VAYU Very Severe Cyclonic Storm

Preceding and Delaying S-W Asian Monsoon System 2019

(PL, wait as Uploading is still ON from Mauritius)

          

The Weather Dynamics prevailing in South-West Asia indicate that Disasters from the Atmosphere, Land and Ocean/Sea are on the way of causing very heavy losses of the Wealth-of-the-Nation’. The Deadly and Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm FANI devastated mainly the State of Orissa located in the East of the Indian Subcontinent during 25-28 April 2019. The South-West Asian Monsoon System started with a delay of 7 days, as compared to the Onset date of 01 June 2019. Thus, Heat Waves and Drought were prolonged.

The Low Pressure in the Arabian Sea and adjoining Kerala developed rapidly into a Deep Depression and was named as VAYU (VAA'YU). This name in Hindi is translated into “AIR” for English language.

SOUTH-WEST ASIAN MONSOON SYSTEM 2019 DYNAMICS

Cyclone Formation and Monsoon Onset concurrent in KERALA Zone 

India Meteorological Department (IMD) Delhi released the Onset of the South-West Asian Monsoon System (SWAMS) on 15 April 2019. The departure is normally forecast as from the Andaman Sea on 20 May 2019. But, the Weather System has made an Early entry on 18 May 2019. 25 May marks the habitual advancement on Sri Lanka and it touches the Southern India-Kerala on 1st June each year. IMD mentions in its “‘Summary of the Forecast Assessment Southwest monsoon seasonal (June to September) rainfall over the country as a whole is likely to be near normal.” 

However, it is worthwhile noting that Thunderstorms: Lightning, Rain, Heat Waves, Squalls and Hails have been showering in various parts of India since 06 April 2019. Besides, Phenomenal and Disastrous Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm FANI (FONI) has already triggered a ‘Weather Model’ in this Zone. Given, that Weather Systems: Cyclones, Floods, Heat Waves, etc. have now been observed to be more Frequent and Intense than usual, the Monsoon 2019 seems to be causing Impacts in this same pattern coupled with an Early arrival. So, the population of India, including those of the adjoining states, are requested to stay alert throughout the season. Losses of life, of livelihood and of economic resources, are therefore subject to Wise Disaster Management by all stakeholders.

FANI Very Severe Cyclonic Storm

Heralded by Observation of Clouds from the Ground

And from Cyclogenesis Outlook by India Meteorological Department.

                                                         
   

PABUK Cyclonic Storm took birth at the dawn of New Year 2019 in South China Sea and during the Winter Season. After intensifying it moved towards Thailand, Myanmar, Andaman Islands and Bay of Bengal. Heavy Rains and Storm Surge affected Andaman Islands, but PABUK stayed in the Sea of Bay of Bengal.

FANI Cyclonic Storm formed on 19 April 2019. India Meteorological Department (IMD) mentioned this in its Cyclogenesis Outlook for period 19 to 25 April 2019. However, the second week of the Outlook 26 April to 02 May did not do so. It is understandable that the Probability of Cyclone formation was weak, that is 33%. This period is also the transition from Winter Season to Summer Monsoon which is due one month ahead.

Yet, the Observation of Clouds made from the Ground of Arrah, Bihar, India clearly indicated the oncoming Cyclonic System. Refer to the picture taken at 6.33 pm Friday 19 April 2019. This crystalizes the concept that Scientific Forecasts are based on Numerical Models. But, it is also known that they are not 100% Perfect. However, Traditional, Indigenous and Local Knowledge/Practices (TILK/P) has been 100% Perfect. The Formation of FANI was indicated by Mother Nature since Friday 19 April 2019-6 days beforehand. It should also be noted that the application of Traditional Knowledge (TILK/P) is always complementary to Scientific Forecasts of Natural Hazards. This has been approved by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Geneva, Switzerland. Read various articles in this Website.

FANI is forecast to intensify into Very Severe Tropical Storm by Monday 29 April until 02 May 2019. This Weather System is highly likely to affect seriously Sri Lanka and and Eastern zone of India, especially Tamil Nadu, Puduchery and Andra Pradesh regions. So, the populations of these zones are STRONGLY requested to get prepared immediately and act according to the Warnings published by IMD.

