  2. @hr649… IMD was spot on with the track of this system… They have now mentioned that fairly Widespread rainfall will start over southern peninsula from 10. I am sure north east winds will start around then…

  3. Rainfall in AP :-

    Narsapur ( West Godavari dist.) – 306
    Yelamanchili ( Vizag dist ) – 194
    Maruteru( west Godavari dist.) – 193

    Sriharikota – 49

  4. A evening TS in NEM that too in november month is some what rare and special.. these TS will be strong than the SWM TS..

    Whether it happens before….any idea of year ?

  5. look at the latest satellite image now.. Thick dense clouds over North coastal AP.. I have a feeling that these clouds will move south and aproach the chennai coast

  6. This is Chennai speciality. Misses out when whole TN gets rains/gets less compared to others. But when there is no rain in TN, chennai gets hit. 😀

  7. guys dont u see the outer fringes of Nilam remnants now touching chennai.. I have seen this happen afew years back when a cyclone when almost up to vizag.. later the system weakened and clouds dispersed and started to head towards chennai…

    • yes, nilam outer bands now over chennai area. That’s why we are getting thunderstorms. Hope it remains ‘practically stationary’ as IMD says 😆 I don’t think it can actually make it to chennai,but you can never be correct especially with the track of a cyclone 😉

  8. i know forecasts indicate north east movement of this system.. But i dunno for whatever reasons inside i still feel the system is coming down towards see.. lets wait and watch the next 12 hours .. 🙂

  9. Rainfall in AP :-

    Narsapur ( West Godavari dist.) – 314

      • Athan,sir.It is supposed to be our monsoon vera.Our Drinking water supplies would have been in excess and we would have no problem for the next year. 😦

  14. There’s something about Andhra that attracts a lot of rain to it.I’m not sure what.Maybe it’s geographical position extending out from the slant or whatever.It sure does have thing for heavy,flooding rains.

  16. only two things are possible in andhra.
    if it rains it will be most probably heavy and will be flooding.
    if it does not rain,it will be extremely horrible with scorching sun making our entire body sweat and even nights will be extremely uncomfortable which force us to switch on continuously.
    u know chennai is far better than vijayawada.thats why i feel cool even if i come to chennai.i can say that those people who can live in andhra and tamilnadu can stay anywhere in this world.

    • I sincerely empathise with you.I’ve heard many of my A.P friends say this.Chennai maintains a nice maritime climate while that doesn’t seem to influence A.P much.

      • AP is giving krishna water to chennai through telugu ganga project and due to cyclone nilam the telugu ganga canal that supplies krishna water to chennai is also flooded due to cyclone nilam.this is one major source and rain harvesting is another great source and these two can always save chennai.

  17. Weather Station Price (Need info is this true ???)

    Oregon Scientific, Lacrosse, Acu-rite, Honeywell, Fine Offset/Ambient
    Slower wind updates, questionable accuracy and reliability, Most likely made in China.

    Davis’s Vantage Vue
    Best station for the money. Highly accurate, high quality parts which are replacable, made in the USA,
    Only drawback is the sensor is an all in one unit which makes installation easy but means rain or wind aren’t going to be at ideal height for best accuracy.

    Davis’s Vantage Pro2, Rainwise MK-III-RTN
    Vantage Pro2 is the most popular choice. It’s sensor unit is flexible to most installation situations. This allows the anemometer to be up high (NWS standard 33 Ft 10m) but the rainfall temperature and humidity to be lower (NWS standard 2ft-5ft 0.7-2m). You can also add things like Solar and UV sensors.
    Rainwise which is at the top of the range has the best quality construction and componets and also some of the best accuracy. However the MK-III-RTN has no rain gauge.

    Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus with 24Hr fan aspirated radiation sheild, Rainwise, Texas Weather instruments, Weather Hawk, Maximum inst.
    Best quality instruments with the best accuracy. These are the type used by colleges and in rough conditions where “lower” stations would fall apart.

  18. Ehsan’s system (the reply he gave me when i requested to setup a AWS)

    To set up a weather station first you need to invest in a good weather station. In my opinion you should look no further than the Davis range of Professional weather stations. The link is below,


    There are different kinds of Vantage Pro range of stations there and basically you need to decide if you want a wired or wireless. I would recommend a wireless.

