      • :Latest Vagaries Report shows some big rains on the way:

        The UAC enters the Arabian Sea via Konkan, and can strengthen the West Coast trough (for a couple of days)…
        On Wednesday 11th September:

        The UAC enters the Arabian Sea in the South Konkan region. Thus, the west coast trough gets activated.
        Another East-West trough at 925 mb level and 850 mb levels, runs from North TN coast to Central Bay.
        Thunder showers will occur in Konkan, Madhya Maharshtra, N.I.Karnataka and Northern TamilNadu.
        Orissa and Kolkata can get thunder showers on Wednesday.
        Regions to watch out for heavy rains: Entire Madhya Maharashtra belt (Nasik-Pune-Kolhapur-Sangli), adjoining N.I.Karnataka, Goa and parts of North TN.

        Mumbai: Light showers in some parts early morning. NE winds in the day. By evening, Thunder showers, heavy in some parts. Outer townships will develop thunder storms by evening.
        Since these thunder showers are generally localised and in concentarated areas, rainfall amounts will vary upto 30 mms. More in outer townships.

        Pune: Thunder showers in many parts of city and surrounding regions. Many areas will get upto 25-30 mms of rain.

        Chennai: Thunder showers in some parts of the city and outer regions. Rains may increase from night. Upto 20-25 mms (avg) expected by Thursday morning.

        Delhi NCR: As the axis goes South, Easterly winds will prevail over the region. Some moisture may bring a few showers in some pockets in NCR.

        Thursday 12th/Friday 13th: SWM may withdraw from some more parts of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.
        The monsoon axis slides southwards towards the Central India region. With the high pressure at 850 mb, and reducing UTH, it becomes favourable for the SWM to withdraw from regions in Northern and NW India on Thursday.

        An UAC/low pressure may form of the North AP coast. This would be embedded in the trough mentioned in the Wednesday narration.

        Thunder showers continue on Thursday in Madhya Mah/Goa and int North Karnataka, but on a reduced scale. Konkan will get thunder showers.

        Mumbai: Cloudy day, and thunder showers by evening in many parts of city. Decreasing thunder shower intensity in outer townships.

        Pune: Thursday will also see showers in some areas, but chances of showers on Friday are less.

        Chennai: Thunder showers in many parts , and rainfall amounts increasing over Wednesday . On Thursday, it will be cloudy and daytime showers will keep the day temperature lower. Rain amount will be around 35 mms by Friday morning. Friday some showers again, but rains reducing by night.
