Heavy rain in bangalore on Saturday morning. Also last night we experienced heavy rain.

GSB said...

Pradeep, looking at last year's analysis I think it could be Konkan & Goa OR AN Island OR Coastal Karnataka.

But I am very, very poor at predictions.....LOL. I'm sure Rajesh sir can be more accurate in this regard.

brief 5 mins heavy shower in Vasai around 8pm

sset said...

clouds off Sri Lanka, weak trough over TN/AP is very rare phenomenon at this time of the year. However this seems to be only way for entire interior KAR, rayalseema, parts of TN to get some rains, else will be ending serious droughts. Hope this continuous entire SEPT till NEM sets in if any low moves that will be great?

sam: since last 5 days, the situation and cloud formation methodology and circumstances have changed. Most morning clouds are lifted fog or night condensation oriented, and evening clouds appear from today on eastern horizon from convection.
Thats why, i had put morning showers expected from wed...
