  1. The southwest bay is very active with a lot of convective clouds.. Also the Arabian sea looks like the cyclone there is deepening.. this cyclone shud have bene in the bay of bengal instead

  2. no issues chandru…. since its movin in NW.. its attracting moisture from the bay.. so TN will get rain by this mechanism also πŸ™‚

  3. But the forecasts say that this cyclone will head inland and hit konkan and Goa.. or may be Gujarat..
    It unfair dude πŸ™‚ These regions get ample rains during SW monsoon. During the SW monsoon we hardly see any rains here..

    One more question i got. They say that the western ghats block the SW winds and hence Kerala gets heavy rains and Tamilnadu becomes a Rain shadow region. But how come the low that crosses Tamilnadu crosses the western ghats emerges over kerala and gives heavy rains there.I have never seen a low in the arabian sea emerging into the Bay..

  4. No this time it dint cross the western Ghats.But many times in the past i have seen a Bay of bengal low emerging into the Arabian sea after crossign land

  5. In my area the rain started at 8 AM and ended by 9.30 AM it was non stop train and it was a very good rain….

    Waiting for the next rain………

  6. rains to continue for 36 hours more… then a day or 2 of sunshine with light drizzle before heavy rains again from 14th.. with possible low formation on 16th or 17th..

  7. We are lucky that the depression has formed over arabian sea now that our monsoon has set in completely.. If the depression had to form about 2-3 weeks earlier we would not have had any rains at all…

  8. GFS says the next week low, will follow the same route as the previous one. But it will go more west and propably disintegrate in the Arabian sea.

    There is another bigger one after that around 21st. But unfortunately this one follows the usual route of cyclones. It will e north of us by24th. Hopefully we will get lots of rains from the outer bands. But after that going north north east into probably Bangladesh.

    10 days is a long tme and lots can change before that, hopefully it turns out for the better of us.

  9. If som how low gets trapped near srilanka or pbn then entire tn will get hvy falls lets see how it goes meanwhile these intermittent showers doing favour lets hope it continues

  10. “dis year has been an erratic year for chennai……..hottest sep.,oct……..may with only four days havin crossed 40c but the katri shifted to june dis year were more than 10days easily were above 40c ……………..i hope dec ends as the rainiest month of this year”. dis one was posted by me in yesterdays post..

    If some of u didnt see dis is wat C R Aditya has replied—-

    “What Karthick says might be true. Because the hottest month this year was suprisingly september – a 4 month delay. My mango tree which usually flowers around april-may gave mangoes in August and is still giving a few! This is very odd. But I think s the year progresses, this deviation gap reduces and we are getting oct rain in nov- so expect december to be a wet season- the monsoons will totally withdraw around December 27th until then we have some possibility of more rain. If you all remember 2005, was the all time record for one day rain on Oct 29th (not cyclonic) around 272.2mm on the same day! In the past decade, 2005 was the most rainy year and the monsoons confirmed to its time span perfectly. I think we are now in the impact zone for climate change- the worst is yet to come.

    We can expect a cyclone to form near Sri Lanka around 15-17th November owing to water vapour being sucked into Tropical Depression 4a currently which has intensified into a cyclone and lies 13.3 N and 70.9 E today. There are significant disturbances over soth east bay near Sumatra extending uptil Puducherry. visit http://go2.wordpress.com/?id=725X1342&site=keaweather.wordpress.com&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wunderground.com%2F, search for Chennai and click on the map to see the pink regions of dense clouds- very helpful. also visit imd.gov.in and weather.nic.in”

    wat do u think of this????

  11. Even the NE monsoon is getting quite unpredictable these days, because of a delayed start this year. However, it has been quite active ever since it had set in during the final week of October.

    If not for this copious rains (we still have another half-way mark to go) comparing the annual rainfall that Chennai receives every year.

    Whatever the reasons may be, things are becoming quite unpredictable. I do agree that hopefully we will have a rainy spell till the end of December.

    But next year will be unusually hot! This is something for sure because we had dog days in Chennai during september and October this year.

  12. hey dats obvious.. in Elnino years it seems NE monsoon is strong… SW is weak.. but u guys would call SW “weak” for southern peninsula? i dont think so

  13. April-31.6
    May – 32.4
    June-32.6
    July-32.0
    August-30.6
    September-30.7
    October-30.5

    Dis has been the average temperature dis year….clear june was hotter than may

  14. Yes, because, the southern peninsula receives most of the rain during NE monsoon season and doesn’t have much to do with the SW monsoon actually!

  15. No i think SW monsoon is gradually weakening……….strting from N.india………….i think it will be felt in the peninsula in another 15 years or so……..

  16. im sorry mr.guru but southern peninsula includes kerala ,coastal ktka and konkan area …….some of the rainiest places in earth

  17. omg guru.. SW monsoon dumps so much rain in south western peninsula… abt 200 300 cm… unfortunately NE monsoon is not all dat strong.. I would say its not all that long rather(only 2 months)

  18. im longing to see one heavy downpour……………………….in the morning wen it did happen i was writing exam

  19. hmmmm.. but ok my tamil is fine.. not all dat bad.. because i used to read kumudam and vigatan from my child hood πŸ™‚
