Posted on Sunday night: Mumbai City, after low rains on weekend,  may see increase in Rainfall to 30-35 mms/day  on Monday 4th and Tuesday.
Outer Townships get increase compared to weekend...

El-Nino Status 2014....prepared on 3rd August 2014.

The El Nino 2014 has stalled ! And Neutral Conditions Continue.

ENSO to develop requires the Sea Surface Temperatures to warm up. And the warming should go beyond the +0.5c anomaly. For this, the atmospheric support is needed. And that is suddenly lacking this last 15 days. ENSO can develop into El Nino with the assistance of both the sea and atmospheric parameters.

As a result, the Sea surface temperatures have stopped warming, in fact cooled a bit. Our region concern is the NINO has cooled by 0.3c last 15 days, and that anomaly is near about the long term average.

SOI (Southern Oscillation Index) last observed was -5.2. Certainly refraining us from calling it an El Nino event .

The strong MJO wave has moved East, and Negative OLR anomalies (enhanced convection and precipitation, blue shading) were observed near Indonesia and in the western Pacific. Factors related to this like Kelvin Wave and Tropical Cyclones have influenced the convection.

In 2nd and 3rd week of August, our seas can get a "Neutral MJO" condition..
Normally, MJO forecasts are most accurate when the MJO event has started. That is when enhanced convective activity starts developing, and the "wave" propagates Eastwards.

Ocean Nino Index. This index should be +0.5 for 5 consecutive overlapping seasons. Current Index is 0.2.

The Aust. Bureau of Met has given the "Watch" status to the event.Given recent easing in conditions and model outlooks, if an event when occurs, is unlikely to be strong. 

Hence, formation of Proper El Nino difficult to occur before November 2014.

Hi Nilesh, You must be missing your hometown Sambhalpur massive rain and cool weather this year !! Otherwise last few years you used to comment here in blog that every BB low giving massive to many part of Orissa why only Sambhalpur missing it !
Any ways I m sure you must be enjoying our west coast Valsad rain this year.
As Valsad current SWM season total rainfall is 1557mm till today.. So in excess by 347mm !

Sudeden changes in parameters leading to el nino suggesting easing out of phenomena even if it occurs proves tht one can only makee efforst to forecast the weather bt can not predict the exact occurence of even. At the begining of this year US forecasters wre predicting a very strong occurence of el nino and they all are being proved wrong today.

prabhu archana: Firstly would like to know where exactly, near which place, are your plantations located ?
Iddukki region had good rains between 7 cms (Munnar) and averaging around 4cms in most places.
Idukki dist has received almost normal rains till today. 1367 mms against normal of 1418 mms.
Would expect same trend on Monday 4th, a slight decrease on Tuesday. Rainfall decreasing for 3/4 days from Tuesday 5th evening. Much less rains from Wednesday.
