  1. Good to see Keaweather back in the blog after a brief hiatus. Chennai is far far better when compared to other places in TN. Sea breeze is the real saviour for Chennaiites.

  2. Oh that’s great kea. Let us wait and see. If we are lucky we will receive some showers. Anyways, it is quite unfair to expect rains in Chennai during this part of the year.

    May be we should wait for another “Laila” storm that rocked Chennai in May 2010.

  3. unfair or what accu predicting 45 mm until sunday, foreca also predicting around 20. WU predicting around 22 mm.

    So there is definitely some wet weather this week/weekend. Is there any IPL in Chennai in the next few days/.

    • This is so unfair. I was so happy SL cricketers will leave on may 5th and MI will be handicapped big time.
      And now SL drop malinga from the squad. He is their best bowler and gets dropped. It’s like dropping Sachin or a Ponting.
      This is called pressure from IPL and the Ambanis

      • Malinga is chucker, how can you say he is a good bowler, ICC is turnng a blind eye on his bowling action

      • Exactly Vinodh , the cricket rules are bent (like the ones of Malinga) to suit whims and fancies of individuals – ICC knows where the money is flowing (Asian countries)

  4. fight becomes bigger and uglier.

    Now SLCB asks Malinga to return to SL from IPL. Malinga was not considered for England tour because he is injured. If he is injured whats he doing in IPL instead of recovering. Valid point.

    Who will win this battle? IPL or SL. I am sure the powerful BCCI will blackmail and SL will give in.

  5. pouring rain in bangalore since 6 in the evening, steady downpour not refusing to let up.. still raining steadily at 10:36 in the night..

    • Between 2 am to 3 am Chromepet and sourrounding areas woke up lightening followed by heavy thunder and abt 20 minutes good rains

  6. This is crazy. Power cut in my area between 2 and 3 everyday from today. If we don’t have enough power then why do we invite industries in TN. Seems like KEA weather will be offline from 29th for 3 weeks.

    • OUr present Govt goofed up in power front in last 5 years doing nothing and this year it has become one of the worst affecting domestic supplies

    • I doubt 2-3 rain in chrompet, there was heavy lightening and thunder and probably it would have rained for 15-20 minutes between 2 and 2.30 am

  7. And in ma another base station at Tirupattur its been raining/drizzling everyday since april 15 …..except 17…..specially day before sterday during the bangalore wash-out game i heard it rained quite nicely….IMD says 0! …joke!!…i heard it rained sterday evening also!

  8. And on that rain on feb it had rained 5mm in tpt,IMD reported that day is “tr”.

    There was thunder and lightning in Vellore on Monday night, followed by rain. Other parts of Vellore district also received widespread rain on Monday night, with Ambur and Walajapet recording the maximum rainfall of 55 mm each during the 24 hours ending 8.30 a.m. on Tuesday. The rainfall recorded (in mm) in other parts of the district during the same period are Kaveripakkam 44, Vellore 39.8, Sholinghur 34, Katpadi 19, Arcot, 12.6, Vaniyambadi 8, Ponnai 5.4 and Tirupattur 5.3.

  9. Last year similarly Hassan showed 150cm,while the IMD banglore site showed around 115cm or sumthing!….and another town wich IMD has horrible records of is ” “THANJAVUR” ….!!!…..n i aint sure even if its Tiruttani figures are ri8!

  10. hi kea guys how r u?????????HEY HEREEEEEE CONTINUOUS RAINS WITH CYCLONE PACKED WINDS FROM YESTERDAY AND RAINING TILL NOW CONTINUOUSLY IN VIJAYAWADA AND YESTERDAY WINDS SEEMED TO BE MORE POWERFUL THAN CYCLONE LAILA’S WINDS which blasted vjwada last year and what abt chennai?????????

    • Vijayawada is having good summer rains for two consecutive years. But this may change in the 1st week of May when temperatures are expected to soar.

  11. Theres no region in the country that can beat South Interior Karnataka in the crucial summer months of April and May

    Mysore 92mm
    Bangalore AP 31mm
    Bangalore 24mm
    Chikamagalur 12mm

    The minimum temperatures are unparalled 20,19,20,17 respectively 🙂

  12. It has rained in almost all places in Telengana barring hyderabad..

    and Radha Krishna vijayawada records 43mm

    Expecting good numbers from Thalli.. good rains in Bangalore AP always signal something good for Thalli 🙂

  13. Hi guys, welcome become karthik r after long time. Vellore is pleasant. Yesterday night it got some showers. But today its so cool. From the radar it seems chennai will get good showers today.

  14. Dear All,

    Radar picks up lot of thundershowers about 50 KMS west & North west of chennai.

    considering the humidity and related atmospheric conditions, we might expect a thundershower by 6 PM at chennai, as normally thundercells would spread towards east from west.

    ss.

  15. ya i think there is a chance of even a depression in south west bay of bengal or west central bay of bengal and did any one of u observed sea temperature over bay ?it has crossed 30 degrees celcius and i am sure chennai is going to get battered in 5-6 hrs and i think we gonna get ready for cyclone KHEILA and what r u thinking abt cyclone KHEILA?HEY WE ALL MUST FEEL HAPPY AS KHEILA IS RYTHMIC LIKE CYCLONE LAILA OUR BEST FRIEND AND SEEMS LAILA AND KHEILA ARE GOING TO BE BROTHERS I MEAN THAT KHEILA IS LIKELY TO FOLLOW THE SAME PATH AS LIKE HER SISTER LAILA BRINGING HEAVY RAINS TO TN AND ANDHRA

  16. but the sad thing in vijayawada and KRISHNA DISTRICT IS THAT DUE TO CONTINUOUS DOWNPOUR AND TIGHT PACKED WINDS FROM YESTERDAY MANY MANGOES HAVE FALLEN DOWN AND VIJAYAWADA AND NUZVID ARE CALLED THE MANGO HUB OF THE WORLD AND MANY MANGOES ARE EXPORTED TO VARIOUS COUNTRIES FROM HERE BUT DUE TO CYCLONE LAILA LAST YEAR MANGO YIELD WAS REDUCED DRASTICALLY BUT HOPE THAT DOES NT REPEAT THIS TIME

  17. Its been pouring like anything for the past 30 mins here in vellore. This is the first time i am witnessing rain on GOOD FRIDAY when i am inside the church. Hope it pours in my favorite city chennai soon.

  18. KEA.

    I have been observing radar for the past one hour. massive, large thunderclouds for nearly 50 KMS length observed west of chennai at about more than 40 KMS. but not much eastward movement.

    but going by the atmospheric conditions at present prevail in chennai, there are good chances these thundercells slowly covers at least outter limits of chennai. but rains should come at least in another 30 minutes or so.

    ss.

  19. Steady drizzle in Villivakkam….thick nimbo-cumulus clouds from northeast… An UAC is sustaining in interior central tamilnadu and associated Sw Bay… tis causing clouds to circulate in(anti- clockwise direction)…..moreover,s.bay and sw bay mean sea level pressure is dipping down.so v can expect a system before the end of april…
