      • We Chennaites. Hahahahaa..since when chennaites made you their representative on weather front 🙂
        Are you saying you are proud of 40+ temperature you receive every year?
        BTW, you do not dominates even here. There are a lot of places in India that receives 48 and 50+ during summer.

      • So you have made your self self styled weather mouth piece of every one in chennai. Come on man. Walk down Nungambakkam High road and see how many people share your love for chennai’s 40+ temperature. Anyday most of them would exhange it for bangalore’s salubrious climate.
        Now you have started on humidity. There are a lot of cities in Indian west and east coast which have chennai’s humidity. Your climate dominates no where. Accept 🙂

      • It is a no-brainer that Bangalore enjoys a better weather than Chennai..but..Chennai inspite of its heat and Humidity is a much healthier city than Bangalore..the natural Sauna effect for 9 months in a year makes us sweat it out and lead a healthy life..and the 3 months of NE winds / naturefresh rains is an experience which Bangalore cannot touch with a bargepole..

  1. Thers no shame in being a self-proclaimed mouth piece for my city..also none of my fellow Chennaites r gonna oppose this..u too do the same when something very insignificant happens (as always) in ur BLR (like “single low white cloud seen”, “NE dark”, “SW dark”, “drizzling for cont.5 hours to get 2 mm”..this is coming..that is coming..blah..blah..)..remember that if u think Chennai doesn’t dominate in anything in the country, then it is not even worth to think abt BLR.. :mrgreen:

    Well said Gopal! 🙂

    • To Mr Self-Proclaimed Mouth Piece of Chennai,
      By stepping outside the confines of weather you have disclosed your true intension’s. I said Chennai climate dosen’t dominate anything in India. Note I NEVER REFERRED TO ANYTHING APART FROM THIS.
      In Rains : Chennai is not even in the TOP 20 list
      In Max Temp : Its dosen’t dominate the charts either
      In MIn Temp: Less said the better
      In Humidity: A lot of coastal cities match it.

      At least the climate in bangalore is livable.

      • “remember that if u think Chennai doesn’t dominate in anything in the country, then it is not even worth to think abt BLR..” by a CHENNAI MOUTH PIECE

        Hope you understand english. I have always referred only to chennai climate. This is a climate blog . originaldashman or whatever else you name is lets keep our discussion only up to it. I expect the same decency from you as well.Express your comments only on bangalore weather.

  2. Tis s not a 1st time to c tis type of rivalry for rain,pleasant weather … Famous ones r nunga -meena,chennai-bengaloor….tis shows our blog is getting rdy for swm..

  3. To Mr Self-Proclaimed Mouth Piece of Chennai,
    Let me again insist you too establish and prove your point that chennai has the best climate in india. You said this emphasizing on chennai max temp. DO NOT digress the topic and venture in to non climatic subjects. Such blag , blag from you is pointless. Does you climate TOP the charts in Max Temp, Min Temp , Rain , HUmidity or what else.
    I have enjoyed the wondeful weather in bangalore. But at no time proclaimed it to be the best in the county. You can also do the same and there are no issue. But if you insist your climate to be the best in the county. Then establish it.

  4. To Mr. Bengloor born in 1976..

    “I expect the same decency from you as well”……hope u know the meaning for decency…if not, i will be forced to doubt ur English knowledge…”establish” the fact that i used indecent words to communicate..go thru the archives and try to understand (if possible) that nothing offensive was aimed at u or ur beloved city..we Chennaites have the rite to speak anything great about our city in this blog developed especially for Chennai weather..do not turn this casual discussion into a regional rivalry..

    I guess u r enraged by the fact that BLR has not been getting the usual drizzles for the past few days…or is it due to RCB loss..in either case, we r helpless! 😮

    • To To Mr Self-Proclaimed Mouth Piece of Chennai,

      Here we go again. All your statements are either focussed on regional rivalry or bullying others. You kindly go through the archives again and not me. You are speaking about this web site as if it is your ancestral property. Its “Keawebsite” and not some “OriginalDashsite”. From your statements it appears like you want to ban all non chennai weather lovers from this site. Who are you to say that?
      Kea is the admin and he would decide and not some originaldash.

