Any update on Southern India rains - completely silent since 3rd week of august. No systems are forming over southern India - why? Bangalore not a single drop of rain in September (in theory suppose to be rainiest month) and also since June not a single heavy spell has occurred. Last year also Bangalore witnessed same pattern SWM was extremely bad and weak. We require Bay systems to form in lower latitude which can benefit parched south east India. Onset of NEM and quantum is eagerly awaited.

SWM 2019 has really focused with extreme rains only for Maharashtra,Central India,Gujarat(highest beneficiary) and Rajasthan.
