High pressure

 Synoptic chart of date 16.06.2012 / 1200 GMT

The high pressure [Mascerene High] with centre pressure 1028 hPa is located near 350 S / 52.50E, and is with lesser force.  Another high 27.50S/ 900E is located in SE to NW direction.  The 1028 hPa high is blowing cross equatorial winds to touch 150 N and beyond in Indian west coast. I consider this as a good sign for strengthening of SWM 2012 across west coast.
