OK. Rajesh, putting you on the spot.

As per IMD, the monsoon withdrawal line today moved from east of Lucknow to western Assam.
Most parts of north east Uttar Pradesh have not received any rain in October but the IMD withdrawal criteria was not being met so far, even though the rainfall had stopped in September in these parts of UP, the monsoon withdrawal was not declared. So we have a very rigid criteria being applied so far but all this changes suddenly.

Now as per IMD, overnight the monsoon withdrawal line goes from eastern up to western Assam even though there is no drastic change in weather in the last few days and a low from the bay is about to give rain to some of these parts from which monsoon has been officially withdrawn by IMD today.

Isn't this arbitrary?

Saurabh: You are absolutely correct in your observations..And correctly stated "As per IMD" by you.
Now, if you follow Vagaries, we have not shifted the Monsoon Withdrawal Line after 8th October. To this day, our withdrawal line covers hlf of U.P.
We have kept in mind the movements of BB-10, BB-11, and accordingly stationed the withdrawal.
Now, as mentioned in the latest post, Vagaries sees withdrawal from Gujarat and M.P. and rest U.P. very a few days.
Please note these are Vagaries' views.
