Application of a semi-implicit version of primitive equation barotropic model to predict monsoon depressions is proposed. Forecasts upto 48 hr have been quite satisfactory. The results are compared with those obtained from an explicit version of primitive equation barotropic model developed earlier. The flow patterns from these two versions are similar with few exceptions in isolated pockets, however, the forecast movement obtained from the semi-implicit version is comparable or slightly superior to those obtained from the explicit version. The computational time in semi-implicit and explicit schemes is approximately in the ratio of 1∶2.

Three versions of Kuo's cumulus parameterization have been tested in a limited area model to investigate their comparative performances. Results show that the version of Anthes produces better forecasts than those produced by other versions. To identify a suitable scheme of lateral boundary conditions for the limited area model, impact of two time-invariant and two time-dependent boundary conditions have been examined. The forecasts suggest that the time-dependent tendency modification scheme, based on large-scale tendencies obtained from observed data, is a better boundary scheme for the model. Furthermore, the forecast produced with the revised version of the model incorporating improved versions of Kuo's scheme and lateral boundary conditions shows an overall improvement.
