Abstract

In this study an effort has been made to find out the contribution of low pressure areas (or lows) towards the rainfall of northern and central India during the monsoon months of June to September in the absence of more intense cyclonic disturbances such as depressions, deep depressions and cyclonic storms. 15 years of data from 1983 to 1997 has been used to study this aspect. This study has shown that the occurrence of moderate to heavy rainfall mainly depends upon their frequency, life span, track followed and origin of these disturbances provided there are no inhibiting meteorological factors like 'break' monsoon situations.
