  1. @Kn the forecast are more accurate not only because of superior technology but also the rains in most parts of USA are caused by weather disturbance which comes from pacific towards california and propagates in a easterly direction along the lands of USA and then reaches british isles moves towards the whole europe which is pretty predictable but here we dont have sueprior technology as well as most of the rains are not caused by the organised weather systems .

  2. it ll be nice if we have superior technology in india.. its has one of the most rainiest and dynamic regions on earth.. but accuweather n all too much here.. it was said it ll rain tonight when i saw on last friday

  4. Officials said the inflow into the reservoir on Wednesday was at the rate of 8297 cusecs and the outflow was 1281 cusecs. The water-level in the Krishnaraja Sagar Reservoir (KRS) on Wednesday was 110.12 ft against the full reservoir level of 124.80 ft. But this is in contrast to the storage level during the corresponding period last year when the dam was full to the brim.

    The live storage in the reservoir was 23.462 tmc ft. However, if the dam was to reach the FRL, then heavy rain must lash Kodagu and the downstream region in the next couple of weeks.

    Sources said though Kodagu received good rain on Monday and Tuesday, it may not added to the inflow for which the rainfall must be really heavy in Bhagamandala and surrounding regions.

  5. In contrast, the Kabini reservoir at H.D. Kote is full to the brim but its storage capacity is low. The water level was 2280.56 ft as against the FRL of 2284 ft but the inflow into the dam was 2060 cusecs and the live storage was 7.564 tmc ft.

    Though Kabini reservoir attained FRL early August, it is the inflow and the outflow from the dam which is of significance to the authorities. For, the catchment area of the river is in Wayanad region of Kerala and the flood water which reaches the dam is discharged and helps meet the State’s obligation to Tamil Nadu.

  6. yes jon.. this kar is illusioned by recent years… september is good for only bangalore and western vellore district

  7. September is the rainiest month for most places in the rain shadow region of peninsular india(NI ktaka,Rayalaseema)….almost the rainiest month for interior Tn..(october wich is slitely wetter)..n the rainiest south west monsoon month for coastal TN especially “delta districts”….

  8. @kar ok its lik “sontha selavula soonyam vekurathu” 😀 .. Chennai doesnt fit in there.. its not in interior peninsula or a part of delta districts.. if u say we are koovam delta nobody can save this world 😛 😛

  9. no they emphasise on delta district only 🙂 some bad times for august all these years.. this year it ll come in flying colors 😀 😀 😀 😀

  10. See weather underground chennai averages..

    august – 13cm

    september – 16cm

    …we ppl most of us ere are after 1987 i think..and i ahve told the avergaes from 1987 umpteen times now..

  11. from imd data 1901-2000 from the climateimp.pdf that they released few months ago:

  12. hey pradeep.. I am awake but i cant see the rains 😦 but its deeply surprising to hear its raining heavily in september 🙂

  14. omg!!..alomst 2cm in nungambakkam ..only 6mm ere!!..

    that 100 year record is for chennai Ap…wich gets lots of isolated august rainfall…still 13cm ..12cm what a big difference between the rainest and the driest month …lolzz!

  15. september known for storms from NW…its not rare..even last year we had many like dis….but thing is it mostly missed tbm in sept 😦 …those cholavaram n red hills or soemthing got 8cm 9cm like dat…expecting the same today

  16. we also have easteryl n southerly storms in sept….last sept i remember poonamalle gettin rain from thunerstrms as early as 9.30

  17. Dear All,

    Towards 50 to 100 KMS east of chennai good rains have commenced as per latest radar readings. And towards south east lot of clouds are also visible. We may expect fairly heavy showers within 1 to 2 hours, if the cloud cover spreads towards the west, which is possible.

    IMD had announced probably low pressure in north west bay but on the contrary it looks like pressure disturbance over south central bay close North tamil nadu coast.

    any opinion on this ???


  18. Hi jon Chennai 15mm.. Chennai AP 6mm..
    if that inland arid tambaram could get 6mm, u should have been confident abt the rain at ur home 🙂

  19. South west monsoon and Southern peninsula are big time friends….

    From 1901 to 2009 i.e in 110 years.. SWM has been below normal only in 1918,1952 and 2002….

  20. guys………………this looks no good for withdrawal of swm over nw india!!!!!!!!!!!! the second week (11-19) 😦 😦 😦

  21. A low pressure area has formed over westcentral and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal off south Orissa-north Andhra Pradesh coasts with associated cyclonic circulation extending upto mid-tropospheric levels and tilting south-westwards with height.

  22. cholavaram is the first place with availbale record to cross 100cm for the year….its now at 100.2cm….with 84cm from south west monsoon alone 🙂 😮
