Particular emphasis is laid on identification of large scale convective precipitation systems such as monsoon depressions and tropical cyclones. A brief review of national and international satellite systems of relevance to weather forecasts particularly for agriculture is provided. A summary of numerical products being derived from satellite data and their use in numerical models is also given. A brief on the New long range forecasting technique is included.
