  1. Today’s Hindu reports that IMD has spotted Bandhu cyclone in Bay of Bengal..where is it?
    I think they r reporting the one in Arabian Sea which is not goin to move towards the west coast!

  2. winds of laila reching bangalore.. constant wind speeds in the 20’s from last night.. light rainfall this morning..

  3. BBC says Laila will not affect Orissa and WB much and will intensify back in the Bay to strike Myanmar by Tuesday..

  4. Since the winds from the west are getting strong, there is no chance for it to come near Chennai..only fear is that it shudn take all the moisture away to the east like Aila 😦

  5. The only difference btw Aila and Laila is:

    Aila disappointed us without giving even a drop of rain and then affected the whole nation

    Laila has given temporary happiness to us and then may affect the whole nation

  6. It looks as if Laila is not over yet..it may have an effect on the SW Monsoon..but even if it heads towards the east, Kerala will continue to get good showers..the cloud systems from the Arabian sea are already moving towards India..

  7. CNN IBM citing IMD is reporting on 2nd cyclone bandu in its seeds in Bay of Bengal. Can some one throw light.

  8. ABout 30 kms east of chennai fairly good showers . the coloured portion is orange about 3 boxes above white.

    will it come towards city?? could be in another 1 hour.

    ss.

  9. Kea its lik plotting graph check x axis corresponding to y axis ll giv u the point of rain n the reason y its always blue is because of the animated pointer rotating picking up signals it doesnt represent any rain its oly a jpg image n not real time animation

  10. The colors represent the intensity as i said its lik graph a straight line from the right or top of image on both axis will give u the location of the spot

  11. john. it is absolutely right. when you expand this to 500 kms range, this is not visible. So your explanations cent per cent correct.

    in fact it did not strike me earlier, and now your explanation is excellent. That is whay they mean by that, as earlier 2 days we had seen lot of yellow, pink and red lines on both axis signify the fact heavy widespread showers. now the lines become thin indicates very few places showers now.

    we could see exactly about 30 kms north east of chennai some good showers.

  12. kEA.

    If you click click plan position indicator ( Z) you can get 500 KMS range. In fact you can see more areas. In fact both 500 & 250 kms are equally good in their own ways.

    try.

  13. I think Laila was too temporary a relief.. todays high 37 degrees is way too high

    Bangalore mostly max in 20s only

  14. I go wid u kea..btw sun tv is sayin swm rains hav cmenced in tn wid laila..i don undrstand tat..but strong w windr hav set in 4 sure

  15. Exactly 30 KMS west of chennai some useful showers. like that at about 50 KMS north east of chennai in bay some good showers.

    only the blue dots denote cloud and big line dot denote the design of the radar rotation. so not to confuse.

    we may get some showers after 45 minutes , if we get that westerly clouds near chennai.

  17. Radar readings indicate fairly good showers exactly east of chennai around 80 KMS. It looks like some upper air cyclonic circulatin in east and north east of chennai. might spread and if so we might get some showers after midnight.

    In and around chennai there were very high clouds and dbz level less than 18 never brings even drizzle.

    west and south are totally clear. see radar/
