  1. Comparing the Leh event with the year 2005 drencher over Mumbai, the latter was with two thunderstorms that poured 94 cm of rain in a radius of about 10 km around Mumbai together lasting about 18 hours on July 26 that year. In contrast, Colaba at the southern tip of Mumbai city had only 7 cm of rain during the same period. This is the nature of thunderstorms whose size and scale are small compared to low pressure vortices.

    Hopefully tambaram at the southern tip of chennai is not left like colaba πŸ˜‰ ….rainfall sterday over tambaram in 5mm

  2. Andhra-Karnataka border… in the Tirupati-Bangalore route had got decent rains.. we might expect something from Kolar,Hoskote

  3. It never really rains in Ladakh, which is geographically categorised as a β€œcold desert.” The destruction in the floods was all the more because people in Ladakh, confident of dry conditions, have traditionally used mud in much of their architecture. The Leh disaster has come at the same time as Pakistan experiences its worst floods in a century. Across South Asia, weather patterns are changing in unpredictable ways, and require to be studied so that we are better equipped to deal with them

  7. Southwest Rajasthan and adjoining Pakistan have been warned of extremely heavy rains during this period. Surface charts prepared by the IMD tend to confirm conditions that are identified with a β€˜break monsoon’ as an active monsoon low-pressure area over West India dies out.

    This phase, however, would bring East and North-East India besides parts of south-east coast, including Tamil Nadu, under a wet cover.

  8. Guys, it is only the beginning of August.. For the past few years the south west monsoon starts receding from Rajasthan only by the 3rd week of September…

  9. That’s really welcome news. Good to note that there will be some rainfall activity from tomorrow. Yesterday was a hot and highly humid day.
