Does the temperatures in February/March in konkan have an impact on the arrival timing or quantum of monsoon.

From common man eyes
Temperature or no temperatures: last 3 years observations...
(1) Maharashtra has witnessed increase in SWM quantum + durations. Highs are nearly touching 9000mm++
(2) GUJ and RAJ same pattern increase in extreme rains.. GUJ/RAJ 2017 JUL-AUG floods - exceptional persistent low pressure -breaks all records for in-place stay maximum duration!
(3) Karnataka receiving decreasing rains - Augumbe struggles even to reach 6000mm. 10 years back Augumbe was giant. This has deep impact on Cauvery river.
(4) Kerala witnessing droughts earlier not heard being in west coast.
(5) NEM is increasingly becoming weaker raising fear for TN/SAP...
(6) Northern states have good rivers for backup...

Bangalore area (SIK/NWTN/SAP) got record rain last year . Bengalurian never saw such rain.

What about the premonsoon forecast for Maharashtra ?

Rajesh Kumar said...

Sir , what is your view on current LPA near Srilanka coast

sset said...

Rarest formation in month of March... but if it happens will be good for drought water starved TN, KER, KAR. But some models say it will just vanish no strength, others say like Ockhi it may enter MAHA/GUJ !