      I request to for a change employ rational approach to prove your point. Instead of accusing others of regional perception etc.

      Btw let me come back to the core aspect of this discussion:
      ” Let me again insist you too establish and prove your point that chennai has the best climate in india. You said this emphasizing on chennai max temp. DO NOT digress the topic and venture in to non climatic subjects. Such blag , blag from you is pointless. Does you climate TOP the charts in Max Temp, Min Temp , Rain , HUmidity or what else.

  5. To “The 1976 Guy”,

    Let me get the answer first for my questions on the core aspect of discussions..then i will restart the other discussions refuelled by ur unnecessary, irresponsible, childish story-like long replies!!! Expecting such a reply within 5 minutes..ur time starts now…

    “To Mr. Bengloor born in 1976..

    • Its “Keawebsite” and not some “OriginalDashsite”.

      Kea has given us the complete freedom to express our thoughts…thnx to Kea, we feel this as our own blog..it is now clear that u r trying to involve evry1 including admin in this cheap debate..

      “it appears like you want to ban all non chennai weather lovers from this site..who r u to say that?”

      When did i say? In ur dream? It is evident that it is u who think about all these crap and accuse me of everything..u already have this thought of Chennai-Bangalore division in the blog and u r slowly letting them out..

      • Exactly Kea has given complete freedom to express our thoughts. Unfortunately some bullies like you try to undermine it.
        1) Why are you bringing this bangalore-chennai divide?
        2) This is a weather website. So Mr Dash , stick to it.
        3) Go through all my debate its only on weather and based on weather unlike you.
        4) Do not spoil the culture of this website. You are proclaiming that only chennai weather lovers are catered here. Kea has never mentioned anything like that.
        Think straight for a change.

    Hey Sel, Indha ranagalathilayum unakku kudoogalamaa? 😀

  7. To Mr Self-Proclaimed Mouth Piece of Chennai,

    There has been no answer to my queries about the core weather discussion. You said chennai dominates in climate. Establish it. Please list in which front :
    In max temp , Min temp , Rain or humidity.

    tirunium firstlande pilla vidadinga 🙂

    To Mr Self-Proclaimed Mouth Piece of Chennai,

    Good joke. Pot calling the kettle black. Childish story-like replies better than arrogant , fanatical, bully like statements.

    • “Think straight for a change.”

      I woud suggest u not to think at all..which will solve all problems and hugely benefit Kea weather blog and also urself..take some rest..and OMG…Mr.Bengloor talking “Tamil”..BEWARE guys! :mrgreen:

      tirunium firstlande…ungaliyum silapar inde ranagalatilum ulla illu pargel…ha ha ha…excellent stuff! Please post more of these things and stick to weather or if possible do not stick to blogging at all 😀

      • Hahhahah….look friends who is referring to language here. Thanks dashman you have given yourself away 🙂
        So many people over a period of time have had problems with you on this blog. Now its me. So its high time that you stay away from blogging for social good.
        Btw what is your problem with me speaking in Tamil?
        Guess now you have copy right on languages as well 🙂

  9. To Mr Self-Proclaimed Mouth Piece of Chennai,

  10. ya..true..i had discussions with so many poeple on this blog and became friends..but those were healthy debates unlike this one with u where u r trying very hard to turn this into an ugly spat and a very dangerous rivalry between the otherwise peaceful coexisting cities in this blog..

    Please don start something similar in Tamil..Kea will become furious if he sees Tamil posts in his Valai Padhivu! 😀 ..anyway thnx for cooperating in keeping this blog active like Sel said..atleast in unhealthy way..

