  2. Sir RJ’s fan base growing!!! 😆

    When Sir wants to get a run, he really does make the bowler bowl a no ball!

    Ground moved a little bit to convert RP Singh’s correct stepping into a NO Ball

    Sir can get runs for the team even after getting out!

  3. Friends,

    I visited KEA house last week. I have to tell honestly, i have not visited such a big house in my life. Garden, swimming pool, roof with our AWS station.etc etc.

    Its an ideal place for out get together.

    Ehsan, you have to plan and tell a date (saturday or sunday) we will come their.

    Any expenses can be shared mutually.

  4. Hi,

    As a retired professional weather forecaster of Indian Air Force for nearly 25 years, I appreciate your efforts of taking interest in weather and weather related information. Aterall, it affects every one and almost every activity that we do.

    Keep it going.

  5. pj,i think tis might be the track… system is getting steered under the influence of the ridge northwest (hpa in madhyapradesh)of the system…. but wen the system get sheared it will track according to low level winds(700-850hpa) … tat is from w-sw… it cant go N-NE due to ridge and so tis will struggle a lot before fizzling out http://postimg.org/image/um9k6ly77/

  7. Congrats KEA.

    I am one of the person who always keep your page in one of my Firefox TAB.
    Amount of time you guys are putting in are tremendous and awesome.

  8. A system has formed 8.8 N & 96 east. about 1500 kms south east of chennai. chances for bringing some wet spell over tamil nadu from this week end. but all depends on its direction and intensity. we hope chennai get some useful summer showers.

    ss.

  9. Belated congratulations to KEA!! I was glad to see the article published in the reputed news daily yesterday. This is definitely a moment to reckon with.

  10. Congrats to Kea and all others on this blog. Chennai’s weather maybe uni-dimensional, yet so much chatter every day in the eternal hope for evasive rains!

    Talking of rains – are we still on the map for the next disturbance selvanfun mentioned?

    Easily the most uncomfortable day of the year so far. Very humid, very hot. And its just mid-April and mid-30s. Cant (dont want to) imagine how oppressive May is going to be!

  11. I like the wind direction Pie Chart..showing %ages between N,NE,E,SE..the dreaded SW,W is slowly inching its way into the charts..

  12. JTWC : AN AREA OF CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED NEAR 8.8N 96.1E, APPROXIMATELY 400 NM SOUTHWEST OF BANGKOK, THAILAND. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS AN AREA OF DISORGANIZED AND FLARING CONVECTION AROUND A BROAD LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) THAT HAS BEEN STATIONARY OVER THE CENTRAL ANDAMAN SEA. A 150300Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS BROKEN AND SHALLOW CONVECTION LOOSELY WRAPPING AROUND THE LLCC. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS A POINT-SOURCE OF DIVERGENCE IS LOCATED JUST SOUTH OF THE AREA GIVING WAY TO LOW (05-10 KNOTS) VERTICALWIND SHEAR AND FAVORABLE OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDSARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 20 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1007 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS LOW

      • I was in Cnnai last weekend 4 personal reasons..Humidity took full toll 4m me
        I sweated like anything even at 34C… Being an interior place,my district was Blazing at 40,41C but i hardly sweat…

      • @Kalaitnj90–In a way Madras(Chennai) weather has got the toxins out of your system thru perspiration..It is better to be in a city like this than any dry and hot weather like Hyd or Ahmd etc..At least the sea breeze sets in the afternoon till the month of May to keep things cooler..Of course from June onwards,the wind pattern changes and Chennai has only dry and hot winds blowing form North west direction.Hence Chennai is always unbearably hot in June and july to some extent compared to May..

      • Its what each person is used to really. People who grew up in humid weather like chennai struggle in the dry heat. But those who are acclimatised to the dry heat cannot stand the humidity. Cant really say one is better than the other.

