STH Stormwatch : Last update on storm for 02Aug2015

1.In the absence of more detailed information from IMD websites (which seem to be on an extended weekend holiday) through the day , I have placed above :-
a. Satellite image from Nepal MFD which shows the storm position at approx 8.00pm IST.
b. Image of lightning (blue dots - associated severe weather in thundershowers and rain) in the entire south Asian region from the University of Washington at approximately the same time.
The lightning position in India coincides with the storm position.( The red stars in the lower image indicate position of the ground stations for lightning detection)
2. The absence of clouding from south Bengal as compared to previous image should come as a huge relief to most of us.
