The strengethening of SWM Power House.

Mauritius Meteorological Service
270514 12Z

290514 12Z
The strengthening of High near Madagaskar is evident.  This gives a ray of hope for the much expected SWM flow into Arabian Sea in the ensuing days. As pointed out by a seasoned meteorologist cross equatorial bursts in Arabian Sea are noticed.
This will enhance the upheaval near Somalia coast to make a fall [rapid] in SST there and ensure monsoon wind to lash west coast of India.  
The strength 1024 hPa is quite normal for this time. But still it is in pre monsoon stage.
There is yet another segment of High with 1020hPa and it gives cross equatorial winds across Bay
