Note on Monsoon watch.
In the last week, the monsoon trough moved to foot hills of Himalaya. In coming week, due to system forming in North Bay of Bengal on 6th or 7th August, the monsoon trough may move little southwards but not affecting weather over Maharashtra and Gujarat. This system only will give rainfall to northern part of Central India and North West India. Hilly area also will receive heavy rainfall because of position of monsoon trough.
The cyclone in the Pacific sea has adversely affected the monsoon over India. The two cyclones which were moved to South china sea, affected the direction of monsoon current over Bay of Bengal. In coming weeks, one or two circulations may be converting into low but they will be forming in the northern part of Bay of Bengal so it will not benefited Central India especially Vidarbha and Marathwada.
