Hi Rajesh ji, this is Suyash Karangutkar from Mid-Day newspaper. I wish to have a word with you for potential weather-related stories for our paper. How may I get in touch with you for the same?

Rajesh said...

Suyash: Please give your contact no. or e mail here.

Rajesh said...

Salim: Jabalpur will get some increase in rains on Tuesday and Wednesday from the BB-4 system. But overall, deficient for some time till we see another system.

Rajesh said...

No substantial meaningfull increase in rainfall in Karachi for the next 3/4 days. BB-4 seems to be fizzling away in Central India.

vikas hunk gay said...

Sir what about indore and Ujjain region?

Rajesh said...

I dont see the system BB-4 strengthening much. Not much to be expected in Indore next few days. We have to wait for the next system.
Maybe if the monsoon axis comes a bit south, but if BB-4 goes North, then the axis may shift North.

Issued 17 July 2018

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

El Niño WATCH continues, positive Indian Ocean Dipole may develop

The El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) remains neutral. However, the Bureau's ENSO Outlook is at El Niño WATCH, which means the likelihood of El Niño forming in 2018 is approximately 50%; double the normal chance.

Oceanic ENSO indicators remain neutral, but show a general trend towards El Niño. Sea surface temperatures in the equatorial Pacific are about 0.5 degrees warmer than average. Likewise, sub-surface waters in the eastern tropical Pacific are warmer than average, although these have eased slightly in the past fortnight. Atmospheric indicators remain neutral, but the 30-day Southern Oscillation Index has been negative since the middle of June.

Most international climate models surveyed by the Bureau suggest the tropical Pacific will continue to warm. Five of eight models indicate this warming will reach El Niño levels in the southern hemisphere spring, while a sixth model reaches El Niño levels in December.

During El Niño, rainfall in eastern Australian is typically below average during winter–spring and daytime temperatures are also typically warmer than average for southern Australia. A neutral ENSO phase has little effect on Australian climate.

The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) remains neutral. Three of six climate models suggest a positive IOD may develop, with a fourth model close to meeting thresholds. A positive IOD typically reduces winter–spring rainfall in central and southern Australia, and can exacerbate any El Niño driven rainfall deficiencies.
