  3. Strong Western disturbance warning from IMD

    Meteorological analysis of current observations, satellite products and Numerical
    Weather Prediction models output suggest that weather of Northwest, Central, East
    and Peninsular India would be affected with an approaching strong WD and its
    interaction with Easterly wave. The amplitude of the middle tropospheric (5-6 kms
    above mean level) westerly trough associated with WD would deepen upto 15° N as it
    approach Indian region. The induced low pressure area/ cyclonic circulation would
    form over south Rajasthan and adjoining Gujarat, which is also much south to the
    normal position.
    This WD would also have its vertical extension from surface to upper troposphere
    (10-12 kms above mean level) but unlike the recent WD during 4-6 February, It would
    also interact with the amplified easterly wave. This would result in mixing of two
    different air masses (tropical and extra tropical) over Central India and neighbourhood.
    There would be incursion of moisture from Arabian Sea but very high moist air
    incursion would take place from Bay of Bengal. In addition, Sub-Tropical Westerly Jet
    Stream would also shift south of its normal position.
    This meteorological situation (lower level convergence, upper level divergence,
    mixing of two different air masses, moist air incursion, confluence of winds, southward
    position of Sub-Tropical Westerly Jet Stream etc.) and accentuated convection is very
    conducive for development of high thermo-dynamic instability in the atmosphere. It
    would cause large scale thunderstorm activity over many parts of the country

    • அரபிக்கடலில் குறைந்த காற்றழுத்தம்: குமரி மாவட்டத்தில் விடிய விடிய மழை

      தமிழ்நாட்டில் கடந்த ஜனவரி முதல் வறண்ட வானிலை நிலவி வருகிறது. இரவில் குளிர்க்காற்றும், பகலில் கடும் வெயிலும் அடித்தது. நேற்று இந்நிலை திடீரென மாறியது. தமிழகத்தில் அரபிக்கடல் பகுதியில் வளிமண்டல மேல் அடுக்கில் காற்று சுழற்சி உருவாகி வருவதாகவும், அது வலுவடையும்போது தென் மாவட்டங்களில் மழை பெய்ய வாய்ப்பு இருப்பதாகவும் வானிலை ஆய்வு மையம் தெரிவித்தது.


  14. Heavy Rains are Moving from South and South West Direction

    Places like Chengelpet, Mahabhalipuram, Muttukadu all getting very heavy rains. The Thunder cells are moving towards South Chennai. Rains may start any time in Shollinganallur, Kelambakkam, Tambaram, Pallavaram and other South Chennai places.

    Weird direction. The TS directions is from South
