      My Prediction for 22-09-2013

      Temperature Nungambakkam Max : 34.5 deg Celsius

      Meenambakkam Max : 34.6 deg Celsius

      Rainfall : Nungambakkam : 15 MM

      Meenambakkam : 0 MM

      Pls update this in todays contest in your free time

  8. 3rd best septemeber for chennai from the year 2000 in terms of rainfall

    2013 – 233.9m mm(as per kea site)
    2004 – 241
    2011 – 286

  9. All these storms will just dissipate in the next few radar images unless a big one forms, a multicell. These single cells are of no use

  10. September rainfall

    2013 – 234.2
    ATR – 314.5 (1996)

    What we can break
    2004 – 246.5
    2011 – 286.2

    We need a miracle
    1996 – 314.5

    We have 8 days left in September including today according to IMD scale in which rainfall for September ends at 8:30 am on 30th. Can we break the all time record??

  11. These storms will dissipate in minutes. Even though there is good uplift, there is not much energy today. We need multicell storms, not single cell ones. Even the multicell storm from red hills is dissipating

  12. @Rame

    Thanks for the info! Btw, no, i didn’t attend. I have lots to study, just took a 10 minutes break. Will be going back now

  20. Vagaries forecast for next 4 days :
    Posted Sunday Evening (22nd):

    1. BB-13, persisting over MP, likely to weaken on Monday 23rd into an UAC and move West.

    Monday 23rd:
    Rains due to UAC over Eastern Gujarat and adjoining Saurashtra Peninsula. Rainfall expected in Ahmadabad also. Rainfall by evening extends to North Konkan.
    Places to watch for Heavy rains: Surat Region. Surat region getting heavy overnight rains on Sunday night/Monday morning (35-40 mms). Adjoining coastal region of Gujarat also for heavy rains.

    Mumbai: Cloudy, with thunder clouds developing by afternoon/evening. Heavy Showers in many parts of city. Rain amounts ranging from 15 – 25 mms in different areas.
    Outer townships, specially the eastern towns, get heavy thunder showers.
    Pune: Getting cloudy and thundery by evening. Showers in parts of city.

    Delhi NCR: Partly cloudy, and getting warmer.
    Chennai: A shower can “pop up” in some areas by evening. Very regional and localised.

    Tuesday 24th:
    A trough extends from the UAC outhwards upto the Maharashtra coast. As the trough forms, a high pressure area tries to establish itself over NW India. This was dislodged by BB-13 earlier.
    Hence, would expect rains in parts of Saurashtra and also along the East Gujarat coast and North Konkan.Very light showers (or cloudy conditions) on Tuesday evening or night in Delhi NCR, Ghaziabad and Meerut regions.
    Places to watch for heavy rains: Southern Saurashtra Coast.

    Mumbai: Partly cloudy and sunny intervals. Thundery developments drifting over city from east. Around 10 mms possible
    Outer townships expected to receive showers by evening.
    Pune: Thunder shower likely in some parts by evening.

    Delhi NCR: Cloudy and stuffy by night. Day time around 38c. Some light showers expected in the night.
    Kolkata can expect a thunder shower on Monday and Tuesday.
    Chennai: Partly cloudy and very warm day.

    Wednesday 25th:
    The high pressure forms a ridge along Central India and adjoining NW India. The SWM can be said to withdraw from remaining North India upto Western MP on Wednesday. Appropriate announcement will be made on Vagaries on Wednesday.

    Wednesday, rainfall persisting and decreasing in the Saurashtra Peninsula.
    Probably Heavy rainfall in some parts of Rajkot, Gondal and Amreli regions.

    Mumbai: Partly cloudy. Thunder clouds over eastern sky. Showers likely in some parts of city..Rains decreasing.
    Outer townships will also get some showers in some towns. Sky clearing late night.
    Chennai: cloudy day with showers increasing in frequency by afternoon/evening. Upto 10-12 mms in various parts of city. Rains also possible of same frequency on Thursday.

    Thursday 26th:
    With no major reason to precipitate, the sub-continent will have some light scattered showers in the Southern Peninsula.Rainfall increasing slightly in Odisha after Thursday for next 2 days.

    Mumbai: Partly cloudy morning and warm. Misty and foggy in the morning.
    Outer townships can experience morning fog.
