  1. @Pradeep,

    Have u removed kuzhithurai from heavy rainfall regions doc??..i cunt see it there..anyways,it sounds absurd to include it der,with an average of 140cm…u shud have pasted it in Other rainfall regions doc…..anyways ,did it cross 75cm for the year?

  2. I dont think that we would be receiving further rain with this system. Rains will slowly reduce from today morning onwards.

  3. THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 3.0N 82.0E,
    IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 3.3N 81.5E

    System moving north west

    THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO MEDIUM.

  4. Doesn’t look like the clouds will touch South Chennai or Nunga…Clouds keep pouring in but seem to be just veering around Chennai and pouring elsewhere 😦

    • And how – I remember you were the one who clearly said “Its just a passing shower”. I was categorical that it was NOT….and you brushed me aside…mind taking my observations more seriously next time tbalaj ?

  5. I feel its the last two days of NEM 2011!! ..!!…anyways i think meena shud cross 20cm for 8.30am today to 8.30am tomoro!

    What do u mean by this KAR? We have a very wet December on the way. Expect at least 20 cm next month

  6. A kind of a storm… no visibility here in oragadam , Kancheepuram dist.. Pouring heavily here… couple of trees are uprooted due to heavy winds.

  7. Kea– when I see the prediction.xls sheet,you seem to have missed my prediction of 425mm..I will be happy to see Chennai sail past this figure by tonite..but do include my prediction as well..tks

  8. I somehow not able to get what is there in arabian sea that all systems are moving towards west …. North TN, AP & Orissa has remained almost dry during this NEM… This NEM is quite strange.

  9. It was unfortunate still rain belt not covered heart of chennai. Places beyond guindy battered several times. We have to get cloud from ennort and port north east of chennai so that the entire north, central and south chennai get coverd.

    kea observatory showed very poor rain rate so far from this system. Even kodambakkam area got some heavy showers in the last 30 minutes. could be 20 millimeters.

    but still lot of spells are likely before midnight.

    ss.

  10. The close range radar continues to pick up red dotted lines with huge breadth which ensures intermittent spells for chennai city as well.

    but the red lines should move from port/ennore to get huge quantity of rains. Still for this season we are yet to receive about 8 to 10 centimeters of rain within one hour. of course only depressions can bring such huge rainfall. let us see.

    already it looks like a new system developing east of nagai as per latest sat. picture.

    ss.

  11. @Kea – is that drainage pipe that shows water falling – does that water drop into your rain gauge (Pictures from your web cam I mean ) ?

  12. those who see radar, please see the closed range radar which is cent percent accurate. lot of big red lines exactly 50 kms, east, north east of chennai. we can expect showers quite heavy in another 1 or 2 hours. going by the long range radar picture, we can expect showers at least till evening.

    now places near mahabalipuram, kalpakkam no rains right from morning. the rain belt now slowly shitfted towards chennai and south coastal ap.

    but any time situations can change. In my area ( Kodambakkam), at least it would have 4 centimeters of rain in the last 45 minuts. now the sky is totally clear.

    ss.

  13. KEA.

    I think rains would recommence soon. we may get one or two heavy spells also. probably before this evening we might cross another 6 to 7 centimeters of rain from 8.30 AM. radar continues to be promising. what is your view.

    • Be sure to bolt those windows – otherwise there might be broken glass..almost lost one window glass over here…gale force like wind here

  16. KEA.

    Radar promises more heavy showers as entire east reflects lot of big red lines moving towards west. in fact already places like triplicane startd getting heavy rains.
    what is your view

    ss.

  17. A low pressure area has formed over comorin area and neighbourhood and is well marked with association upper air cyclonic circulation extending upto mid­tropospheric levels. A trough in easterlies extends from this system to westcentral Bay of Bengal. The system is likely to move in a northwesterly direction and concentrate in to a depression over Maldives and Lakshadweep areas during next 24 hours
