Posted 23rd August Thursday Night:
-- Good rainfall likely in North India and NE India. (NE India is deficient now) on this weekend.
-- A fresh low pressure is likely to form in the Northern Bay around 27th August. Hence rainfall increases in Eastern India from 27th.
Resultant, An UAC may materialise over Central India around 27th.

Mumbai: A few heavy showers on Friday. Rain frequency and showers increasing to some extent on Saturday and Sunday. Sunday could see more rains, around 25-35 mms ( more in a couple of spots), maybe with thunder.
New Delhi: Showers on Friday with increase in rainfall and frequent showers on Saturday. Sunday will get occasional showers also.
Kolkata: Chances of occasional showers on Saturday and Sunday. Upto 20 mms/day.

A flood of the Century...See here

Kerala Floods and Heavy Rains August 2018....A Meteorological Explanation

Every year, the south-west monsoon gives heavy to very heavy rainfall over different parts of India spanning over the months from June-September. It has been observed that there is a significant increase in the frequency of very heavy rainfall events over the Indian landmass in the recent decades. In this year, the southwest monsoon seasonal rainfall in spite of being -7.7% below normal till 20 August, there were few episodes of very heavy rainfall in different parts of the country. This caused floods leading to huge loss of livelihood and property. The recent case was of “Kerala floods” which was triggered by very heavy rainfall during the period 14-16th August 2018. From 0300 UTC of 14th August to 0300 UTC of 15th August, the average rainfall recorded in the state of Kerala as a whole was 130 mm. Another 138 mm was recorded in the next 24 hours. This was about 10 times higher than the normal.

It has been seen that anomalous strong westerlies were prevailing at 850 hPa between 5°N - 14°N from 14th August onwards (Fig. 1a-1c). This strong westerly surge was mainly the response of the depression that had formed over the North Bay of Bengal on 14th August. Also, there was anomalous moisture transport from the Arabian Sea towards Kerala during this period (Fig. 1d-1f). This anomalous moisture was seen converging over the region which led to a rise in the specific humidity. This acted as a fuel for anomalous high convection. Further, it has been observed that from 14th August onwards strong divergence at upper levels started building up to the south-west of Kerala. This triggered the low level convergence near Kerala with values reaching up to 20 s-1. This area of strong divergence at upper levels persisted on 15th August and moved close to Kerala, leading to sustained convergence at lower levels over the region (Fig. 2a-2f). From Fig. 2g-2i it is evident that the relative vorticity also increased significantly from 14th August onwards near the Kerala coast with values reaching up to 40*10-6 s-1 on 15th August. This large positive relative vorticity along with strong convergence persisted near the coast of Kerala till the 16th of August providing favorable conditions for enhanced convection thereby leading to anomalous increase in rainfall.
During this period of heavy rain, Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) was in phase 6. This was not conducive for enhanced convection over the North Indian Ocean. This shows that MJO doesn’t seem to have played a role in this episode of heavy rainfall over Kerala.  Thus, initial analysis suggests that this heavy rainfall maybe a response of local thermodynamical conditions along with strong westerly surge that transported large amount of moisture leading to persistent widespread heavy rainfall for 2-3 days.

(d-f) Moisture flux transport (vectors) and moisture flux convergence/divergence (shading). Negative values denote convergence and positive values denote divergence.

Posted 14th August Evening:

After the passage of BB-6, we see BB-7 making progress and heading inland from the Odisha Coast. On 15th August, BB-7 should cross the coast as a Depression and move West/North-West. This track will be aided as the Monsoon Axis is shifting Southwards now.
And that's Good news for Central and Western India. 
Heavy rains in Odisha on 15th will shift Westwards on 17th towards Chattisgarh and East M.P. 
Heavy showers expected in Jabalpur on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th.

By Thursday 18th, we can the system bringing rains to Vidharbh and all of M.P. ...and the  regions of Gujarat (Saurashtra & Gujarat ) will see rains on Friday, or maybe earlier if the system moves fast.

Surat & Bharuch will see increased rains from Thursday, Friday/Saturday measuring 15-25 mms/day.
Valsad will see increasing rainfall from Thursday, going to 50 mms/day on the weekend.


System will be very weak by the time it reaches Sindh as a UAC. Light rains in Karachi and Sindh on Saturday/Sunday. 
BB-8 also expected in 2/3 days...so lets see the complicated developments !

Kerala and Coastal Karnataka will continue to get heavy rains till 17th, and decrease then.

Mumbai SCZ records 11 mm rainfall today. With this long wait of 2000 mm mark get over!
As Seasonal rainfall on 2005 mm till today! 
So as said in yesterday's post it took long 23 days to score 102 mm rainfall! Which is one of slowest 100 mm!

Sunday, August 12, 2018

Mumbai SCZ seasonal rainfall on 1997 mms till 5.30pm today. So more 3 mms away from 2000 mm mark ! 
Also remember SCZ was on 1903 mm on 21 July 2018 itself, so till 21 July situation was of fastest 2000 mm on card as was just 97 mm away & 10 days were in hand but that didn't happen !! 
And now instead, we are seeing one of the slowest 100 mm !! So it's called as Vagaries of Weather !! As it will be taking long 23 days to score 100 mms !! 
Meaning if by tomorrow SCZ seasonal total crosses 2003 mm mark then it can be said that for scoring 100 mms it taken long 23 days !


BB-7 will be forming by 13/14th of August in the North-West Bay of Bengal.

Under the influence of UAC over north coastal Odisha & same tilting with height in south-west wards, Telangana was lashed with heavy rains!!
