Post-Monsoon of 2011 news
Monsoon has withdrawn from Indian states of Gujarat, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and west Utter Pradesh. New Delhi also seems to be in direct sunlight as monsoon starts to move backwards. India did get to see some post-monsoon activity as a Well-marked low pressure on September 22 further intensified into a depression BOB 03 over north-west Bay of Bengal and moved in a NW direction. On September 24 it lies over north-west Jharkhand and is weakening gradually, expected to fizzle out soon.
Back at home, monsoon has finished as Pakistan Weather Portal (PWP) said on September 16 and no post-monsoon activity appears to be worth forecasting however there are some hints during the end of September and start of October, if that is taken into confidence, then some drizzle might occur in very isolated parts of Pakistan. However its too early at this moment!
