  1. 1 disturbing fact hope its not true. 2000, 2003 and 2007 January’s ended with zero rainfall and NEM failure.

    Last Jan and Feb zero rain was in 2003 and it coincided with a disastrous NEM

  2. guys, amidst all teh hype regarding Phoenix market city, did u notice that Form Vijaya mall in vadapalani is also set to open in a few weeks and its going to have the 2nd biggest IMAX Screen in India!! 😀 😀

  3. Third Wettest belt in India and it has one of the wettest place in world known as Walakkad

    Between 1990 to 2006 (12 years rainfall data are available) of which Walakkad has crossed 9000 mm mark 5 times, of which it has crossed 10000 mm once.

    Excluding Cherrapunji and Mawsynaram, Only Amagaon in Karnataka has better record than Walakkad and has crossed 10000 mm mark twice in last 6 years.

    Even Agumbe, Hulikal gets less rainfall than Walakkad.

  4. Visited Phoenix on sunday. Car Parking is almost full around 4 pm. (No parking fees started yet). Big crowd out there. Few shops yet to open. Not a bad start. Looks decent and neat. Really crowd puller for Velachery. Traffic congestion is bad ( U turn to Velachery is prohibited near Ramkay TVS). Better than EA .

    • Feb 22nd. is still 25 days away. There is no accurate forecast available for such a long period.

      If I am a betting man I would say 5 days of glorious sunshine with a maximum of around 32 and zero % chance of rain.

  5. Thank you for the interesting link. Urban micro-weathers affecting the jetstream is significant; controlling for rural background in the Indian context would be a tough problem, I would think.

  6. Tirupattur, Belgaum Airport , Davanagere and Chamrajnagar recorded the lowest minimum temperature of 13 degree Celsius in the plains of the region.

    Wow first time since March 2007 a Tamil Nadu plain,Tirupattur, is recording the coldest temperature in South India!!

  8. Just in: Madras High Court stays release of Vishwaroopam. Sets aside single judge’s order lifting the ban on Kamal Haasan’s movie.

    Will delete some scenes from ‘Vishwaroopam’: Kamal Haasan

  9. CHENNAI: Kamal Haasan on Wednesday agreed to delete some objectionable scenes from his controversial film ‘Vishwaroopam’. The actor-director said the issue had been settled amicably.

    But, soon after his statement on a compromise with Muslim leaders, the Madras high court on Wednesday set aside a single judge order staying the government’s prohibitory orders on film ‘Vishwaroopam’. As a result, theatres cannot screen the film anywhere in Tamil Nadu
