September 10, 2019 6:23 PM |

Southwest Monsoon 2019

The month of September started on a rainy note for Central and East India. Good rains were even seen in parts of Rajasthan and Gujarat as well. Nearly for the last five days, a Low-Pressure Area has been hanging around.

In the recent past, moderate to heavy rains have been witnessed along the West Coast as well. All these rains have been recorded in the first ten days of September itself.

Naliya in Gujarat which is the least rainy station has to date recorded 139 mm of rains against the normal of 34 mm. Similarly, Bhuj has also recorded 91 mm of rains against the normal of 48 mm. Both these places are in Kutch and are co-related. The figure tells us that Naliya at present is almost double its normal.

On similar grounds, Ahmedabad has recorded 152 mm of rains against the normal of 87 mm. Coming to the dream city, Mumbai, wherein hefty showers battered the city this Monsoon season. It has to date recorded 791 mm of rains against the normal of 341 mm. Mumbai has easily managed to surpass its decade long monthly record of 756.5 mm, which was recorded in the year 2016. The all-time September record for the city of Mumbai stands at 920 mm observed in the year 1954. Coming to Madhya Pradesh, wherein flooding rains have been a sight this year. If we talk about Bhopal, then the normal for this place is 181 mm and has actually recorded 276 mm of rains.

If we talk about Raipur wherein the rains to date are 282 mm against the normal of 230 mm.

Good rains didn’t leave the West coast as well, wherein Mangaluru recorded 417 mm of rains till date against the normal of 286 mm. Kannur in Kerala also recorded 305 mm of rains against the normal of 230 mm.

Since it is the last month of the season, the rains will now reduce all over the west and the coastal parts of the country. Accordingly the monthly normal for the stations also sees a dip.

As soon as the Southwest Monsoon will withdraw from the country, the Northeast Monsoon will hit the southern peninsula.
