  5. Kollur again tops South India Rainfall with 200 mm rainfall. Its total rainfall is around 280 cm in this monsoon

    It has got above 10cm rainfall 11 days out of total 34 days and above 8-10 5 days.

    Top 5 SWM till 04.07.2011
    —————————————
    1. Kollur, Karnataka – 2797 mm
    2. Cherrapunji, Meghyala – 2246 mm
    3. Gaganbawada, Maharashtra – 2164 mm
    4. Agumbe, Karnataka – 2014 mm
    5. Sangameshwar, Maharashtra – 1952 mm
    6. Kadra, Karnataka – 1945 mm

    Will Kollur topple Agumbe or Cherrapunji this season for the year end….its possible

      • July is the heaviest for Agumbe and Kollur too.. I think may be august Cherrapunji will beat Kollur.

        July considering the pattern in which Kollur has got rains it will rock in July too.

        Remember it has received rains continuously. Not even a single day without rainfall.

        Coming for a bet. Kollur will be the leader by July 31st too.

  6. Small isolated TS in bangalore.. Had 1 near domlur which lasted for less than 5 mins but flooded the roads with rivers of water.. But i dont think IMD city will record anything, but HAL AP could as domlur is pretty close to AP.. But it was a heavy heavy shower

  7. Chennai may have to wait for some more time for rain today.
    As of now no thundercell formation anywhere near chennai.

    only SRIHARIKOTA north of Ennore is getting battered now.

  8. Tirchy is getting good rains.. looks like miss for chennai..
    5 min good rains in bangalore filled some 500 ltrs of water in sump..

  9. Today there was good rains over tiupattur…i expect btw 1-2cm …..and luks like it mi8 have strenghtened over Tiruvannmalai distrcit….so watch out for alangayam(On the javadu hills-600m) + tiruvannamalai distrcit tomro!!