Refer to the Advisories launched by IMD since 25 April (etd).

KENNETH-13th and LORNA-14th Cyclones

For South Indian Ocean furthering Record

The Southern Indian Ocean is under the threat of another Twin Systems during Season 2018-2019. Besides, the passing of a series of Cyclones, the populations of Mauritius, Rodrigues and Reunion have experienced dangerous Floods since October 2018 until April 2019.

The Tropical Depression in the North of Madagascar has been named as KENNETH (13th) by Météo-Madagascar this afternoon 23 April 2019. Moreover, another Tropical Depression is highly likely to take birth in the East of Diego Garcia. This one will sure be named as LORNA (14th) by the Mauritius Meteorological Services (MMS) in due course. Refer to the Weather Bulletin of the MMS below.

JOANINHA Marking a Record is another

Threat for Rodrigues (C Warning Class 4 Waived), Mauritius (Heavy Swells Warning), Reunion and Northern Madagascar saved.

                     

The Weather Dynamics of Season 2018-2019 for the South Indian Ocean confirm the initial understanding that Cyclones and Floods will strike relentlessly this zone. IDAI Tropical Cyclone has devastated, mainly, Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, including hundreds of losses of life and economic assets last week. Tropical Cyclone SAVANNAH which evolved, since 17 March 2019, mostly in the North-West of Australia, has luckily not reached in the Area of Responsibility (AOR) of the Mauritius Meteorological Services (MMS).

 

Now the Low Pressure located in the North of Mauritius has evolved very rapidly into a Tropical Disturbance and a Tropical Depression. It has ripened into a Cyclonic System. It has been baptised as Moderate Tropical Storm JOANINHA by the Mauritius Meteorological Services. Rodrigues Island (territory of Mauritius) appears to experience another Direct Threat in the few coming days. The Forecast Tracks by the MMS and by Météo-France-Réunion, which is the Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre (RSMC) show this dangerous potential of JOANINHA. Further intensifications are also Forecast within 24 hours.

FUNANI and GELENA Moderate Tropical Twin Storms

Trigger Hazardous Situations for Mascarene Islands

Cyclone Warning Class 2 for Rodrigues.

        

Mention has been made regarding the formation on 05 November 2018 and its eventual naming as Moderate Tropical Storm ALCIDE on two days later, that there are many indication for a Dynamic Summer Season 2018-2019 for the South Indian Ocean. BOUCHERA was named on 10 November 2018 and KENANGA was baptized on 15 December 2018 and both escaped from the region of Indonesia. CILIDA was named on 19 December 2018. DESMOND started its life on 20 January 2019 and EKETSANG was born on 24 January 2019, both being named by Météo-Madagascar.

FUNANI Moderate Tropical Storm was named by Mauritius Meteorological Services on 05 February 2019 and Météo-Madagascar baptized GELENA Moderate Tropical Storm on same day. Both Twins have intensified into Severe Tropical Storms and appear to be threats for Rodrigues, Mauritius and Reunion, with a slight probability for Madagascar. Rodrigues was already under Cyclone Warning Class I on 05 February and the Warning has been upgraded to Class II today. See the picture of the 'Monstrous Octopus-Like' FUNANI.

All these 8 Weather Systems within a short span and their very rapid evolution crystalize the Dynamic Season for South Indian Ocean. Besides, the application of Traditional, Indigenous and Local Knowledge/Practices (TILK/P) already gave these indications.

CILIDA Moderate Tropical Storm

Another Perfect Prediction for

Season 2018-2019 in South Indian Ocean

          

Traditional, Indigenous, Local Knowledge and Practices (TILK/P) have a tremendous complementary contribution to Science, as far as the Prediction and Forecasting of Natural Calamities are concerned. Such mention has often been made in the last and previous articles on this Website. Mauritius, including Rodrigues Islands are witnessing unprecedented blossoming and production of tropical fruits, mainly Litchis and Mangoes. Such a Natural Phenomenon has traditionally been known and understood by our local folks. No doubt, other parametres like heat, humidity and cloud observations, in addition to Wind direction from the ground and at sea, help in the Prediction of Natural Events. The formation of intensifying KENANGA, in the East of Southern Indian Ocean, is another proof. Refer to the previous article.

