Tracking west but loosing strength. That is BB7.
Reduced than expected rains in Mumbai.Specially less in interiors.

Karachi to get good rains from system on Saturday and Sunday. Around 40 mms in places.

Great news... Mumbai Maharashtra requires break monsoon which is lacking... neither monsoon moves to east nor near foothills - usually august we see spells of sunshine.
Entire MAHA in floods.... specially pune,ghat areas,Satara,Kolhapur... dams are overflowing...Vagaries flash snippet for Mahabaleshwar... is like Cherrapunji figures... Mahabaleshwar crosses 6000mmm !

Wow.

Hi SSET

A station in Tamil Nadu has received 82 cm in 24 hours.
That is huge by any yardstick ... right.

This does not change the fact that overall Tamil Nadu has only received 11 cm of rain since 1st June which also does not change the fact that the rainfall received from 1st June till 8th August is only 4 cm lesser than what Tamil Nadu normally gets during this period.

Many a times you take the outlier rainfall figures from a couple of stations and paint a picture that is simply not true. Case in point, Gujarat rainfall even as this moment is 9% below normal. Going by your comments a person may end up concluding Gujarat is receiving record breaking rainfall.

Hi SSET
You mentioned Jaisalmer(West Rajasthan) in your previous comment.
1st June to 8th August.
Expected rainfall 16.6
Actual rainfall received 16.0

A pretty average monsoon.
You can take the numbers from last 10 years. They tell the same story.

This blog is about forecasting by mainly Rajesh and also sharing hard numbers(Pradeep,GSB, Rohit and others do that). Please throw hard numbers here.
Regards
Saurabh

Blog owner Rajesh Bhai needs to see whether any blog participant is spreading fake/wrong news just to create sensation. @sset has been spreading fake news about less rainfall in South & more rainfall in West. Instead of contributing or asking any constructive qns he shows some old data and doesn't want to live in the present. Hope Blog owner takes cognizance of this fact and stops helping spread fake news.
