Abstract

A nonhydrostatic atmospheric model with a resolution of 30 km is used to make predictions of the rainfall during the onset phase of the southwest monsoon (SWM) of 2003. Model predictions of the pentad rainfall time series indicate good predictions up to lead time of 5 days. The correlation coefficients (CCs) between the model-predicted and observed rainfall at different locations, representative of the five homogeneous regions of SWM rainfall, over the Indian subcontinent show correlations significant at 90% level up to 5 days lead time with values above 0.32. The spatial distribution of the model-predicted pentad rainfall show an advancement of the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal branches of SWM over the Indian subcontinent up to 5 days lead time.
