Abstract: Extreme events related to severe thunderstorms have been increasing day by day in recent years over India. Due to the shorter span of occurrence, these events are tough to be predicted. To achieve this, we took the help of the satellite data. In this paper, we analysed the two severe thunderstorm cases in May 2019 by INSAT-3D satellite data. This satellite data helps us to monitor the convective cloud system every 30 minutes. Using this satellite data we are able to calculate the atmospheric indices like LI, KI, TTI and HI for every 30 minutes. These satellite derived atmospheric indices gives us a clear indication of development of Convective system before 3 -4 hours.
