  3. Besant Nagar got battered 2 times yesterday..once between 4.30pm and 5.15pm yesterday evening and the next between 12.30am early morning until 1.15am..2 very sharp spells ..easily totaling 30-40mm..I saw the tiny red spot on both the occasions in the radar..might have been passing thru Besant Nagar as locations around bngr were rather dry..

  4. Btw whatever is the october’s raibfall average….atleast 5cm of it in coastal Tn,and 10 cm of ir for interior tn is attributed from SWM….this happens….SWM which slowly starts picking up in Tn fron aug 15…attains peak around late sepember and continues invariably into oct every year…

    • Whatever may be the rainfall recorded, as far as chennai concerned, from June 1 to Sep 30 – Nung recorded 408MM, (def 34MM) and AP recorded 508MM which is excess.

      BNG 331MM (Def 160MM) approx.

    @partha sir,only 50 mm band is allowed,so please change.

  11. Wat the hell…the last day of september has produced the heaviest rainfall in the peninsula as expected…..MAsulipatnam 17cm,ongole 13cm…CHengalpet 9cm ….ambur 7cm!!!…..this will be counted as oct rainfall and thats y i say 20-50 percent(depending upon whether its coastal or interior)….of oct rains can be attributed to SWM!

  12. A bigger SWM system was in 2005 september….it produced like 40-50cm in day in coastal andhra….are we gonna see a 2005 like NEM?……the last 2 150cm+ NEM was in 1997 and 2005….i was 8 years after 97….and now its 7 years since a 150cm+ NEM…….BTW chennai was the only place to get tstorms where the whole peninsula was dry….n chennai is unlucky now…..tbm missed both(except for 1cm yestrday)

  13. i was kidding just for fun..as said earlier it will be on 14th oct..btw,mjo forecast map has been updated n i hav never seen a mjo map lik tis….omg,worst flood alert for entire tn

  14. Again a miss !! Tis time its 50kms north of chennai.. Only huge cloud formation could shower Us, If not we got to be lucky..

    • tat may be lil higher.. I think the settling period of the NEM or the transition period from SW to NEM wouldn’t pour much..

  15. NEM may begin by 16th Oct… but after a 10 hiatus a system is likely to form near cape around 27th Oct… like last year it heads towards to YEMEN…
    Watch out for this, this may spoil our NEM… Chennai receives most of its rainfall bwn oct 15 – Nov 15….
