    • ya ya..cloud direction has changed..coming from east now..heavy rains to commence from tmrw early morning in Nagai..we may get drizzles/light rain from tmrw evening…but just drizzles would make the climate worse for Chennai.. 😦

  4. Nobody in Chennai and coastal districts other than few like us will be aware of this surprise wave..inform ur friends and relatives and let them know..don worry even if they laugh..they will praise u tmrw! 😀

    Expecting nil complaints from Besant Nagar beach boy-ashwinds..atleast for tmrw and Tuesday!

    1) Dont waste ur time Sel
    2) Nunga may get only drizzles..AP will be left dry
    3) Expecting bright sunshine during my jog at Marina tmrw and Tuesday
    4) Cehnnai getting rains tmrw is a miracle and next to impossible

  6. Temp past few days has been normal at around. Any rain this week will mark the official arrival of summer.
    Will it rain though? I am not 100% convinced and – man I haven’t gone jogging in over a month.

  7. kea,sorry to say…so funny to hear tat u r nt convinced….actually wen u got convinced??? u will be pessimistic even during our monsoon,now no need to say…………..kea ‘s mind voice:”panguni veyil palla kadichitu adikuthu, mazhai aam la mazhai….ponga pa pulla kuttigala padika vainga…”

    • Sel, now he will talk lik this only..but once it starts raining, he vl boast of rains in Nunga non-stop…Nunga’la apdi..Nunga’la ipdi…

      Appo mattum edhavadhu rain pathi peasattum, appo paathukalam!

  8. during april 2005, a lp (easterly wave) affected tn including chennai. we had 2 solid days of rainfall. im expecting something like tat

    March 7, 2012

    Jon – a weak easterly wave may affect central n south tn from 12th.very unusually for tis time of the year

    Kea – dont believe this. check my new poll

    :mrgreen: 😆 😮 😛 😀

  11. Vagaries Forecast for Chennai
    Chennai: As a weak easterly wave moves westwards, it is strenghtened by a UAC which will form over S.I. Karnataka. Inflow of moisture and clouds will bring rains on Monday to South T.N. and Chennai. Upto 5-10 mms could be expected in the city.

    The rain spell will last for a couple of days. The rain bearing easterlies will change course as the high forms over the Bay from Wednesday.
    Winds will turn SE from Thursday.

    Early in the week, low temperatures will be around 25c, but revert back to 23c after Wednesday.

  12. Juz went thru the Archives….Its been a year since i started posting with the name ‘Originaldashman’ 🙂 My first post with this name was on Feb 25, 2011

    It all started with Kea coming up with a ‘brilliant’ idea 💡 on Feb 24, 2011 which allowed only registered members to post on Kea blog..

    What a coincidence! Even Selcyclone transformed into Selvanfun on Feb 25, 2011 !!! 😎

    • There appeared a lot of dashes who spoiled my image (double-dash, triple and quad dashes) who made life horrible for Kea, Sel and even fuelled an ugly spat between the innocent Jon and KR! Its fun even reading now… 🙂

  13. guys, where r the rains? its still clear skies and just the eastern horizon looks a bit cloudy! 😦 when can v expect some relief from this heat?

  14. Yes, it is hot and sticky..hope the forecasts come true for us..most models predicting 10-15mm over the next 36 hours.

  15. Temp is slightly lower. But yesterday morning was much more pleasant with the breeze. The easterlies as usual have just bumped up the humidity and forgotten to give us any rain.

  16. Bangalore could see its first Thunderstorms of the year, although isolated one’s.. lots of TS seeds and greying quickly..

  17. Chennai (nunga) gets 1.6 from tis easterly wave but many places in central n south tn have received some decent amount

  18. • La Niña has weakened across the tropical Pacific Ocean.*
    • Equatorial sea surface temperatures (SST) remain at least 0.5°C below average
    in the central Pacific, but have warmed considerably across the east-central and
    eastern Pacific Ocean over the last month.
    • Atmospheric circulation anomalies remain largely consistent with La Niña.
    • La Niña is expected to transition to ENSO-neutral conditions by the end of April

  19. Dry weather returns to chennai with a banging 33deg C temp today and next ten days gonna be scorching. Accu weather and weatherunderground predicts really high temps reaching 36 with heat index of 47!!! So fingers crossed! 😀

  20. passed by indranagar this morning, looks like they got heavier rainfall than us last night, puddles of water still visible on the roads this morning
