Rajesh sir
As per BOM Australia El Niño is forming in full force
Worried for India Monsoon
What’s ur take sir on El Niño on 2019 monsoon

sset said...

In-spite of el-nino like conditions, Australia is facing for twin deadly cyclones northeast and northwest! Cyclone Trevor, Veronica

My worry is chronic drought over south-east india -> Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh(entire south AP), south interior karnataka (from bellary,kolar,mandya) -4 years of monsoon failure. Lack of pre-monsoon spells disaster like 2016 monsoon failure over south India.

SE India is as bad as desert!

The districts which have been declared drought-affected (Hydrological Drought) are: Chennai (serviced by CMWSSB), Dharmapuri, Krishnagiri, Karur, Salem, Vellore, Tiruchirapalli, Perambalur, Tiruvallur, Namakkal, Virudhunagar, Kancheepuram, Madurai, Dindigul, Erode, Pudukottai, Sivagangai, Thanjavur, Viluppuram, Tiruvannamalai, Ariyalur, Nagapattinam, Cuddalore and Ramanathapuram.
The government also declared the 38 blocks of Tirunelveli (6), Tiruppur (9), Kanyakumari (6), Thoothukudi (6), Theni (5) Coimbatore (5) and The Nilgiris (1) districts as affected by Hydrological Drought.

It is so ironical....

Prolonged and longer duration of south west monsoon does not allow north east monsoon to set over south east India.

Prolonged and longer duration of western disturbances does not allow pre monsoon to set over south east India.

Anantapur, Rayalseema drier and hotter than Jaisalmer ! This makes Rayalseem driest place in India.
Anantapur touches 43c (almost above 40c for 10 consecutive days). This directly impacts Bangalore which is very near to Anantapur. Bangalore already in deep water crisis!
