  1. Today also it is the stretch south of Tambaram that is going to get the major portion of the rains. Core city might again miss out with some sample rains given for Nunga I suppose

  2. Was just seeing the 3 hour animation on the GIS maps, the storm simply ignores Chennai city, it does not cross Alandur. In fact by the time it crosses Sriperumbudhur it has already losts all of its strength

  3. Here is sp koil we did not get much rain yesterday we had two spells one around 9 pm and another at midnight. both lasted for short period only will hope the next one will last at least one hour.

    • Thought we would have a respite, with a cool wind blowing in the morning. Lets hope atleast the heat creates enough disturbance for a TS or two in the evening, otherwise its going to be a long uncomfortable weekend.

  12. When I looked at the radar yesterday, I thought KAR’s residence will surely get atleast 100 mm. Seems like it didn’t rain what the radar promised.

    In fact not even half of that.

  17. Guys, Heavy rain forecast

    29   August:

    Heavy   rainfall   would   occur   at   isolated   places  
    over   east   Madhya   Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Sub­Himalayan West Bengal & Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, 
    Assam & Meghalaya,east Uttar Pradesh and Tamilnadu.

    30   August:  
    Heavy   rainfall   would   occur   at   isolated   places   over  
    east   Madhya   Pradesh,
    Chhattisgarh, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam & Meghalaya and Tamilnadu.

    31 August: 
    Heavy rainfall would occur at isolated places over Arunachal Pradesh, 
    Assam & Meghalaya and Tamilnadu.

    • CAN WE EXPECT SOME DECENT RAINFALL OVER THE NEXT 2 ‚Äď 3 DAYS AS IMD HAVE FORECASTED HEAVY RAIN TILL 01st SEP MORNING. ?

      COASTAL DISTRICTS or INTERIOR TN . WHICH WILL GET BENEFITTED FROM THE SYSTEM ?

    • Will the system get strength and give decent rainfall or it will move westwards?

      The 2005 BIG rainfall was caused by a system which developed in Gulf of Mannar and adj. areas I think..

      Is that right ?

  18. @rame

    OMG!! You have no idea about 2005!! About 10 LPA or depressions hit Tamil Nadu that year!!! No system went to the Gulf of Mannar