The WMO is well-attuned to the application of such ‘Life-Saving-Tools’ and is requested to activate fully and to explore further such priceless resources.

Made for Indian Ocean

Whole Indian Ocean is under the influence of Dynamic Weather Systems. On one hand, Sri Lanka and the Eastern Territories of India are experiencing the evolution of Cyclonic Storm since 14 December. On the other side, Moderate Tropical Storm KENANGA initially known as “PEACEis moving in the direction of Mascarene Islands from the Indonesia. Another Zone of another Tropical Depression is taking birth in the Northern Area between Madagascar and the Mauritius, Rodrigues and Reunion Islands.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) has signalled all these Weather Systems accurately. Météo-France-Réunion, which is the Regional l Specialized Meteorological Centre (RSMC) has mentioned Cyclogenesis since a few days.

BOUCHRA Mod/Trop/Storm-Weakening & Reviving

2nd Cyclone for Season 2018-2019

(See updates below)

    

Mention has been rightly made in previous article regarding ALCIDE, that ‘the formation of a band of Low Pressure in Southern Indian Ocean at the end of October has been a perfect indication for the entrance of an Early Summer Season 2018-2019.’ Also that ‘the presence of 94S INVEST in the North East of Mauritius and also of 93S INVEST East of Diego Garcia prove that the South-West Indian Ocean (SWIO) will likely experience Disastrous Cyclones and Rains this Season.’

The Tropical Disturbance which was evolving at 5.7°South and 88.8°East of Diego Garcia has intensified rapidly. The System has been named by the Mauritius Meteorological Services (MMS), at 22.30 hrs on Saturday 10 November 2018, as Moderate Tropical Storm BOUCHRA. This 2nd Cyclone in the Southern Indian Ocean and which has named within a week-time of ALCIDE, proves that Season 2018-2019 will no doubt beget a Dynamic Period. While Tiny ALCIDE is still struggling and weakening in the North-East of Madagascar, BOUCHRA was almost stationary far 3000 km North-East of Mauritius. As at today, 11 November, it is moving Westwards at 14 km/h.

94S INVEST-ALCIDE First Cyclone Season 2018-2019

Heralded by Traditional Knowledge and

Ahead of International Scientific Centres

  (Pl, see Update  below)

                   

The formation of a band of Low Pressure in Southern Indian Ocean at the end of October has been a perfect indication for the entrance of an Early Summer Season 2018-2019. Observations of the Atmosphere around the Mauritius, made by applying Traditional, Indigenous and Local Knowledge/Practices (TILK/P) indicated an oncoming Dynamic Cyclonic Season. It is very interesting to note that tropical fruits have been blossoming almost everywhere, especially mangoes and litchis which were very low in production during last year and during precedent seasons. The sky invaded by Alto Cumulus Clouds on 23 October 2018 confirmed the Formation of Cyclone and Rains which are approaching.

The presence of 94S INVEST in the North East of Mauritius and also of 93S INVEST East of Diego Garcia prove that the South-West Indian Ocean (SWIO) will likely experience Disastrous Cyclones and Rains this Season. It is noteworthy to state that the Pacific Ocean has undergone a boisterous season with more than 28 Typhoons this year. So, the paradigm shift is now in the Southern Hemisphere.

MEKUNU Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm (92A INVEST)

Very Rapid Intensification Threatening Directly

Horn of Africa, Socotra, Oman, Yemen and Saudi Arabia.

(Final UPDATE below. Pl, be patient. )

    

The Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) of the Northern Indian Ocean along the Tropic of Cancer is evolving in an enhanced phase. Hardly has SAGAR Cyclonic Storm (17-21 May 2018) made landfall in Northern Somalia and Ethiopia, 92A INVEST has formed since 18 May 2018. This Tropical Disturbance is highly likely to intensify into a Tropical Depression/Deep Depression very rapidly and be named probably today as MEKUNU. Eventually, it is forecast to be upgraded to Very Severe Cyclonic Storm very early. The Atmospheric Conditions in the Zone of Arabian Sea reaching 310 Celsius and of the adjoining landmass (Oman) 40-42 degrees Celsius are conducive for the evolution of a Stronger Storm than the previous one. Horn of Africa, Socotra, Yemen, Oman and Saudi Arabia all fall along the JTWC Forecast Track. So, the Meteorological Services and population of these countries should keep constant watch and be Prepared for Calamitous Conditions.

