is there is a chance of more rain in westeren distrebance 27 in quetta ,,,and how much system of rain expected in month aprail,,,
Yes there are chances of rain from WD ’27’ in Quetta.
What will the temp and rainfall going to be in Margalla hills.Will there be any hail storm in the hills.What will happen in khaur.Will the monsoon be strong this year.
Monsoon could be affected due to the frequent arrivals of WDs.
in multan 2 to 5 mm means more than i hour or 2hour of rain
could be 1 hour.
I can see dark clouds in sattelite imagery west of lahore..Is this a thunderstorm developing? And will it affect Lahore?
Yes thunderstorm is moving towards NE Punjab and it is weakening from WD ’25’.
OH NO. Monsoon should not be delayed. This weather system always has a huge impact in our country. Just one monsoon rain covers all the rainfalls caused by western distrubances so it should be on time. But baber bhai i can see temp around 39 to 40 degrees in bangladesh, india and adjoining sindh, pakistan. so the places which touches sea should have high temperature and nowadays it is high. So how temp in plain areas can cause monsoon to be delayed?????
Monsoon ka taluq medani ilaqo me temp se kese hai? jo ilaqe samander ko touch krte hain sirf wohi temp zada ho to kafi nai hota? scndly 2011 me bhi bht western disturbance ai thi per 2011 me hi record monsoon rainfalls hui thi is it???
The temperatures of Bangladesh does not necessarily have an impact over our country. Also this year could be a neutral year unlike in 2011 which saw the comeback of La-Nina, we still have time, a little too early to talk talk about the fate of the monsoon season but generally an extended WDs means short summer.
bhai ,,,how many wd may be occured in moth of aprail 2013///
As of now 2 to 3 WDs can affect.
