  1. Kea, but few hours of good rain is not what we are getting. Only 3 thunderstorms have given rain lasting for more than 1 hour this year

    • Ehsanji,

      After all that embarassment that you had to go thru in the past one and a half month,i didn’t think u would take a random post by a blogger more seriously than what Mr.YEA Raj had to say….Pls learn the normality to prevent yourself further embarrasments,u still seems to be overhyping…nunga will never get out of the losers list this year…It may even better itslef in that list…

  5. “If you save it hourly, it will be 8,760 images for the year. If you save them once every 4 hours it will be 1,460 images for a year.”

    From this it is clear that Kea watches Tamil movies..his favourite actor is Captain Ramanaa 😀

  6. Last year at this time, there was a storm which produced 548 mm/h rain and 3 cm in 5-10 mins.There was also 45 km/h winds and hail

  7. 1.30pm to 2.30pm saw steady showers..no frills like winds ..a touch of lightning and thunder..but a workmanlike rain ..it was as if the Clouds said that we have a job to do and went ahead with full focus..like a Rahul Dravid’s knock..easily 20-25 mm at Besant Nagar.

  8. Nungambakkam 3 mm
    Meenambakkam 14 mm
    Anna Univ. 21 mm

    Nunga is only 3 mm, but i think north nunga didn’t get rainfall. My area ,Mahalingapuram could have could 7-8 mm and T.Nagar 10 mm. There were lot of puddles when I woke up at around 6:30

  9. Ehasanwould

    Lol Cola was bang today…..i would say it as the heaviest spell Anna Nagar West Today. Rainrate to be around 150 mm/hr for last 15 mins

    surely it would crossed 40 mm in Anna Nagar by now

    And as usual….Ehsan says 4 mm Cola produced it wonderful storm…

    Heading for tomorrow……cola storms knock out kea target of 4mm in seconds….!

  10. Nunga has received its august month’s rainfall in 2 rainy days this septtember within a week……as i was telling this all time,2012 ia gonna be the first normalseptember in 2 years…..and as usual i expect SWM active in TN in today’s IMD rain report…..but this is not over……rainfakk will get heacier in Tn for the days to come……swm will get active over aTn…and thats pretty normal for september

  12. Hats off to Cola, excellent prediction. Never easy to predict weather in August or September.

    it predicted 47 mm we got around 50 mm.

    And someone also teased Cola by posting that 4mm is only possible…

    Dash expecting ur comments on the post

  13. N-NE looks really dark.New storms developing in N-W but we need storms to form in NNW to get rain.Drizzling for past 2 hours

  14. Cola once again proved it…. Wat else u expect other than tis.. Perfect!! Perfect..I remember Last week,by seeing gfs model,i was telling Sep 8,9,10 luks lik NEM days….yes it happened….

  15. i have noticed it several times,storm as soon as nears the coast its getting more stronger, does it have anything to do with sea breeze??

  16. Almost all model’s extended forecast r hinting at slightly positive IOD throughout winter til jan 2013… I think tis wil favour for us … IOD -NORMAL-ABOVE CONVECTION WIL BE SEEN IN N.IND OCEAN WATERS… For the past 20 days,am keeping an eye on tis map, it clearly shows increasing trend in SST over sw ind ocean ( near madagascar) , wich is a typical feature of IOD http://expert-images.weatheronline.co.uk/daten/proficharts/en/sst/2012/09/07/basis00/sst/12_12090700_0700.gif
