Technical Note:

Possible weather developments for this week: 21st -25th

The currently on Westerly surge along north konkan and south Gujarat coast to weaken from 22nd June. 

An elongated UAC in the east-west shear zone will develop, causing thundershowers along Maharashtra Ghats (Igatpuri to Mahabaleshwar stretch), Madhya Maharashtra, Marathwada and Vidarbha regions mainly during 22-23 June. These thundershowers could be heavy in some parts.

The UAC could possibly organize and strengthen further, persisting along/off North konkan coast. 

There exists possibility of some localized heavy rains in Ratnagiri/Raigad districts during 23-25 June. 

South konkan/Goa could continue getting rain as westerlies likely remain strong till around 700 hPa level in these regions. 

The Eastern arm of Monsoon is turning towards Gangetic plains after causing extremely heavy rains in parts of northeast India. But it is not very active, and would cause some rain/thundershowers in parts of West Bengal, Odisha, Jharkhand, Bihar East MP, Chhattisgarh in next 3-4 days. We still await the formation of a monsoon low/depression in the Bay/east coast.

7th June... 2022

Monsoon over Kerala as a weak current. Advanced upto Kochi... As Kochi Radar showing Westerly depth

Today's 850 ⬇

Monsoon advancing into Coastal Karnataka & South Konkan/Goa in the next 4 days. 

Maharashtra Entry in South Konkan & South Madhya Maharashtra & Pune by 13th...

5th June Morning

Slow Moving Monsoon Parameters as Continuing from Yesterday

Friday, June 03, 2022

Posted 4th June Night

Vagaries' views on SWM situation 2022:

1. Monsoon currently as a establishing current over Kerala. 

2. Due to prevailing SW winds not having depth, current remains weak. But shear zone forming likely at 700 at 15N, and Westerly Winds strengthen South of it. The Zone then can move North. 

3. 200 jet streams however show good signs and indications of season change in next 4 days. 

4. With 200 jet streams possibly becoming Easterly by 9th june, but lower winds still not SW, we have a complex situation.

5. Resultantly, an offshore trough can form (due to core off 200 ) off the West Coast. 


Pic courtesy Shri Hosalikar (IMD) 

With the heat wave picking up from 4th - 8th, seasonal low in Thar falls to 990...and at TVM remains at 1008, we will have a proper gradient to pull up Monsoon. 

7. Monsoon can set over Kerala by 5th/6thJune. Progress expected along West Coast upto Goa by 9th, and into N. Konkan after the 12th (tentatively)...AS A WEAK CURRENT DUE TO REASONS MENTIONED ABOVE. 

Mumbai: Pre Monsoon Showers to bring relief from 8th.Proper Monsoon not before 12th June. 

Pune: Pre Monsoon showers from 7th june. Relief from heat as day temperatures can fall by 3/4°c

Marathwada & Vidharbh have not much too see except some localised shower pop ups. No sowing to be done till 15th at least. 

Goa : Pre Monsoon rain showers from 6th and weak monsoon entering by 9th.

Gujarat: Hot around 40-42c in most regions. Cannot estimate Monsoon date yet. Not before 15th . 

मराठवाडा आणि विदर्भ: ७ जून नंतर काही भागात मान्सून पूर्व पावसाची शक्यता आहे, मात्र पेरणी १५ जून पर्यंत तरी करू नये.
