assess the impact of irrigation on the Indian peninsula. They successfully simulated irrigation water requirements and showed that intensive irrigation has a regional impact on the partitioning of energy between sensible and latent heat fluxes. However, they did not consider the effect of reservoir operation on the temporal variability of water available in the river channels. Several other modeling studies have quantified the influence of irrigation on regional climate ( Boucher et al. 2004

heavy precipitation reaching as high as 200 mm in 24 h. The second event is a relatively rare tropical stormlike system characterized by two twin cyclones over the Tyrrhenian and Ionian Seas. These tropical stormlike cyclones, named “medicanes” by Emanuel (2003) , normally develop in September, October, and November, when the Mediterranean sea surface temperature is high, and can induce extreme weather and hazards on islands and coastlines. A couple of such hurricane-like cyclones in the
