    there is nothing in winning the contest by predicting low values…
    though everyone knows what can be expected maximum, some predict high values hoping that some kind of magic will help, some predicts low, hoping that pessimistic values give more rains to chennai rather than winning the contest

  2. All of you missed the midnight squall yesterday.The intensity of the rain and the winds have made me contented.We have a lot more in store.
    Bloody brilliant it was.

  3. After 3 to 4 disturbance,Current system in s.ind ocean managed to intensify as the uL ac developed near the center.. the conditions turning favourable gradually ..

  4. The influence of this system will throw up bubble TS today I think.The convection is highly constant near the coast and this will add a few mm’s.

  5. Karthik, Here is an example of banding pattern in cyclones.Center there is an eyewall which has the maximum ferocity,to the west and to the east there are banded clouds.These banded clouds are the inflow to the low pressure, as inflow gets violent in cyclones intense convection forms in the center and they later develop an eye and eyewall.

  6. These are not just Dots.They are maturing thunderstorms.Not as good as yesterday but these seem like they are just popping all over the place.

  7. Storms are moving faster than expected.They may not merge into one big mass.
    PPI radar says this is just the start of many to come.

  8. Looks like they won’t organise themselves.It’s fine.They are high intensity compartments in each of em’.
    Around the 90 km mark,now.

  9. The Ts phenomenon is in action.It wants to keep growing.Storms are spreading across the latitude.We will get the heaviest rains.
    The storm is growing a huge tail..

  10. After watching the animation time and again,I think it’s safe to say they are aligned toward us for sure.
    A few front line storms have matured too quickly.The larger,more resistant ones will,however,stay.

  11. The circulation is pulling in all the cloud mass from East and Central bay.I think we are in for continuous rains at least for 1.5 to 2 days.

  12. This band is also developing into a squall.Wow.
    And 12 noon was the ETA.Doesn’t matter if we are behind schedule for a few minutes.
    What matters are the rains.

    • The storms are aligned towards us.We will get the brunt.HPA exist above our latitude.Even if it’s a supercell,it has to come to us only.

      • Okay.. If you are confident and we do get rains then its fine.. but radar shows consistent west movement which would mean we will miss out on these rains.

  13. S.AP ruled out from the equation.
    Storms are taking a strategic timeout at about 90 km.
    A lot more storms are forming and intensifying.

  14. Why are you guys being negative when clouds are in the radar!?
    We were like this the whole of November.It ended very well for us.

    Let’s not make the same mistake this month.

  15. Arun was there in chennai for 20 days.. Not even a single drop of rain i enjoyed… Now back to Bangalore ! 😦 … Any chances of rain in Bangalore ? haven’t got time to look in to the models …

  16. First wave of rain bands are stolen by S. AP in a broad day light robbery, Hope some clouds escpped from them and poured in catchmnet areas.

    We need Police escort immediately!

  17. Low,More it tracks west, the cloud direction wil also increase the westerly movement… Now The circulation has weaknend n turned into spiral shape , so the rain clouds 4m east enters s.ap-n.tn wil recurve sw ,,. So Nw interior tn places arakkonam,tiruttani, vellore wil be getting huge fig wen the storms recurves 4m s.ap… if it recurves bfore hitting the coast, chennai wil get very huge figures… Wat a series of storms following 1 another… It is carrying more than 15cm rain.

  19. Vinod anna says we will get 10 cm by tomorrow morning.