    • I had the joy of interacting with Kea, Sel , Jon , ash, kar, praveen and so may others. Its only today I have come across original trouble maker like you. My interactions with so many folks here has been purely on weather and nothing else. Overcome your basic tendency to look at evrything on regional basis for your own good.

      Why do you try hard to belittle people who have difference of opinion with you. You are like a necessay evil to keep the blog active 🙂
      Kindly be tolerant. Do not rant when people differ with you. Have patience its goof for health 🙂
      Thanks for full day time pass 🙂

  11. To Mr Self-Proclaimed Mouth Piece of Chennai,

    I know you would never answer the query above. Its the starting point of all the discussion. 🙂

  12. Well, Mr.Vijay76, those useless questions were not the starting point..others r not dumb not to go over the posts..

    Friends, i will let you to decide..i don care about Mr.Vijay76..but u all need to know..this is where everything started..

    At 11.00 Am:
    Chennai at 101 F and Bangalore at 88 F
    –vjya

    We Chennaites are proud of that..
    –Dash

    We Chennaites. Hahahahaa..since when chennaites made you their representative on weather front..
    So you have made your self self styled weather mouth piece of every one in chennai
    –vjya

    What is wrong with my first post?..and luk at his reply to the word Chennaites! Mr.Vijay, y did u get angry with that word..?
    I have every right to say that..if u r a Tamilian, even u have that privilege..then watz d big deal? I don understand how can that
    word provoke u! Even if im the mouth piece, howz that bothering u?

    If possible, try to explain to the above questions..else, just stop dividing this blog and continue with ur weather updates..

    • Hhahahha…Good you are back. I have nothing against chennaites.

      My problem was with your attitude of attributing you views as that of folks from chennai. Very convenient of you. As you know there are other folks here from chennai who do not share you viewpoints. Infact later you even reprimanded that person. I have never represented bangalore in my blogs. All views are personal expression.

      Now that you cannot defend yourself. Shamelessly you are dividing two peaceful states. How can you say we chennaites when there are other chennaites who contradict your statements. You feel chennai summer is great . Thats it. Its your personal opinion.

      If possible , try to reply to my above questions…else, just stop dividing this blog and continue with ur weather updates..

  13. Let me list some horrible tirade from Original Dashman:

    May 20, 2012
    at 8:39 pm originaldashman
    What a pleasant sight to watch Kohli after the match!!!!!!!! Priceless!!!!!
    Bengalooru’s dominance has ended both in Chennai’s Kea weather blog and Chennai’s IPL !!!!!!!!!!!!
    Gayle failed..so RCB failed….But CSK is like Chennai weather…either all players fire as a team..or all players fail as a team!..either we will get record rains or record historical scorching heat …he he he…

    May 20, 2012
    at 8:58 pm originaldashman
    Dominating is important…no matter watz d reason…once rain starts, Chennai will get more than Bengaluru’s total annual rainfall so far within a week!!!!!

    How do you defend these statements. Shame on you. Absolute cheapness to the core.Complete sadistic delight. Archive can show your true face.
    Tell me man. How would you defend what you have uttered above. Totally crass to say the least.

  14. Friends this is a weather blog. Lets keep it that way. I do not care what this Original dashman has to say. People like Original Dashman say ridiculous things and attribute to everyone from a city. That’s very naughty to say the least.
    We are here based on personal choice and let our views also reflect that.

    • he’s just adding to the interest of tis blog which is good anyways ur points too have been well made 🙂

      and better luck nxt time, rcb n their supporters 😀

    • Last year too I noticed that. Last year later in the 1st week of june we had decent rains. But they were from TS. Normally in june we get light rains and they are from passing clouds from west. Not sure what is happening 🙂

  15. Atlast i have figured out the reason for Vijay Storm..its bcoz of the failure of Gayle Storm! 😀

    Exactly, as i doubted, you were provoked by my posts on RCB’s loss and my excitement on CSK entry..this was seen among all CSK fans..but the reality is u cudn digest the fact that RCB lost it and hence raged a fierce battle against me and made me a scapegoat projecting me against my Kea blog friends as if im ruining this blog…i guess u must be aged 36 and i have respect for it..please act accordingly in this blog where u can see people like Guna Sir, Baskaran Sir, etc..it happens in IPL Sir…get on with ur life…nobody is goin to believe you these things..its for everyone here to see..no more replies to ur mischievous acts…hope u r now relieved from my unanswerablequestions!

