Southwest Monsoon – Heavy Rains Lash Peninsular India

In what was possibly the most wide spread rains in this year’s Southwest Monsoon season heavy rains lashed many parts of Rayalseema, South Karnataka & Coastal AP regions.  Bagaluru in Bengaluru Urban district received 126 mm last night in  a spell that lasted less than couple of hours while Kambadur in Anantapur district & Palamaner in Chittoor district received more than 120 mm from overnight rains.  Pernambet in Vellore district received 63.5 mm from the same overnight spell of rains

Southwest Monsoon Update: Southwest Monsoon continues to be active in Southern Peninsula & parts of NE India.  A developing UAC over North Bay could bring in heavy rains to parts of Northeast India in places like Nagaland & Manipur while other places in East India could receive isolated spells of rains.  Parts of Odisha, Marathwada, Chhatisgarh & Vidharbha could benefit from the mid level wind convergence providing for isolated spells of rains in these regions.


Southern Peninsula would continue to have an active Southwest Monsoon day today as well aided by the strong cross equatorial moisture flow at lower levels and Wind convergence at Mid Level.  Parts of Telengana & North Karnataka could see isolated spells of heavy rains while most parts of Karnataka & Composite Andhra would get another day of good rains.  West Coast could benefit from the lower level westerlies bringing in the moisture with one or two places seeing heavy rains over Central Kerala & South Karnataka.
