Ashobaa & SWM in AS

The winds in "MANNAR BAY" close to TN deep South coast is SWly with 13-15 knots strength.  This will generate wave to a height of 5-6 feet in the sea. Fisherman there should exercise caution while venturing into sea.

The Power House is now near 30 S /55E and if it continues for further two days SWM will be felt in SW coast again.  But Mascarene High refuses to strengthen further.

Ocean - atmosphere reaction is varying accordingly and affects Indian summer monsoon rainfall.

The cyclone Ashobaa may NOT sustain further and it will diffuse in the sea and cross (north) Omen coast. But it has pulled WEAK monsoon winds upto Konkan.

Ashobaa is here and moving N-W away from India

During past 18hrs, the Cyclone 01A has intensified and moved N-W.
Present position is 18.56N, 66E.
Pressure is around 983mb
Winds gusting to 110 kmph

After evening of 7-Jun, the system has continued to intensify by drifting N-N-W.
Now the system is named as Cyclone Ashobaa.

Latest, 6:30pm, IR shows the cyclone and the Monsoon showers along Kerala coast, Karnataka coast and upto Goa, S-coast Maharastra. Monsoon showers showing signs of reducing intensity.

Some Weather models suggest a N-W movement from here and may reach Oman 10/11-Jun. And some suggest a dissipation somewhere near mouth of Gulf of Oman.

Due to this Cyclone, DRY weather or less monsoon rain expected along S-coast Karnataka and Kerala coast. Some showers will continue along N-coast Karnataka and into S-coast Maharastra during next 2 days.


Mid,Upper-level circulation persists along N-coast Andhra almost in same axis of Cyclone Ashobaa.
This may persist along Andhra coast during next 2 days, giving scattered T showers for Coast, interior Andhra and some into N,N-E Tamilnadu as well.

An odd T shower may break into #Chennai on 9-Jun-2015.