    • Hahhaha…Nope Mr Dashman, I am old enough not to take cricket or any sport seriously. I got to know about RCB’s plight only from keablog today. IPL means nothing to me. Many times I have expressed my views as well in this blog.

      The problem stems from your deep spite for any thing related to bangalore. Child grow up. Normally I ignore such things. There days people full of malice and bad thoughts try to broaden their audience by sticking to a community. Like what you do. Thats wrong. Do not follow it young man.
      Not sure why you hate bangalore so much. Your team wins and you are happy that’s fine. But to belittle other and taunt others shows bad upbringing. You just are not able to accept anyone contradicting you. Grow up 🙂

      You saw what Jon just said. Nobody believes you.
      World is big. To confine your intellect to one city, one langauge and one religion is no answer. I have lived in multiple cities. Both in India and US. There is more in life than IPL, CSK, RCB , Chennai , Bangalore etc. Not sure any of things makes a difference to you. Be tolerant and do not taunt people. Yes! I guess we can conclude with this 🙂

  16. Guys..sorry for dragging this topic…i cant stop laughing..somebody stopmeeee…OMG..pls do not go anywhere near to an RCB fan! CSK players and fans must be very cautious on Wednesday! 😛

    “Shame on you. Absolute cheapness to the core.Complete sadistic delight. Archive can show your true face..Tell me man..”

  17. Just returned back from a trip to nagapattinam… Humidity was killing.. especially with 8 – 10 hr power cuts a day. Heat was not bad.. around 40 – 42.. Heard a lot of stories from locals about the tsunami and the 1977 cyclone.. made me wonder??????

  18. BBC is forecasting 43-44 for next 4 days….If this is the case, this would be the strongest summer spell I have seen in my 3 decades in this city – beating 2003.

  19. SW if reaches kerela by 30th may would most probably cover peninsular India as per the schedule date. The trouble starts later in june. Not sure whether the 3rd and 4th wave would be strong enough.

  20. “Severe change in upper level winds over s.peninsular india causing the monsoon to delay in bay ” said by an expert…..i wish,it shld delay further… wen nem is delaying by 2 weeks,for d past 4 years, y swm shld knock at time??

  21. Andhra heating up instead of NW india… temps of 48 degrees recorded in Kothagudem in AP.. it is going to get hotter over the next week as well..

  22. Places around the mines near kothagudem recorded even higher temps at around 50 degrees, If temperatures continue to rise, the mines will be shut down

  23. Its clear warm day in bangalore. Approximately 7 to 10 days left for glorious SW to start. As of now very humid in costal belt of mangalore , udupi and Kannur.

    • I am noticed over the years final 10 to 14 days befor SW monsoon starts climate gets very humid and warm in west coast. From mumbai to trivandrum its the same story.

      • I have noticed over the years final 10 to 14 days befor SW monsoon starts climate gets very humid and warm in west coast. From mumbai to trivandrum its the same story.

    • its been unbearably hot. Today there is a light layer of clouds. Must find my sweater 😛 But then these clouds promise nothing but a humid day which will make it worse, as if thats even possible.

  24. Welcome back Jaswanth..the video was amazing..atlast some1 has managed to record a hailstorm in Chennai :-)…Sel always used to talk about hailstorms in his area but he never provides us with videos or atleast photos 😦

  25. Definite changed in the upper air wind patterns over bangalore, although there has been no sign of the low, quick moving clouds from the west and strong winds for the last week or so but it should start picking up from friday onwards over bangalore… Arabian sea branch looks very weak and should take another weak to strengthen.

