Abstract/Summary

The onset of the South Asian summer monsoon in different regions in India is highly variable from year-to-year and is tied to the large-scale environment. Convective cloud development is considered to be an important component of the monsoon advance. Therefore, using 12 Doppler radars across India, we examine the relationship between cloud development and monsoon onset at each site. Convective area correlates well with precipitation for all sites. However, only Mumbai, Nagpur and Bhopal show a clear increase in convection after monsoon onset. Elsewhere, complexities associated with the definition of onset and the local environment result in less clarity in cloud development.
