Malout - today, clear sky..Dark blue, hot 43°C South Winds. #iwm
Monsoon Watch -4  Part II....Quantum Estimate for SWM..

If we take into account, that the ENSO is today is El Nino and "leaning" towards a stronger El-Nino phase by,say,July, then:

a) Till July, we can see slightly below normal rainfall and progress of the SWM in parts of  Sub-Continent regions. Nino conditions in the Pacific Oceans will send a few "pulses" to create "in situ" systems in the Bay, and the first 2 months will see around 3/4 noteworthy systems traversing the Sub continent. WDs will be few, hence, we can expect a few systems to track towards Central and Northern India, resulting in good rains in the plains of N.India and Northern Pakistan regions..and fairly good above normal rains in Nepal.

During the Northern track of the system, the monsoon trough could be pulled far North into the Himalayas, and possibility of "short "break Monsoon in 3rd week of July or near around that time period.
Break monsoon situations, and winds bringing in moisture from the Bay (diverted to the NW directions) will result in excessive rainfall this season in Nepalmore so the Eastern regions. NE states of India will get continuous feeding from the Bay. (Cherrapunji/Mawsynram seems the likely candidate for the highest SWM rains).

SWM on set and deep south Mascarene High

 * Again SE coast in TN is to be active rather than the SW coast of India.

** More sea erosion in east coast will be there and moderate rain in east coastal and  immediately adjoining(west)  areas in TN

*** Streams in eastern / western slopes too will get flash flood.

**** SWM onset may vary / or ?? delayed??
climatologicaly speaking, there were records of SUMMER rainfall and floods in TN.

Records depicting floods in River Vaigai When KALALAGAR is dipping in Vaigai,
 documentary evidence were there to depict animal migration towards eastern slops in Tamil nadu during such climatological conditions especially at foot hills of western guards in TN.
The towns names were derived from migration of elephants [KARIVALAMVANTHANALLUR]
