  2. “Is pre-monsoon cyclone possible in bay this year in April/May?” should have been the new topic! Hereafter, do not create polls and giv false promises..im going to follow jupi’s footsteps and going on fast! 😆 Infact, the topic contender related to him got the 2nd highest no of votes 😛 ..ur’s got the lowest but that is the new topic now! 👿

  3. Already two days of 5mm rainfall each,and a comfortable minimum temperature of 21 degrees(the lowest in TN plains),in the summer month of April……Thats y i escape to Tirupattur in the summers!! …this time i am missing it!

  4. karthik raghavan is a mayor of tirupattur municipal corporation. It is the biggest city in south india. And it is the second largest city in india. It has the population of 2 crore and it has pleasant weather of 1 degree celsius at all days of year. what a childish fellow this kr is selfish fellow

  5. What do I have against Chennai rains? I wish it rains everyday. But that’s not gonna happen. We need to study the weather carefully and accept the reality

  6. Wow …Tirupattur records 19 degrees minimum temperature(coolest in south Indian plains yesterday besides) in the summer month of april,without a drop of rain and dharmapuri 20c……Vellore and Tiruttani records the hottest maximum temperature at 39 degrees….Banglore,vellore,Tiruttani all at 22c minimum…

    By the way,who are u Mr.Srikesavan ?.

  7. Cfs model hints out early indication of swm for andaman sea, and xtreme s.bay n s.e arb sea…no matter wen they strike us… 1st Let the summer cyclone hit tn..

  8. nunga continues to record moderate temp(around 33c) but meena along with bengloor records 36c
    if im not wrong today is the 45th day in a row where bengalur’s max has been higher than chennai’s max 😀 😛

  9. According to “The Hindu” news daily both Meenambakkam and Nungambakkam recorded 39 degrees yesterday. Is this correct or wrong?

  10. South s.easterly winds is in full flow over bay…sst luks increasing day by day,wat v need is some convectional thunder cell to build in bay….

    • spot on,good reporting….Tirupattur has been recording such maximum temperatures since late february…..that heat without humidity,will never be felt unless u step out of the house for around 2 hours in the noon….thankfully that sandal town’s minimum temps were hovering between 14-22c during the same period….today it has recorded its wost minimum temp of the year at 23 degreees,s without humidity……

  11. Nunga records lower max temps thanks to Sea breeze…sea breeze has mositure and humidity with it…..So the real picture…

    Nunga – 35 degrees + 70 humidity = real feel 48 degrees
    Meena – 39 degrees + 40 humidity = real feel 48 degrees…

    So that’s y i feel no difference!

    • but i felt the difference in temp btw nunga and mina.it was much much better in nunga.real feel of 48?? where did u get tat?

  12. My heavens…Chennai is at 27 minimum ….OOh….more than the maximum temperature its the higher minium tempertaure that makes things difficult…chennai has the 27 minimum with 90pc humidity…that must make real feel around 35-40 degrees

    • Also, how quickly in the day it ratchets past 30. By 8 AM we are reeling close to 30 and it stays past 30 through most of the day.

  13. I remember once Dean Jones was commentating during a Ind vs Wi one day match in chennai in may…i dunno the year….he removed his shirt,and was commentating with only vests…He told that he had been thru many hot places in the world…but none is hotter than chennai,chennai is hottest is the world…he said “The maximum temperature may well be only 40c …but the humidity makes it feel like 65 degrees…” ……this chennai really sucks!!
    !

  14. Somasekaran ,Astrologist from arcot has predicted drought n very less rainfall for TN till august…. Ther wil be historical rainfall after august… He was the 1 who said “tamilagathai puyal mazhai purati podum” in 2011 predictions during tamil new year.. Source :dinamalar.

  15. @ehsan..

    We are ssupposed be be living in the hottest region in the world…Chennai and coastal TN and AP is even hotter than al aziziah…and its a world known fact…..the hottest of all is rentachintala….nothing can undermine this fact

    • Let us wait till the new year. There is one new year curtain raiser I attend on the afternoon, which has a prediction on the rains front…let us see what the priest has to say.

  16. All India Rainfall Toppers – 01.01.2012 to 08.04.2012

    After last year’s epic rainfall race for being the wettest places during South West Monsoon. I have compiled a poll for viewers and rain followers voting for the season 2012. The link to the polls is here Poll code http://poll.pollcode.com/w71u . The 2011 rankings can be found here – 2011 SWM rainfall rankings – http://tamilnaduweatherman.blogspot.in/2011/10/final-verdict-all-india-swm-winner-is.html

  17. Pune yesterday …Maximum temperature 40 degrees…Minimum 18 degrees…

    Hot?? …Yes..but only for a few hours in noon….after that weather will be salubrious..!!…Unlike chennai and coastal TN :-/

    • Your points are well made – its not about the statistic Max which is posted to tom-tom that Chennai’s max is better than most places. Its how long it stays at that temperature through the day. And no talk of Chennai temperatures is relevant without taking real feel into consideration.

  18. And yeah…i just wonder how people started living in coastal TN and Coastal AP…..definitely we must be awarded the people living in most torrid conditions!….we can make an appearances in EXTREME LIFE in Nat geo…Lol !! 😀

    • Trust me, Chennai cannot survive the Arab kind of weather. Summers are about 50 – 52. There is A/C almost everywhere, add to that the cost of fuel. There taxis ate running with AC the whole day. Imagine Chennai at those temp with the power cuts and the.cost of fuel.
      I still feel Chennai has one of the best climates in the world.

