Vidarbha deficiency is deceptive, in a sense, some of the pockets are really in drought e.g. Wardha and surrounding.

Lakhapat, Jakhau right uo to sir creek area is always bone dry...but fascinating place, strategically imp and interesting bird life around the area. Best pomfret ..1 1/2 " thick!! comes from this area, spent many months around at sea ....potey

Sir can u answer my question it is what is the amt of rain does dharwad (karnataka) got dis year why it is not raining in this part july was realy dry pl answr

My rainfall estimates for Mumbai (SCZ) based on the data I keep:
Total Rainfall in the season: 80 inches
Total Rainfall in the month of July: 53 Inches!! This is around 50% higher then normal July rainfall. Some excess rain!!

Even if we have a normal August rainfall we should expect around 22 Inches of rain in Mumbai - SCZ which would be 40% of the current July rains and that would make August look much drier. Now if the August rains are lesser then average - due to a weak MJO then August would look really scanty as compared to July 2011 for Mumbai. I think that might answer the prayers of some readers wanting dry weather after all the July rain pounding.

@Pradeep, thanks for the info, quite insightful. What surprises is that there is not a single town from Kerala and only one from NE. Are there any tradional heavyweights from Kerala that in a normal situation should be there in the list? 11 towns in top 20 are from Konkan-Goa showing the clear winner this monsoon!!

Thanks Pradeep. Information provided by you is always eagerlt awaited.
Nt, There are 2 missing "kings" from the east. Buxa and passighat. NE is lagging, look at C'Punji at no.7 !
A few surprise entries this year like ratnagiri, which normally does not touch 3000 by end july..yes Mah. Have requested Pradeep to tab Tamini from next year, normally crosses 6000 annually.

Hi Rajesh,

IMD is hinting at below normal monsoon for August and September in its latest update.
What's your take on August and September ?
i think may be you could throw open a Poll on monsoon performance.

Thanks, Regards, Ananth