      • @novaknole i dont know hw u people r living in t coast.. from my birth i am used to the less humid weather in t interiors..so your humidity is really uncomfortable and unbearable 4 me in all corners… i couldnt go out without a handkee… as it makes u perspire more, it takes everything out of u… even 30C wil feel like 38C.. but for us, 30C feels like 30C… So its far better for us in t interiors than what u hav in cnnai…

      • Kea, you should think of inviting us for a simple get together and to have a first hand experience of seeing how a weather station would look like..On the lighter side, try and change the direction of your weather station installed at your home ,,,..so that Nunga would record -record rainfall this SWM and NEM.

  15. Kea – why no prediction contests? From predicting NEM rain (which hardly came) we can switch to max, min temp etc. no?

    E.g. for April
    High Max temp = 41C. High Min = 29C. Number of 38C+ days = 8

    Yeah basically I am saying its going to be hell for the next 2 weeks 😀

  16. An earthquake rocked
    Delhi, NCR, Jaipur,
    Haryana, Punjab,
    Chandigarh and parts of
    North India at around
    4.19 pm on Tuesday.
    There are no reports of
    any loss of life or
    property till now.

  17. AN AREA OF CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED NEAR 10.2N 98.6E,
    APPROXIMATELY 240 NM SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF BANGKOK, THAILAND. ANIMATED
    INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A SLOWLY-CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL
    CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH IMPROVED DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING. A
    162256Z SSMIS 37 GHZ IMAGE INDICATES AN ORGANIZED SYSTEM WITH
    CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A DEFINED LLCC. SATELLITE IMAGERY
    SUPPORTS THE CURRENT POSITION AND SHOWS THAT THE SYSTEM IS MAKING
    LANDFALL OVER THE WESTERN MALAY PENINSULA. SURFACE OBSERVATIONS FROM
    PHUKET (VTSP), APPROXIMATELY 130 NM SOUTH, INDICATE WESTERLY WINDS
    SUSTAINED AT 12 TO 16 KNOTS WITH GUSTS AS HIGH AS 26 KNOTS AND SLP
    NEAR 1009 MB. ADDITIONAL OBSERVATIONS NEAR THE SYSTEM INDICATE SLP
    AS LOW AS 1006 MB. A 161524Z ASCAT PARTIAL IMAGE SHOWED ENHANCED,
    CONVERGENT WESTERLY WINDS OF 15 TO 20 KNOTS OVER THE SOUTHERN SEMI-
    CIRCLE. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE LLCC IS LOCATED
    UNDER THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS WITH GENERALLY FAVORABLE
    ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS. THE PRIMARY LIMITING FACTOR IS LAND
    INTERACTION; HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK OVER THE GULF
    OF THAILAND AND HAS POTENTIAL TO FURTHER CONSOLIDATE. MAXIMUM
    SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 20 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA
    LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1005 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR
    THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
    HOURS IS MEDIUM.

  20. I live in hebbal it got 40 mm ..thanks for your info.i was eager to know how much mm rain would be as it rained heavily here

    • my raingauge in sahakaranagar just north of ur place recorded only 12mm including the midnight drizzles.. when did it rain so heavily in hebbal to record 40mm? Bcos the rains arnd 8:30pm hardly lasted for 10-15 mins in hebbal as the whole time i was stuck in a traffic jam on hebbal flyover 🙂

  21. Mid night only drizzles???.. It was much much heavier than evening one and it lasted for 30 min or even more.. Most me rains were from night pain only here

  22. Mid night only drizzles???.. It was much much heavier than evening one and it lasted for 30 min or even more.. Most of rains were from night pain only here

    • @sidhegde…ur place is good 3 away from my place…so intensity of rains can definitely vary,,u might have got drizzles from midnight rains ..it was much heavier and even lasted long…

      • thats good 🙂 40mm would have definitely helped some extent to increase the water level in hebbal lake (the level was pretty low when i observed last week)

  23. Kea, add the link to this blog beside others in the metsite page. It shld redirect directly to this blog. I found it under home, but wat I suggested wil be better

  24. huge rain band to the east of Chennai 60 to 70 kms as per current radar, is there a chance the clouds will move west and rain here