    Wireless costs $400 and wired costs around $324. You might need a tripod to moint which costs around $50 and you need the Virtual weather station software(internet edition), which costs $100. You need a data logger serial port version. THere is a software glitch with the USB model. I had to exchange to a serial cable.
    You need a desktop computer with a serial port. You need to be careful here, not all computers have this. Serial port is a bit old technology. I would not recommend a USB version.
    You would need a website to host and a internet connection and you are all set.

    THe total cost of the weather station and software comes out to $550. But these peopledo not ship overseas. There is a distributor in Delhi and they rip you off. THey charge almost double due to duty and freight.

  19. Recently found this picture.Just look at it.Wonder what the captain must have said.
    “Everyone,we are flying right into the apocalypse.Over and out”.

  20. Am sure,ther wil be a cyclone in tis dec also.. By considering the last three december, frequency and intensity of the disturbance is in increasing trend., 2009- depression ..2010-DD 2011 : VSCS THANE ….

  21. The East Godavari district is witnessing heavy rains for the last three days in the wake of cyclone ‘Nilam’ which has affected rail, bus and air traffic and power supply in several parts of the district.

    Rains continued for the fourth day on Sunday also, with the influence of stor

  22. vanradhakrishna in the month of septemper itself i thought this is going to be a nightmare for andhra this year. and informed the same in kea blog. one more thing This is just the begining and already 77,000 hectare crop is lost.

    • the situation here in andhra is very bad.water every where.great loss of paddy and cotton crop.
      RIDGE LINE AT 200 hPa PASSES THROUGH LATITUDE 14°N OVER THE REGION.so any cyclone till onset of summer will make landfall in tamilnadu only.

  23. சென்னை: நிலம் புயலால் சென்னை மாநகரமே பெரும் பீதியில் இருந்தபோது ஒரே ஒரு குரூப் மட்டும் உற்சாகமாகவும், சந்தோஷமாகவும் இருந்துள்ளது. அவர்கள் வேறு யாருமல்ல, இயக்குநர் மணிரத்தினம், கேமராமேன் ராஜீவ் மேனன் ஆகியோர் அடங்கிய கடல் படக் குழுவினர்.

    நிலம் புயலால் ஏற்பட்ட கடல் கொந்தளிப்பையும், கடல் சீற்றத்தையும், பலத்த சூறாவளிக் காற்றையும் இவர்கள் படம் பிடித்துள்ளனர் தங்களது படல் படத்துக்காக.

    நிலம் புயல் தமிழக கடற்கரைப் பகுதியைத் தாக்கி கரையைக் கடந்த சமயத்தில் மணிரத்தினம், ராஜீவ்மேனன் உள்ளிட்டோர் ராயபுரம், காசிமேடு ஆகிய பகுதிகளில் முகாமிட்டிருந்தனர். புயலின் கோரக் காட்சிகளை தத்ரூபமாக படம் பிடிப்பதே இவர்களது நோக்கம். இருப்பினும் புயல் இவர்கள் இருந்த பக்கம் வராமல் மகாபலிபுரத்தோடு நின்று விட்டது. இருப்பினும் கடல் கொந்தளிப்பையும், சீற்றத்தையும், சூறைக் காற்றையும் இவர்கள் படம் பிடித்துள்ளனர்.

    இந்த சமாச்சாரத்தை இப்படத்தில் வில்லனாக நடிக்கும் அரவிந்த் சாமி தனது டிவிட்டர் பக்கத்தில் குறிப்பிட்டுள்ளார். புயல் சீற்றத்துக்கு மத்தியில் சில காட்சிகளைப் படம் பிடித்தோம். அது புதிய அனுபவமாக இருந்தது என்று கூறியுள்ளார் அரவிந்த்சாமி.

    புயல் பலருக்கு வாழ்க்கையைக் கெடுக்கிறது, சிலருக்கு வாழ்க்கையை புதுவிதமாக அனுபவிக்க சொல்கிறது…!
