  4. Kea the 5 mm & 10 mm leeway for rains should be applicable only if some amount of rains pour don’t you think so. Because anybody can get points by predicting upto 5 mm even if it has not rained at all.

  7. The Kea site temperature is showing 32.2, this is going to be interesting, knocking people’s entries as max temperatures goes up or starts to go down when sea breeze sets in. Pretty much by 12 we would know who is the closest in terms of winners.

    Kea do you want me to keep tab of the points scored, so we could update the leaders on a regular basis

  9. PJ or anyone else, can you inform IMD ABOUT Chennai AP’s total rainfall?? It’s been incorrectly mentioned as 84 cm instead of 73 cm. It got 1 cm and instead of 74, it’s been made 84 cm in the daily weather report. Someone please inform this to them

  10. Ehsan,

    Due to request from various people, I am compiling the Total comments posted by each users in the blog.

    Only post logged in with their user-id is considered for analysis.

    So some of the old members comments of Jon, PJ, Kea and Kar 1994 will see reduction as in their posts as there was no user-id during old days.

  12. Several residents struggled all through the night to drain out water from their homes in Nelamangala town after the canal of Amanikere breached and the water gushed into their homes on Saturday night.

    More than 200 houses on M.G. Road, Gajaria layout, Anjaneyaswamy layout and other areas were flooded, and the authorities blamed incessant rains in the area for the breach. It was quite a task for the residents to safeguard their belongings even as the water-level rose.

    “We could not sleep the whole night as a few of our neighbours saw snakes and other insects in the water that entered homes,” said a resident of Janapriya apartment.

    Protect the Ozone Layer: Save Life on Earth

    Since 1995, on 16 September each year, the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer is celebrated. This date has been designated by the United Nations General Assembly in its resolution 49/114, to commemorate the signing of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.

  16. report of a possible lpa by rajesh sir:: – Some models are showing the formation of a Low in the Bay, off the Orissa coast. Models forecast the formation around the 20th of this month. Vagaries is non committal today, and reserves its view on the formation and date of formation till the proper formation parameters are clear. Proper announcement will be when and if situation warrants the formation.
    Seeing the current withdrawal position, and high pressure forming over Central India, it may possible that any system in Bay may head towards Bangledesh.

  17. What does it mean when a barometer is rising or falling?
    A barometer measures air pressure: A “rising” barometer indicates increas­ing air pressure; a “falling” barometer indicates decreasing air pressure.
    In space, there is a nearly complete vacuum so the air pressure is zero. On Earth, because there are many miles of air molecules stacked up and exerting pressure due to the force of gravity, the pressure is about 14.7 pounds per square inch at sea level.
    Pressure differences have a big effect on the weather, so if you know the current air pressure at your house, as well as the pressure trend, you are able to predict certain things about the weather. As a very loose rule, a high-pressure area will be clear, and a low-pressure area will be cloudy and rainy.
    KEA SITE Current Pressure is 998.3 hPa

  19. Nearly 6,000 people were evacuated from their villages following the eruption of Mount Sinabung in western Indonesia, an official said on Monday.

    The 2,600 m (8,530 ft) volcano in North Sumatra province erupted early on Sunday after being dormant for three years, sending thick ash into the sky with small rocks pelting neighbouring villages, said National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. He said almost 6,000 people have been evacuated and were being sheltered in seven locations. No injuries or damage was reported.

  22. Cheeka and PJ, this is where VVP lets you down. See what is shows, almost non-existent as our friend Cheeka said, but storms are moving pretty fast from WSW to ENE. See radar animation of PPZ

  23. @ susa,

    Only Pj can talk to IMD officials i think

    What can we do ?

    Sometimes they are omitting some values and sometimes they are giving wrong figures.
    These are all TYPING errors i think.

    What’s ur take on this ?

  24. Maddy am fairly sure the storms are not moving, we will have our answers in an hour’s time. There is a specific reason for looking out for wind speed at about 1.8 km altitude as of now, PJ will possibly explain this better in person when we catch up. Till then we will call our truce and agree to disagree, to lighten up we can run a daily Cheeka vs Maddy challenge on from where the storms are coming and when would they come. What say?

  25. The only other reason for why the storms could move fast is, if they are moving fast, as I have not been able to track over a longer period of time since I was out on a meeting, the speeds at 1.5 kms altitude are quite high at 15 knots an hour. PJ can you confirm the validity of my reasoning.

  26. @sksvram

    I’ll try to get it! But PJ will be able to do it much better. He is already compiling a list, but I’ll try to get it anyway 🙂

  27. Pretty strong winds from the West for the last 30 minutes or expect the storm to move towards the coast. Whether we get anything would depend on how much strength they retain. I have very little hopes
