Fantastic effort Pradeep. Hope you have recovered and raring to go !! The driest figures are surprising as they contain three stations from Maharashtra. No wonder drought is a problem as always in some parts over here.

Abhijit Modak said...

@ Pradeep. Great job Sir. Very systematic analysis in terms of rain toppers and city wise too and that too for whole India region. So it must be an very tough job for computation of vast data. So again THANK YOU very much Pradeep Sir, for providing such valuable stats at one place in Vagaries blog. @ Rajesh Sir. Really I am very lucky enough to be an part of Vagaries.. As it had provided and thought weather related concepts. And I m still learning it.

Junaid said...

Rahi said...

Pradeep said...

Thank you all...Your words mean a lot and makes me to do these kind of things.

Thanks once again for your care and support

Unknown said...

Indeed a Fantastic effort by Pradeep with all these details about the entire 2012 Indian monsoon rainfall stats.really appreciable.

Unknown said...

Rajesh sir , as we are used to see and experience rainfall with figures highlighting 2500mm to 3300mm in Mumbai for a period of 4 months, 1400mm seem's nothing compared to 3300mm.i was just wandering , if we had to get rains like delhi 545mm . O" God it won't look like monsoon season for us in Mumbai.

Rajesh said...

sam: yes, we in Mumbai would feel a lot of shortages with lesser rainfall..what with the lowest ever of 849 mms ,,,you must have visited the Vagaries Extreme blog for many extreme details..
