  1. Today’s weather is turning out to be partly cloudy . The visibility is going to be around 10 km and an atmospheric pressure of 1003 mb . The daytime temperature is going to reach 35 °c and the temperature is going to dip to 29 °c at night. We expect around 2.1 mm of precipitation to fall and cloud covering 30% of the sky, the humidity will be around 60%.

  2. Bangalore also lies in the lee ward – Rainshadow region , yet it receives good rains during the southwest Monsoon. But why does chennai not receive good rains ?

  3. Arabian disturbance getting pulled into the monsoon flow. As shear is expected to increase due to progression of monsoon as a result the system wont develop.

  6. Aruns1411 is back to Bangalore… From hot and humid weather to chill weather. Yesterday, it was raining heavily and the night temperature went to 19C.. Was finding it difficult as got used to Chennai heat of 35+ .. GFS looks good for Bangalore for next 1 week. Wet weather ahead.

  7. Heavy weights in Tamil Nadu rocking……..

    No 1 wettest Place Chinna Kallar – 60 mm
    No 2 wettest Place Devala – 80 mm
    No 3 wettest Place Sholayar – 63 mm
    No 4 wettest Place Upper Kodayar – 56 mm
    No 7 wettest Place Valparai – 40 mm
    No 10 wettest Place Upper Bhavani – 91 mm

  8. Yes Kea is correct if we calculate for 20 months. Annual average rainfall for chennai is 140cm as per imd. So for 20 months it is 2330mm.

    • Mr. Ehsan All the best for the first ever bloggers meet. Because of tight workschedule I don’t have time otherwise I would’ve requested you to include my name. The meeting will be much informative if Bhaskaran sir,Ssuresh sir,vinodh,Jon and selvan join the meet.
      Any way they may come in the future meetings and I hope I have a chance to meet them.

  9. Rainfall average really doesn’t matter much. It is just the average annual rainfall for the past 30 years. The rainfall in chennai will vary from 100 to 200cm + every year. We can only compare the rainfall with the average,other than that,there is not much use

  10. There is an area of scattered convection in the Arabian Sea, centered to the east of Oman with a weak low-level circulation. Conditions are marginal for development as upper-level winds are expected to prevent development over the next few days. As a result, any development of this feature wil occur slowly through the week

  11. Tomorrow Chennai weather is turning out to be light rain shower and an atmospheric pressure of 1005 mb . The daytime temperature is going to reach 35 °c and the temperature is going to dip to 30 °c at night. Precipitation around 1.7 to 5 mm in some areas and cloud covering 54% of the sky, the humidity will be around 59%

  12. a small lull in rainfall over the west coast for the next 3 – 4 days as monsoon winds strengthen over the arabian sea. good rainfall will start again from 7th

  13. Kea/jupi..I will go to Erode to bring back family.however since meet is on Sat evng,Ihave option of attending meet and go in sat night. I will confirm on friday incase attendee count is less than 25. Also my home minister approval is sought……………………

  21. The system in Arabian sea is intensifying,high pressure building above the system which would increase the outflow and shear remains somewhat favorable.Models are maintaining this system to be a weak feature but by seeing the current development ,there is a possibility of depression forming over that area if the shear could hold up for next 12 – 24 hours.

  22. Hr 649, I did not see EPIC.I heard from my friends that the animation of the movie is on par with Disney or Disney Pixar movies.Overall the movie is worth a watch.It’s somewhere between above average and good.

  23. Kea, will try to come..and reveal my identity 😀

    You must play this at the background when i enter.. :mrgreen:

    Yaar endru purigiratha
    Ivan thee endru therigiratha
    Thadaigalai vendre sarithiram padaithavan
    Nyabagam varugiratha…

    Dashman Dashman Dashman…
    ….
    ….

  24. Jon,

    Just imagine..Jupi playing Piano and Kea dancing on that day in a party setup…

    thenmadurai vaigai nadhi
    dhinam paadum thamizh paatu
    thaeygindradhu….
    thaeygindradhu pon maalai nila
    thaeyaadhadhu nam aasai nila
    idhu vaanam poalae vaazhum paasam….
    thenmadurai….

    Gifts for all at the end
    Photos/Videos
    TOI/Hindu coverage

    Lets give a tough fight to Indiblogger meets 😈

  26. I WISH JAYLALITHA AMMA COMES STRONG WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS
    FOR EACH FLAT OR APARTMENT BUILD THEY SHOULD PLANT A TREE THAT WAY OUR CHENNAI WILL BECOME MORE GREENER …. EACH TIME A FLAT OR APARTMENT LOT OF TREES ARE DESTROYED SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE OTHERWISE BEGGING FOR WATER WILL CONTINUE

    • Well said !!! Actually in her previous tenure she had made a rule that every house should be rain water harvested!!! I am proud of those who followed that correctly (Atleast near to wat govt said )… But in the other side there are people Who thinks themselves as very clever , they just dropped the PVC pipes Straight from there terrace directly into the ground. Few gone to the Extreme they inserted the same PVC pipes from terrace Directly into the Drainage.

      Moral :

      Yennathan govt sattam pottu maram vakka sonnalum …. Makkalukku manasu irrukanum thats it ….

  27. I am afraid the bookies will spoil this one too. already i have lost my interest in cricket. here after i wont watch cricket at all. and in the future the police will have to track down imd employees who changes monsoon onset data and rain fall data as per bookies convenient will be arrested and charged. what the hell is going on? why these stupid bookies always playing with our passion. earlier cricket and monsoon now. common you morons(bookies) give us a break and get lost. >:-( :O

  28. Partha bro, tat wont make a big impact on NEM.. Our nem rain is purely based on cyclone disturbances..2 or 3 cycles of mjo would trigger 5 to 6 systems in bay… Tat would be More than enough provided shear doesnt play spoilsport …

  29. Arabian sea system has shown some good organization for past few hours under favorable shear.It looks more like a depression or close to it .The system is moving towards Oman coast.No models is developing this system and it maintains as a weak feature.System is very close to land and there is also dry air close by it.

  30. Huge thunderstorms in the sea. The storms to the NNE might hit by morning if they don’t dissipate

  31. APCC SST BASED MME MODEL LONG RANGE FORECAST FOR OCT-NOV IS OUT …SHOWS VERY POOR MONSOON FOR TN WITH BELOW AVERAGE RAIN FOR ENTIRE S.PENINSULAR REGION….. let them alarm..we all knw tat it wont turn into reality…
