    What is the latest forecast of monsoon rain in Nagpur (Maharashtra). Is there any disturbance in advancement of monsoon current to Vidarbha. Date 12 June 2016

    I have become very sceptical with Indian Weather reporting agency. You said this year good monsoon, but till today no trace in Hyderabad. Becoming hot and sultry each day. We are in mid June but no great monsoon. Each year passes with poor rain and news that monsoon is retreating.
    Poor people they wait for next year monsoon.

      IMD is the authority to declare the onset of Monsoon. However, we think that heavy rain is expected in next two weeks. And whenever it rains heavily, it is called Monsoon.

    Hyderabad is the hottest also.. since the beginning of April the temperature has shot up to 40.. wondering if it will cross half century in May..

    lot of brothers talking about planting of trees. We must reduce our industrial & vehicle pollution. Otherwise, nothing will change trees are also like us affected. In today’s commercial and comfort world we release lot of carbon di oxide gases more in to the air they never go into space immediately at least for 30 years to out of our earth atmoshpere in that time they trap heat from sun and release regularly unlike clouds. So, use wind solar energy more and use non fossil fuel vehicles. I know those are possible in practical but we have to do some for that with out delay like planting of trees. Let’s wait for rains.

    The heat is becoming unbearable. Drink a lot of water. Keep inside houses in between 11 and 16 hrs. Plant more and more trees. Every person should plant at least 5 trees if they want a secure environment for the future generations.

      Yes, we run our own weather models to forecast Monsoon and in the initial stages we did believe that Monsoon would arrive early.
      However, lack of development of any strong weather system to pull Monsoon into the Indian coast, neither in the Bay of Bengal nor in the Arabian Sea, has led to the delay in onset.
      We now see that the Monsoon will completely set in by the 5th of June and thereon its movement will be slow.

      Persistent hot winds from Northwest are affecting ‘North India.’
      Even over South India there are Northwesterly winds along the west coast but they are warm and humid, not hot and dry like in the North.
      And at the time of onset these winds will gradually turn into westerlies which around the 1st of June.

      Actually, the region with the most intense lightening includes Jharkhand, West Bengal, North Odisha and some adjoining areas. This is because Norwesters are generally experienced in these areas.
      Colours vary with changing atmospheric composition, which includes suspended particles, water vapour, gasses etc. Less or more of these make the colours vary at different times.

    2.Will heat wave pick up again?
    3.what are the parameters to declare arrival of monsoon.
    4.Japa’s weather dept. forecasted 70% chance of alnino a day before.what about yours?

      1. Generally Delhi experiences about 3-4 WDs during this period. We cannot forecast the exact number.
      2. Yes, but there will be another bout of rainy/stormy weather in the later part of the month making the weather bearable for a few days again.
      3. Guidelines, as set by IMD appended below.
      4. El Nino is already existing, but we believe it will not cause adverse affects on Monsoon this year. Our forecast: Click Here

      The guidelines are followed for declaring the onset of monsoon over Kerala.

      1. RAINFALL
      CRITERIA:- If after 10th May, 60% of the available 14 stations enlisted, viz. Minicoy, Amini, Thiruvananthapuram, Punalur, Kollam, Allapuzha, Kottayam, Kochi, Thrissur, Kozhikode, Thalassery, Kannur, Kasargode and Mangalore report rainfall of 2.5 mm or more for two consecutive days, the onset over Kerala be declared on the 2nd day, provided the following criteria are also in concurrence.

      2. WIND FIELD
      CRITERIA:- Depth of westerlies should be maintained upto 600 hPa, in the box equator to Lat. 10ºN and Long. 55 ºE to 80ºE. The zonal wind speed over the area bounded by Lat. 5-10ºN, Long. 70-80ºE should be of the order of 15 ? 20 Kts. at 925 hPa. The source of data can be RSMC wind analysis/satellite derived winds.

      3. OUTGOING LONGWAVE RADIATION (OLR)
      CRITERIA:- INSAT derived OLR value should be below 200 wm-2 in the box confined by Lat. 5-10ºN and Long. 70- 75ºE.

      Northern Limit of Monsoon (NLM)
      Southwest monsoon normally sets in over Kerala around 1st June. It advances northwards, usually in surges, and covers the entire country around 15th July. The NLM is the northern most limit of monsoon upto which it has advanced on any given day.

      Our forecast does not indicate the development of the current cyclonic circulation into a low pressure area in the Arabian Sea.
      We believe that circulation will shift towards the Tamil Nadu coast, in the Bay of Bengal and possibly form a low pressure area there. However, it will not form into a cyclone.
      This will give widespread rainfall over Tamil Nadu Andhra, Rayalseema, Karnataka, Kerala some adjoining areas. Some areas in this region will witness heavy rain.

      There is no direct linkage between the two. If there is less heat during these months, it doesn’t mean that there will be less Monsoon rainfall.
      But yes, more heat on land compared to the sea creates a higher temperature differential, which is favorable for Monsoon wind currents.

    Where do the pre-monsoon showers originate from? For example: the WDs have their origin from the Mediterranen sea.
    So, do the pre-monsoon showers have their orirgin from the same things i.e., Indian ocean or Arabian Sea from where SW monsoon hits India?

    Hi – Can you please update us on the exact amount of rainfall that Chandigarh experinced last night (i.e., 10-May-2015)? Also, could you please confirm whether the rain was due to the Western Disturbance or was it a pre-monsoon rain?

    Further, it would be great if you could put some light on some news in the air that the monsoon season has pushed a bit further – that it will start late (by 10-15 days) and will stay late (may be till the end of Sept or early Oct). Usually, monsoon gets over by the mid-September. And consequently, the winters in the north-west India will be also be delayed i.e., winters will start not during mid-November but during the early December and will stay late for example: till the end of February?

    Thanks, Vivek

      Chandigarh experienced 9 mm of pre-Monsoon rain last night. This was not a WD.
      As per our forecast, Monsoon will be on time if not early i.e. the onset will be in the last week of May.
      As of now there are absolutely no indications of a late winter onset this year either.

      It is one of the northern most cities in Rajasthan, which makes it closer to Punjab.
      The proximity to the Punjab region makes Sri Ganganagar more susceptible to weather systems that develop over PUnjab/Haryana.
      This makes the weather in Sri Ganganagar better than other lower parts of Rajasthan.

      Largely speaking, the Arabian Sea has cooler temperatures (unaffected by the land temperatures of the Arabian countries), while the Bay of Bengal experiences warmer temperatures which are more conducive for low pressure build-up.
      Even the topography of the countries that have coasts lying in the Bay of Bengal is favorable for cyclogenesis here.

      It is possible for Kerala to face cyclonic storms. But there are several factors to be considered.
      In our observation whenever there has been a development of such a storm, it loses intensity and dissipates before reaching Kerala.
      Some reasons:
      1. The cyclones observed below 15º North move from East to West. So even if there is a storm that forms in the Arabian Sea, it will move in the opposite direction form Kerala coast.
      2. A cyclone that forms in the Bay of Bengal will have to cross a large mass of land to reach Kerala, thus it will dissipate much before it nears Kerala.
      Hope this was helpful.

      There are several conditions required for the formation of a cyclonic storm.
      It is initiated by the formation of a vortex (cyclonic circulation) along with favorable sea surface temperatures (above 26 degrees celsius), which is at least 5 degrees away from the equator.
      And also requires low wind sheer (less difference in wind speeds at vertical levels). There are some more factors involved but these are largely the most important.