  26. 2012’s hottest day is today..atleast until date..42.3c..do the next few days want to break this record?

  27. @dash,video was uploaded on 20th, so might be the storm in the suburbs which hit on 17th or 18th.We missed it 😦

  28. I also remember the storm on Sept 9 2011.It had small hail, but I couldn’t record because it was at 6pm and very dark with the microburst.It gave 30mm in 15 mins

  29. rain has forgotten chennai or wat? not even a sign of rainfall activity! worst summer i have ever seen in my lifetime! 😦 chennai is forbidden from rains! 😦 hopefully we have a good swm from june!

  30. Sea breeze will be subdued for sometime because of incoming SWM.
    Usually, during the first week of June, even surface winds are southwesterly.

    Although a rain shower is possible during SWM onset, the heatwave is likely to last.

  31. SW yet to set in our southern coast of Srilanka. But its very close.
    Weather bulletin from Srilanka:
    WEATHER FORECAST FOR 25th MAY 2012

    (Issued at 12.00 noon on 24th May 2012)

    Active zone associated with South-West monsoon (Monsoon Trough) lies just South of Sri Lanka, affective the weather over Southern part of the country.

    Showers or thundershowers with southwesterly winds will occur over Western and Sabaragamuwa provinces and in the Galle and Matara districts.

    WEbsite : http://www.meteo.gov.lk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=46&Itemid=73&lang=en

    • Sudarshan Madhavan (cloud expert) has arrived at the scene at the right time…get ur terrace ready to broadcast cloud-by-cloud commentary on rolling, cone, shelf, window, door clouds, etc. 😀 ..lets hope rains return to Chennai in June..

      Considering the heat we have experienced, we deserve a hailstorm atleast this year…Not just in temp., “We Chennaites” are gonna rock with rains also..! 😀

      • i think the heat is making you delirious 😀

        Fat chance of rocking with rains in June. The rest of the country will slide down to low 30s and Chennai will still be up there rocking the Max temps. with occasional rare evening with heavy rain

        But then again, I hope you are right 😉

      • More heat..More expectations..More Joy! 😀

        Occasional evening heavy rain…hmmm..that itself will give us a week’s rain of some other neighbouring cities :mrgreen:

      • True, wondering if the sun actually set yesterday, since there was literally no difference. Meena recorded 33 deg as the night temperature. No doubt this can happen only in Chennai.

        Unless it rains, this horrendous conditions would continue seamlessly.

  32. Dear All,

    the satellite picture continues to reveal strong cloud mass just near
    chennai coast in south and south central bay of bengal. will it develop in to an useful weather system in the form of low pressure?

  33. Finally, after 2 days of overcast, stagnant weather, fast moving clouds from west are back in bangalore..

  34. Easily feels like the hottest day this season. It maybe cloudy but no signs of rain – so we will have to sweat out another night. This stupid “sea breeze” does nothing – its better to put your hopes on the trickle down effect of SWM – even the breeze from the west is cooler. No choice but to hope and wait for SWM and endure this until that arrives for the occasional, sporadic evening relief 😛

      • There were atleast one or two bunks opened with petrol for 2 wheelers in the morning..along with some shell bunks..but now everything has been closed citing no stock…

  35. Walked from TVS to close to Ethiraj college at noon today. Was not all that bad.

    Is it that my body has got used to the “new normal” of this hot summer!

  36. shankarkiran20, get ready,, Bangalore’s monsoon days are about to start. tomorrow is expected to bring those fast moving clouds with occasional sprinkles

  37. Extremely hot and humid weather in chennai.I just came back from cochin where the weather is humid but not that hot

  38. I just hope that Chennai gets lots of thunder storms this season which is the start of south-west monsoon
