  1. a cold, windy and overcast monsoon morning in bangalore. Really beautiful to see the quick moving huge grey clouds

  2. still hoping for one or two thundershowers before monsoon sets in. The next two days will hold the key.. Will bangalore reach its normal for may. Or will it be deficient

  3. Andaman islands: Imd wil declare the monsoon by evening /night….continous heavy widespread rain reportd from 28th….actually s.andaman sea has witnessd the monsoon yestrday,..so most probably ,today it should cover the entire island…

  4. Mani ,u may face a cloudy day…some clouds nearing TN- s.andhra coast..,AND Also a part of north-nw chennai wil be cloudy after 1pm….so certainly TS POSSIBLE.

  5. Highest temperature rise when travelling by train: Bangalore-Chennai Shatabdi express. Departure: 6AM temperature 21 , arrival in Chennai 11AM temperature 39.

    18 degrees in 5 hours! Even Ooty Mettupalayam train doesn’t get this!

  6. IMD: Southwest monsoon has set in over some parts of South Bay and South Andaman sea. The Northern limit of monsoon passes through 8°N/80°E, 8°N/90°E, Nancowri, 9°N/99°E. Condition favourable for further advancement of SW monsoon in remaining parts of S Bay & Andaman sea during next 2-3 days. Under the influence of on set of monsoon sea condition will be moderate to rough over West Central Bay & South Bay. Yesterday’s trough of low pressure over North Bay of Bengal persists.Weather seasonal over rest Bay of Bengal & North Andaman sea.

    • @5:30PM Bangalore 25 , Chennai 35 , Afternoons are always that way. Actually Bangalore gets warmer than Chennai for four hours between 2PM and 6PM due to sea breeze.

  7. Dear All,

    quite a few thunderstorms developed over western outskirts of chennai – roughtly about 60 KMs west. Possibilities to spread towards chenai by evening is likely,
    as the present levels of humidity and coupled with sea breeze might get a good shower. only if we get at least evening showers, the temperatures can come down and settle at 95 F which is moderate.
