  3. Pradeep–This is what we were talking about yesterday night-

    A fresh spell of heavy rain is likely in the State as another low pressure area formed over the northwest Bay of Bengal and the adjoining areas of West Bengal and north Odisha on Monday.

    The system was with associated upper air cyclonic circulation extending up to 7.6 km above the sea level.

    Note the height–7.6km above sea leval.

    • Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, East Godavari, West Godavari, Adilabad, Karimnagar, Nizamabad, Khammam, Warangal and Nalgonda districts on high alert..

      Will there be anything for South AP and North TN??

    KEA, Meena wins again, that polldady contest can be closed, since Meena cannot be overtaken by Nunga.

  7. So far North Coastal AP did not receive heavy rains. Only East Godavari received just 7-9MM.

    There was TS in nellore last night after ours. Nellore received 22MM. Sriharikota 4MM.

  8. “KEA, Meena wins again, that polldady contest can be closed, since Meena cannot be overtaken by Nunga” – parthasri35

    Who said so? If Kitwade or some place can get 1,000 mm in 4 days. Nunga can atleast get 100 more in July. August and September is still left.

  13. Jupi–You seem to be more nervous and fidgety when it comes to NEM..I can feel the adrenalin pumping in you..Relax man..NEM will be good..Slightly more than normal..Expecting a minimum of 1000 mm without any big Cyclone..D or DD will do and bring in 1000 mm.

  15. Dash,

    IMD and many other models suggests that Wednesday & Thursday going to heavy rains.

    But Cola & Foreca says nothing.

    If it rains as per IMD, then what will you do. Will you still trust Foreca.

  18. Might have rained arnd 6-8 mm in domlur, bangalore, was v heavy for around 5 mins only and was drizzling after that..

  19. The low pressure area over northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining Gangetic West Bengal &  Odisha now lies
    over   Odisha   &   neighbourhood.   Associated   cyclonic   circulation   extends   upto   mid­tropospheric   levels   tilting
    southwestwards  with height.

    This one is shifting SW towards north coastal AP, rain expected late night.

    Also tomorrow and thursday going to be very heavy.

  20. Bangalore city AWS – 7mm till 5:30pm, Hesarghatta in NW of Bangalore – 34mm till 5:30pm. Hoping to see some good numbers from my place too….

  21. Meena made a big lead and so big gap of difference with nunga.. But Still another half remains to complete tis july..hope nunga bounce back and make the battle tougher….

  22. i just can’t believe that b’lore imd has got only 8mm…easily 30mm in north bangalore areas and hessargata aws in nw b’lore shows 34mm..watta miss

      • expecting good numbers from these places…anyways let’s see..areas from south of these places and north of imd got bulk of rains..that’s why i said it was a bad luck

      • ya expected that from our area..areas south of us got heavy rains…i was in malleswaram it was super heavy there…

  23. Nellore and pondy reaping the benefits today..Chances looking grim for us to night. From the looks of it, few areas in South Madras may get some drizzles.

  24. Climate Prediction Centre of the US National Weather Services sees possibilities for enhanced convection (cloud-building process) to continue over the Bay of Bengal during this week.

  25. Jupi,

    The MJO for next fifteen days has only RED line and Purple line. Where is the yellow line?

    Can you explain in detail that how you say that it is going to normal or excess rainfall?

  27. Super rains in Northern AP- Courtesy Low in the bay which has remained stationary without intensifying.

    Several places in the State were pounded by heavy rains for a second time within a week, even as the low- pressure area remained stationary over the northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining West Bengal without intensifying.

    Adilabad recorded 10 cm of rain, resulting in floods in numerous rivulets, tanks and streams. In the same district, Sirpur reported 8 cm, Utnoor 7 cm and Adsifabad 6 cm.

    Penn Ganga, a tributary of the Pranahita, was in high spate following torrential rains in its catchment areas lying in Maharashtra. A huge quantity of two lakh cusecs of floodwater was flowing down the Penn Ganga inundating many areas on its banks in the district.

    The pilgrim centre of Kaleswaram received a rainfall of 5 cm. In Coastal Andhra, Narapur and Machilipatnam recorded 5 cm each, Gudiwada 4 cm and Tenali 3 cm.

    Heavy to very heavy rains have been forecast for the districts of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, East Godavari, West Godavari, Krishna, Adilabad, Nizamabad, Karimnagar, Warangal and Khammam on Wednesday.

  28. Heavy rains batter Khammam

    Heavy rains battered several parts of the district particularly Velerupadu mandal, which recorded the highest rainfall of 25.4 mm in the last 24 hours, ending at 8 a.m. on Tuesday. Incessant rains since Monday night disrupted normal life and paralysed road communication at various places in the district particularly in Bhadrachalam division. People of nearly 25 villages in Wajedu mandal continued to face severe ordeal as the vehicular movement between Cheekupalli and Perur remained suspended due to inundation of a culvert across a stream at Cheekupalli. Water level in the Godavari stood just little over 28 feet at Bhadrachalam on Tuesday evening. It is likely to go up by two to three feet in the next 12 hours owing to the discharge of surplus flood waters in the projects in the catchment areas, sources said. Taliperu project in Charla mandal received steady inflows on Tuesday.

  29. Surprisingly cool weather since yesterday night..There is some chillness in the air and not the usual humid (typical Madras) air.Different to what it was yesterday morning…Any sign of things to come??

    BTW– did not use AC after a gap of 3 months yesterday night..Could easily manage..

  30. Jupi,

    As i was saying 2 days back about a system could form in West or NW pacific. There is a system equallent to Soulik.

    Vinson Kurian has said in his report.

    Also i said yesterday that Chennai will get battered today and tomorrow.

    It will happen, humidity has already touched 55%, this is not happened earlier.