No doubt, this will influence the South-West Asian Monsoon whose onset is Predicted, by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) to take place earlier than 01 June 2018.

South-West Indian Ocean Monsoon System-

Torrential Rain-Another Perfect Prediction

(Final update after 15 May 2018)

Mention has been made in the ‘Weather and Summer Season 2017-2018’: “The Weather Systems, forming and evolving in the Southern Indian Ocean Basin, have undergone significant changes. The Patterns of previous years do not seem to be consistent. Meteorologists, Forecasters and Scientists are obliged to do their homework competently.”

Furthermore, the Southern Hemisphere of the Indian Ocean appears, no doubt, to develop some particular Dynamism in terms of Cyclones and Rainfalls. The Dynamics of Climate, Weather and Hydrology are crystal clear during the Summer Season 2017-2018. A series of Cyclones: AVAIRVINBERGUITTA and a trail of Precipitations in Madagascar, Reunion, Comoros, Mayotte, Rodrigues and Mauritius have evolved since New Year 2018. All these Weather Events have caused lots of Disasters in the respective Islands. They also prove that the South-West Indian Ocean Monsoon System (SWIOMS) is, too, Active and is prevailing in an Enhanced Phase. Besides, it has made an onset Earlier than other seasons. It also seems to have an Elongated lifespan, as its ‘peak is still ahead’, as mentioned in the last article: 'Tropical Disturbance 99S INVEST-Mozambique Channel'

BERGUITTA Intense Tropical Cyclone-

Tracking Along East of Mauritius-

Another 100% Perfect Prediction

 (Pl, Wait, for ASSESSMENT Report soon)

BERGUITTA Intense Tropical Cyclone is the third System of Summer Season 2017-18 of South Indian Ocean, after AVA and IRVIN. As a Moderate Tropical Storm, it threatened Rodrigues Island 13-15 January 2018. However, BERGUITTA showered graciously (52-110 mm) the drought-stricken island, as 100% Perfectly Predicted since 09 January. It is also a Phenomenon which has formed according to a change in Weather Pattern of this zone. It is highly likely to cruise along the landmass of Mauritius as from Wednesday 17 January. The Mauritius Meteorological Services (MMS) has issued, at 4.30 pm Monday 15 January, Cyclone Warning Class I for Mauritius, after waiving Class III for Rodrigues. The Impacts are forecast to cause lots of material damages as Mauritius has been soaked by Heavy Rains since the New Year 2018. Besides, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) is very Robust since a few days. BERGUITTA being a ‘Small-Size-System’ will, no doubt, move as from Wednesday 17 January, according to the tremendous and enhanced phase of the ACC-World Most Powerful Wind. It is Predicted to pass near the closest point at Trou-D’Eau-Douce in the East of MauritiusReunion Island too is under its ‘agenda’. DOOMSDAY?

99S INVEST (CEBILE Failed to Form) in Mozambique Channel

Weather in the Southern Hemisphere of Season 2017-2018 continues to evolve in different pattern and in a very dynamic way, as mentioned in previous articles. Rainfalls and Cyclonic Systems are already causing disasters in this zone. After Tropical Cyclone AVA made landfall in Madagascar 03-05 January 2018, Tropical Cyclone BERGUITTA threatened Rodrigues Island 13-15 January. Cyclone IRVIN (06-08 January 2018), luckily, tracked in the open Southern Indian Ocean, without meeting any land mass. However, Reunion and Mauritius have been showered Heavily during all these episodes. On one hand, while Tropical Cyclone BERGUITTA continues to intensify and to appear a serious menace to Mauritius, on the other side a Tropical Disturbance is in formation in the Mozambique Channel. This is the ‘Hot Spot’ of the South-West Indian Ocean Basin. International Centres: the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) has named it 99S INVEST; Météo-France (MF) has named it as 4-2017-2018. In case of intensification, it may be named CEBILE Moderate Tropical Storm. Besides, it resembles DINEO after CARLOS in Season 2016-2017.  Is it DOOMSDAY?

