Anand: Seeing a isolated thunder shower in parts of Kolkata on Wednesday and Thursday..

svt: Galle ...i am not an expert in that region forecast..but, i judge a few showers (passing type) next 5 days. But rain around 7-10 mms in 24 hrs, so showers may not persist. But days are very humid at 31c.

Jivata: Almost dry for Saurahtra as mentioned till Wednesday..but will put up next few days estimate on Thursday.

As mentioned by Rajesh sir, Hyderabad got some showers in last two days. I was expecting BB4 to bring heavy showers to Hyderabad. But it skirted Hyderabad and helped northern part Telangana to get heavy rains.

sset said...

very good rains for Vidarbha... hope bloggers are happy now.... Rains continue to elude southern india.... (much to annoyance of some of the bloggers (.))

sset said...

Joshi "some showers" in Hyderabad is of no use.. My relatives in Hyderabad are getting drinking water only one in 15 days.... entire AP has parched..even if u leave drought stricken Rayalseema.. central AP/Telangana require direct low to pierce them rather than sympathy low from Orissa to brush northmost AP and runoff to MAHA/MP... I remember AP had terrible droughts in 97,98,99,2000... strange facts are AP witnesses some of highest temperatures in country with highest probability of droughts at par with TN.

Dattaraj said...

sset, I agree in current situation "some showers" is of no use. But something is better than nothing. Current low BB4 has provided heavy rains only to northern Telangaana. Generally few lows from BOB passes through Coastal AP, Telangana, Marathawada, Madhya Maharashtra and Konkan every year. But this situation is totally missing this year. Most part of undivided AP depend on rivers like Tungabhadra, Krishna and Godavari. Even if rains fails here these rivers fills up the dam thanks to plenty of rains in western ghats. But this year rains are very less in western ghats (specially Mahabaleshwar area) too.

Between, it looks like BB4 is now moved to western MP, favorite area of 2015 monsoon.

@ SSET. I know to whom you are pointing !! Indeed Vidarbha rain is good as after dry July.. It is helping filling of dams in Vidarbha and farmer of that belt are happy with good August performance..

But still drought looms over Marathawada, central Maharashtra & even in Konkan which most surprising factor !! Konkan deficient increases to -30% which is horrible situation for Maharashtra as major dam filling depends on it like of Pune, Nashik & Kolhapur belt. Also Konkan tops in deficit in whole west coast as it has surpass Kerala deficit !! Kerala deficit stands at -29% & Coastal Karnataka having -24% deficit !!

So expect Vidarbha rest of Maharashtra also having grim situation !!

@sset, rather than questioning joshi that some showers are of no use, why dont you take some action to bring rain to Hyderabad and south. You seem to be expressing distance sympathy from the comfort of Navi Mumbai. You must consider to move to South India to express more solidarity rather than a perpetual yarn on a distant forum. Else please take some immediate steps to initiate rain there and do not blame Rajesh and other bloggers here !!!
