Abstract

Concurrent and lag relationships of 700 hPa contour heights over the Indian region and some large scale synoptic indices with rainfall distribution over various parts of India have been studied on a 1-day to 7-day basis by using 10 years (1966-1975) of data. Important dynamic influences causing rainfall over various parts of the country have been identified by the preparation of concurrent and lag-correlation charts. Multiple regression equations have also been developed for prediction of daily, 3-day and 5-day rainfall by using the synoptic indices. Positive skills with higher values over central India and the west coast have been obtained.
