm owing to rain last evening.

Rains in Bangalore have surely ended up the deficient in the region .....but we can't pray for the dreaded floods like of Gujarat to happen in Bangalore ....that can only be thought by destructive minds

Unusually hot Delhi along with humidity-Feel good around 47 yesterday. Temp can cross 40 by Thursday.

ANOOP RAWAT said...

Yes,long wait for rains continue in Delhi.Days are hot and humid.DELHI began monsoon with bang but since beginning of july not much rainfall.ALL india rainfall may enter below normal.

Shivkumar Mogal said...

Sir, any chances of rain in Nashik?

sset said...

Abizer - I never meant that way. Meaning is KAR required heavy rains -Cauvery is dry. This is 1st heavy spell for BANG -city due to lack of infrastructure got into mess- but water is essential for atleast borewells to get recharged. Just 1 spell - city requires more rain - same with interiors for poor farmers. I meant how GUJ would have faced massive 3 digit rains every day?

3 days of super rain over central and south bangalore. My place of extreme south has got:
87 mm, 22 mm and 9 mm. So 119 mm.
For the year Gottigere is at 590 mm.
The normal till Aug31 is 510 mm. So almost 15% excess.
BTM LAYOUT is at 640 mm. Bilekehalli at 690 mm.

Whereas there are many areas in North bangalore at 400 mm to 430 mm.

Very critical situation in Marathwada region (Maharashtra) now. Very less rain in last 2 months. Not much relief from upcoming low. Because most of crops already damaged. 34 farmers committed suicide in last 7 days. Till this year 580 farmers committed suicide in marathwada 😔. Now people starts migrating to nearest cities for work. 2500 families of Paithan taluka (Aurangabad) already migrated.

With hardly 2 weeks left for the SW Monsoon to end in NW India, the weather's become unbearable with increasing temperatures and fluctuations in the moisture content over the region. Rajesh Sir, will at least the withdrawal be on time in NW India this year, or is the trend of late September rains gonna halt its progress? What are your estimates regarding that
