Hurricane Isaac

Hurricane Isaac moved towards New Orleans and the United States’ Gulf Coast on August 28, 2012. This movie shows the movement of the hurricane from dawn to dusk. GOES-14—a geostationary weather satellite temporarily taken out of on-orbit storage—took one image every minute, compared to the standard of one image every 15 minutes. The “super rapid scan” images reveal the movement of clouds at different altitudes, and the rapid development of thunderstorms near the storm’s core as evening approached.
The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) normally operates a pair of Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites—GOES-East and GOES-West—to monitor the nation’s weather. Before becoming operational, GOES satellites are stored in space, which is safer and less expensive than preserving them on the ground. NOAA took GOES-14 out of storage in August of 2012 to evaluate applications of high-frequency imagery.

Rainy week forecast for most regions

Rain-driving low-pressure systems have brought six per cent more rain than normal for the country during the past week ending Wednesday.
It was only two per cent below average the previous week, which is still within the normal range.

The low-pressure systems had remained elusive during June and July as the Bay of Bengal, where these get generated, idled.
But things started falling into place from the latter part of July, reversing the ‘drought conditions’ in the Bay.
Rains, too, have followed, though their spatial distribution leaves much to be desired still.
Parts of north-west India, peninsular as well as east India continue to show a rain deficit. Gujarat, where only scanty rains have fell, has fared worse.
The overall deficit remains 12 per cent, though it is a significant improvement over what a bad June and July seemed to portend.
Meanwhile, Climate Prediction Centre of the US National Weather Services has signalled to fresh rains developing in the Indian Ocean during the next seven days.

Entire eastern Arabian Sea (covering Lakshadweep Islands); the west coast from Konkan-Goa to Kanyakumari; southern peninsula (southern Maharashtra, southern Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu) and entire south Bay of Bengal (Andaman and Nicobar included) will all come under rain cover during this period.
An extended outlook by the US National Centres for Environmental Prediction said that the ‘productive monsoon’ session would continue to hold until mid-September.
An India Meteorological Department (IMD) update on Thursday evening said that the monsoon was vigorous over coastal Karnataka during the past 24 hours.

It was only slightly less intensive over Konkan, Goa, south interior Karnataka, Kerala, sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim and Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
Meanwhile, a fresh low-pressure area has formed over west-central and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal off south Odisha and north Andhra Pradesh coasts.
Heavy to very heavy rainfall has been forecast over coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, west Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand during the next two days.
Heavy rainfall may also lash coastal Karnataka, Kerala, the northeastern states, east Rajasthan and Haryana during this period.

The MJO is coming out of its weak phase rapidly, and going into "neutral" mode. Possibly can get into a moderately (not very) strong phase from the 26th of August.

I do not expect much from the Low mentioned below, hence do not think it should be numbered.
But, I expect another "better" low in the Bay around the 29th of August. 

The mentioned vortex (Friday Blog) off the West coast may form by Tuesday, and strengthen the trough.
A Low has detached itself from the monsoon axis in the North, and stands independently below the axis. Situated on the Orissa/W.Bengal coast, and is at 1000 mb. 
A trough runs down south from this low. Running along the Easy Coast, the trough cuts inland from North TN coast, and at 1200 UTC Saturday, shows a line of wind discontinuity from North TN coast down Southwards. Winds to the West of the "line" are NW and SW to the East of the "Line."
The progress of the Low and trough needs to be monitored next 12 hrs.
See more updates in vagaries also.

Cherrapunji crosses 10000 mm for the year 2012

Peninsula Giants in Maharashtra and Karnataka stole the show in August with stations such as Kollur, Agumbe, Kitwade, Amboli, Shiragon, Tamini and Dawdi all getting close to 2000 mm in 20 days in August.

Cherrapunji, after posting monstrous rainfalls of 3600 mm in July and 3450 mm in June 2012, August was silent till yesterday with just 500 mm till 19th. Yesterday it got around 105 mm and followed it with a 384 mm today. I posted earlier that Cherrapunji would cross 10000 mm mark by mid August.

Here is the list of instances in past few years, when Cherrapunji has crossed 10000 mm and the date of crossing is as follows -

2012 - 21st August, 2012 (10298 mm till date)
2011 - it did not cross 10000 mm for the year (ended year at 8372 mm)
2010 - 23rd July, 2010 (ended year at 13472 mm)
2009 - it did not cross 10000 mm for the year (ended year at 9070 mm)

Will it cross 14000 mm mark for the year, i dont think so personally. In last 20 years of rainfall in Cherrapunji it managed to cross 14000 mm mark only thrice.