  19. Kea…

    wat did u say?…Chennai has one of the best weathers in the world!!??. 😮 ..Seriously something is wrong with u….Perhaps blame the excessive chennai heat 😉

  20. The summer King Vellore has started its domination…..Records 40degrees ..Highest in TN….Btw vellore is not too far from the coast to escape humidity…it has also got a high moderate level of humidity..things arent much better than chennai!

    • In Thiruvarur max touches 36 deg for past 7 days..but evenings and nights are relatively cooler…min temp around 23-25c….additionally powercutz fr 12-16hrs in a day

  21. Even Bangalore is reeling under heat this summer with temp hovering around 35- 36 degrees comfortably! For Chennai, the solace is the sea breeze. Chennai’s weather is definitely much better when compared with other cities.

    • Ya sea breeze is d only relief fr chennai people..without sea breeze chennai experience hell f d climate…..june&july r d hell f months while d onset f sea breeze is very late…..becoz of strong swm wind..:-D

      • Nights are warmer now in Bangalore. There is a definite change in the weather pattern of this city since April 2010. The minimum temp might be around 22 to 21, but it is difficult to feel it.

      • That’s pretty much the case with most cities. Summers in chennai can be felt in march itself now. When cities are compared with each other there seem to be little difference. Of course when the data is compared with previous data for any city we can see that its turning warmer.

  22. Tiruttani records the Highest maximum temperature in TN at 40 degrees with a torrid minimum temperature of 29degrees,followed by Vellore and Trichy and 39max/27min…..Tirupattur records lowest minimum temperature in plains at 23 degrees and Ooty records 11 degree minimum,lowest in Hill stations…….

  23. guys take care. Stay away from the beach today. Tremors were felt in bangalore as well. Hope there is no tsunami

    ADDITIONAL BULLETINS WILL BE ISSUED BY THE PACIFIC TSUNAMI
    WARNING CENTER FOR THIS EVENT AS MORE INFORMATION
    BECOMES AVAILABLE.

    THE JAPAN METEOROLOGICAL AGENCY MAY ISSUE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    FOR THIS EVENT. IN THE CASE OF CONFLICTING INFORMATION…THE
    MORE CONSERVATIVE INFORMATION SHOULD BE USED FOR SAFETY.

  25. Around 2:15, in Porur, the chairs started shaking mildly..i was able to feel the tremors even while standing and walking..the tremors lasted for more than 2 minutes!

  26. Bruce Pressgrave of the US Geological Survey told BBC that it was unlikely that a tsunami would be generated since this type of earthquake does not generate a column of water that could cause a tsunami.

  27. Super Dust storm in delhi today.. wind speeds of 50 – 60 km/h, minimum temperatures should start decreasing in bangalore from the last week of April, some thundershowers also expected from next week, although not much, just 2 -5 mm expected but the winds should help cool the city

  28. Places which gets 5000 mm rainfall in a year & Wettest place in each state of India

    Apart from the 14 stations which receive 5000 mm rainfall, i have done
    research which took me nearly 3-4 weeks to obtain authenticated data from various sources to see whether other places that receive 5000 mm apart from IMD’s 14 places and in the process have uploaded the state wise rainfall record holders. This report will be updated often and popped up as soon as i get more data from public.

    http://tamilnaduweatherman.blogspot.in/2012/04/places-which-gets-5000-mm-rainfall-in.html

  29. Why is this blog so inactive these days? We have a blazing season ahead and surprising to note that there are only few posts for quite some time.

  30. due to high cape factor,disintegrated TS will bloom as it nears the coast..so some scattered rain cant be ruled for coastal tn in coming days..

  31. Its a long dry april in bangalore. Summer showers are yet to start. There seems to some changes today with some structures forming in the afternoon. Hopefully by this weekend summer showers would start.

  32. The rain stayed away just as long as the match went on.. started drizzling from the second last ball and just as the winninh six was hit it started pouring.. like fireworks, celebrating the home team’s win

  33. Bengaluru City Trace, HAL 1.2mm.. after all the lightning for more than an hour 😦 the night did become pleasant though with a cool breeze..

  34. Dear all,

    There is a weather forecast in star teller on SW monsoon 2012 indicates poor rainfall for the country. However it was also promised that a good weather system in bay of bengal by May second week, would bring good rains to tamil nadu.

    ss.

  35. West bangalore getting some good rainfall today as well, looks like nelamangala will register atleast 3cm today after recording 6 cm yesterday

  36. Strangely a pleasant morning and I *think* I saw a few dragonflies around. Chances look good for the end of the dry season today with first summer showers today.

  37. Hoping for solid deluge today in South Bangalore. Last two days rain in South bangalore has been quite light.West bangalore has been the beneficiary in the last two days.

  38. Mysore , Hassan , Shimoga and Tumkur battered again yesterday. The system formed from north to west of bangalore yesterday around 4.00 pm.
    At 5.30 pm last evening the system covered mysore in south to davengere in north. On the east from Kunigal near bangalore to Sakleshpur mountain range in the west. That’s a huge area.
    See:
    http://www.weather.com/weather/map/interactive/INXX0012:1:IN

    Normally these systems form to the south and east of bangalore. Thus giving good rain. With april rain predominantly moving in from North east, East and South East, lets hope for some systems on the East.
