Weather Talk

Tropical Depression 4 has formed in central Atlantic

Unfortunately my time on here today or should I say this evening is extremely limited. I started out in a new jib today and didn’t get home until 6.30pm, after leaving this morning at 6.55am, therefore keeping me off the computer allday. It was only around 9.45 tonight that I managed to catch up and get a post done for today. I am tired and in need of rest, so this will be quick as I’m sure you’ll understand.

After looking more impressive over the past 24 or so hours, TD 4 has finally formed and appears to becoming healthier. I am fairly confident at this time that this thing will become at least a tropical storm, but the big question is this… is there anything to worry about with this storm in terms of the USA? I say be on your guard. The models portray that a weakness in the mid-Atlantic ridge will recurve this storm perhaps towards Bermuda, however models are completely accurate and there are always chances, day after day, therefore, even when forecasters talk about this thing, looking like it may turn, don’t base all on this. If you live on the east coast or even Gulf keep an eye on this.. Also! This is likely to not be the only game in town over the next 7 days. We are now into August and by August 15 through Sept 15, it’s into the heart, core of the season and it does look at though the map will portray the time of year…

Stay tuned.

102 degrees in central Japan

After yesterday’s Weather Talk dedicated in discussing the amount of locales that have not only experienced severe heat and drought of recent months but either new monthy heat records but all-time records, now Rajimi in central Japan can be added to that list as it experienced a high of 102 degrees over the past month of July. Tokyo also got close to topping 100 degrees at one point within a month that displayed abnormally high departures from normal most of the month.

The trailing end of the current system has left Guarat drenched, yet again.

Parts of Kutch (desert) and Jamnagar were the wettest spots in the state.

The figures for 24 hrs Monday morning are:

Jamnagar:Khambhalia 350 mms, Lalur 227 mms,Jamnagar 184 mms, Kalyanpur 139 mms, Jamjodhpur 125 mms, and Kalavad 113 mms.

Kutch: Abdasa 65 mms, Mandvi 64 mms (total 1087mms and normal 375 mms for Mandvi), Rapar 99 mms and Lakhpat 62 mms.

Rest Gujarat: Veraval 205 mms,Valsad 202 mms, Kodinar 173 mms,Becharaji 146 mms, Vansda 145 mms,Sutrapada 139 mms,Morbi 131 mms, Sanand 113 mms, Wadhvan 105 mms.

Plenty of stations recorded between 70-100 mms.

Monsoon axis is running thru Guarat/M.P. and into the bay region today. With the axis in the central region, some continuation of the current rains in the central region, and in Gujarat for another day could be expected. The UAC system over Gujarat should move west, reducing Gujarat rains from Tuesday.

From Tuesday, and overall reduction in rainfall would not be out of place. Regions of Gujarat, M.P, Konkan, Maharashtra, whole of Karnatak and the southern peninsula will see rainfall intensity decreasing. I would estimate the interiors of Maharashtra and Karnataka to have very scanty rains, initially, this week.Till ? For a couple of days. Untill we see the next system moving in around the 4th.Aug.and rain fall commencing from the east coast again, and moving inland.

With easterlies blowing above the axis in the nort, frequent rains, with heavy pockets would be in order in the U.P.plains and Delhi regions.

Mumbai, had around 105 mms of rain Saturday/Sunday. (estimated was 150 mms). Now, Monday’s forecast remains, frequent showers, with around 30 mms, and a decrease in rains from Tuesday thru Thursday. So, this week, initially, will be less wet, with sunny intervals, and a breather to commuters.

Lakes rainfall total till July: Tansa: 1358 mms, Modak Sagar: 1307 mms, Bhatsa: 1715 mms, Upper Vaitarna: 1187 mms.

Lake levels are rising, and quantum wise the lakes are almost 90% full. But actual storage of useable water is 7.1 lmlitres, against a full storage of 13.0 lmlitres.