1995 - 14210 mm
1998 - 14537 mm
2004 - 14791 mm

Last time when hell broke loose in Cherrapunji in a Calender Year was in 1974 when  it got around 24555 mm rainfall with 8205 mm falling in July alone.

Reduction in rainfall across Kerala over past century with Peermade Annual Rainfall reduced from 5165 mm from 4428 mm

Peermade (-737 mm), Kottayam (-404), Punalur (-399), Tiruvalla (-361) and Alappuzha (-269) are those stations in the State which have witnessed significant reduction in their annual rainfall during the last century. Y.E.A. Raj, Deputy Director-General, Regional Meteorological Centre, Chennai, revealed this during a special address at the Kerala Environment Congress 2012 here. 

The topic of his address was ‘Extent of climate change over India and its projected impact on Indian agriculture.’Climate change in respect of individual stations manifests with mixed trends with positive and negative changes, he said. For instance, positive trends are available from stations such as Kochi (+ 100.6 mm) and Kasaragod (+153.5 mm) in annual rainfall in the State.

“It must be stated here that rainfall series for individual months/seasons in some of the series may have shown a significant trend.In some other cases, these trends would have manifested only recently.
“A more detailed analysis of time series must be performed to detect and analyse such incidence,” Raj said. 

The scenario of significant climate change, especially global warming, is now well documented and the evidence incontrovertible. However, in the Indian context, there appears to be no clear signal of such change at least in crucial parameters such as rainfall and occurrence of cyclonic storms. 

Projected climate change based on various models suggests steady increase in temperature and, at a later stage, slight increase in rainfall. The effect on agriculture is likely to be mixed, Raj said. The increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere initially favours agricultural production.But increase in temperature would have exactly the reverse effect. The situation is fluid and could even be seen to be contradictory at times. This calls for learnt and measures responses based on scientific facts free from transnational biases.

Amgaon in Karnataka is the New Cherrapunji of South India displaces both Hulikal & Agumbe

Residents at Hulikal in the Shimoga district, who had been basking in the fame of their village replacing its neighbour in Shimoga district, Agumbe, as the Cherrapunji of South India, have some disheartening news. Amgaon, a remote village in North Karnataka, now wears that crown.

A resident of Amagaon in Khanapur taluk walks to his village on a rainy day. DH photo/M R Manjunath
The tiny Amgaon, which nestles in the dense forests of the Western Ghats in the Khanapur taluk of Belgaum district
has reached the magical figure of 10,000 mm annual rainfall twice in the last six years. The surroundings of the village located in the Bhimgad Wildlife Sanctuary have been declared a protected area for medicinal plants.

Thrice in the last six year, Amgaon received more rain than Agumbe and Hulikal. In the last two years (2010 and 2011), it received more rain than its peers in in the heart of Malnad, the region in central-west Karnataka which literally means region of rain. In 2011, Agumbe got 7733 mm and Hulikal around 8700 mm. While Amagaon got around 9105 mm.

Of course, Cherrapunji in Meghalaya, the byword for rain for over a century, has been overtaken by Mawsynram, its neighbour. The average rainfall in both places is in 11,800 mm rain each year, with Mawynram just a nose ahead. The world record, held by Cherrapunji, is a monstrous 26,461 mm recorded between August 1, 1860, and July 31, 1861. Mawsynram almost snatched that record with 26,000 mm in 1985. Amgaon is not in the same league, but recording 10,000 mm is not to be scoffed at. At least, outside the two rain record holders in Meghalaya.

The tiny village is a paradise for nature lovers and trekkers. In monsoon, the Bail Nala, a tributary of the Malaprabha river, blocks the bumpy road to Amgaon, making a two-km walk mandatory.Part of the Amate Gram Panchayat, this village is at a distance of around 35 km from Khanapur town. “We have around 70 houses here. The population of about 300 speak Marathi. Paddy is the main crop. We have a lower primary school in our village, and a government doctor visits the place every Tuesday. If we need to go to the town, we have to walk for about seven km in the forest to catch a bus. In summer, MUVs ferry people to and from our village,” says Laxman Sahadev Ghadi, a resident of Amgaon.

Siddappa Y Barki, a forest guard who visits the village almost daily, feels the residents there are very healthy and are accustomed to heavy rainfall.

Though the arrival of monsoon was delayed this time, Amgaon received 4541 mm rainfall till  August 15, 2012. In the similar period, Agumbe has got 4883 mm and Kollur another HRF (Heavy Rainfall station in Karnataka got 4676 mm.