96S INVEST-Forecast as Severe Tropical Cyclone

Within 24 Hours for Australia- 

Named JOYCE

(See Updates below)

                

The Southern Hemisphere of the Indian Ocean appears, no doubt, to develop some particular Dynamism in terms of Cyclones and Rainfalls. IRVIN-Severe Tropical Cyclone formed in the West of Cocos Island. It was named, by Australian Bureau of Meteorology (ABOM), on 06 January 2018. IRVIN is still influencing Eastern Indian Ocean and a Fujiwhara Effect is expected with the weakening Tropical Cyclone AVA.

Another Cyclone is highly probable, for Western Australia. Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) has identified Tropical Disturbance 96S INVEST to intensify within 24 hours. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (ABOM) indicates, as at 5.52 pm (11.52 am Mtian-Time), 09 January 2018, that ‘Tropical Low’ is expected to develop into a Severe Tropical Cyclone almost at the same pace.

Rodrigues- Predicted Heavy Rainfalls by 13 January 2018. 

100% Perfect Prediction

97S INVEST- (BERGUITTA named)

(See Updates below)

The Summer Season 2017-2018 for South Indian Ocean has undergone a Dynamic Change in Weather Patterns, as compared to the previous years. Rodrigues Island, located around Latitude 220 South and Longitude 630 East, in under the impacts of the currently prevailing Cyclones AVA and IRVIN-the First Twin Weather Systems of this zone. Moreover, the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), the Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO), the South-East Trade Winds (SETW) and the Robust Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) are contributing for the occurrence of HEAVY RAINFALLS, particularly on the drought-stricken Rodrigues. It is a Phenomenal Zone wherein all these systems undergo an Atmospheric Fusion. As a result, Extreme Weather Events take place. Besides, Reunion Island has already broken, yesterday 09 January 2018, the World Record (690 mm) in terms of Rainfalls in 6 hours with 737.2 mm of precipitations. This is Predicted, highly likely, to happen by 13 January 2018.

Weather and Cyclone Names for Summer Season 2017-2018

Southern Indian Ocean Basin

(Pl Wait, Uploading is Still ON)

The Weather Systems, forming and evolving in the Southern Indian Ocean Basin, have undergone significant changes. The Patterns of previous years do not seem to be consistent. Meteorologists, Forecasters and Scientists are obliged to do their homework competently. 01 November marks, officially, the beginning of Summer Season in the South-West Indian Ocean. However, as at date, Cyclogenesis have been signalled rather timidly, at local, regional and international levels. Nevertheless, the Summer Outlook 2016-17’ released by KANHYE.COM is a Record in Prediction of Weather on Medium Term basis. Refer to article.

Keep watch for more.

Central India-Heavy Rains and Cyclonic System Approaching

                (Updated: 4.30 pm Monday 24 July 2017.)

                                   

On one hand, the Northern Hemisphere-Tropic of Cancer seems to be under the onslaughts of a series of Cyclonic Systems. While the Atlantic Ocean appears to be rather calm, except one Cyclone, the Weather Systems in the whole Pacific Ocean are very dynamical. NOAA explains: There appears to have been some organization of a coherent MJO signal over the past one to two weeks, though other convective variability continues to make for a complicated picture.”

On the other hand, the South-West Indian Monsoon is triggering Heavy Rainfalls and Flash Floods in which more than 70 people have been reported dead during this week and economic, agricultural and residential sectors have also been seriously affected.

MORA Severe Cyclonic Storm-Phenomenal

Churning Monsoon Rains  and

Early Warning Systems- Not Perfect

The rapid evolution, since 25 May 2017, of 94 B INVEST into Severe Cyclonic Storm MORA and its eventual dissipation, is no doubt Phenomenal. It is also a matter of fact that it has, in combination with the South-West Monsoon, caused disastrous impacts all along its track until making landfall in Bangladesh. The Early Warning Systems seem not to be Perfect. UN and Media reports indicate considerable losses of lives, damage to property and economic loss, coupled with Humanitarian Crisis.
