IMD’s Im­age Makeover

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

There was a time when weather fore­casts of the IMD were the butt of jokes. The most com­mon be­ing that one could leave the house non­cha­lantly with­out an um­brella when the IMD had fore­cast rain on that day. And now look at the re­spect their fore­casts com­mand. On April 12 at 4.30pm they fore­cast above-nor­mal mon­soon and the Sen­sex shot up by al­most 500 points the next day. Ob­vi­ously, the IMD has kept up with mod­ern tech­niques of weather fore­cast­ing. Ku­dos to them!
