  1. I think IMD will not have the liberty to talk as we discuss here. They will have lot considerations / limitations – before making a news conference. And they have to counter all those silly questions obviously ūüôā

  2. YuvarajThulasiDass Pradstorm sailudavey yes, according to their IMD site itself, If winds r above 220 km/hr it is a super cyclone.But not accepting.

  3. Main reason why IMD is not saying it’s a Super Cyclone is they don’t want ppl to panic. I am sure state govt is aware of the potential power of this Super cyclone, but will not say it’s a Super Cyclone.

  4. keaweather¬† i rather feel they were cocky in saying its a very severe cyclone too early… and their track record, pride prevents them from correcting themselves

    Such a shame when American Meteorologists also say INdian GOVT is Under Estimating it

  5. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO SLIGHTLY INTENSIFY TO A PEAK OF 145 KNOTS OVER THE NEXT
    12 HOURS AS FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS PERSIST, ALTHOUGH THE
    POSSIBILITY OF ANOTHER ERC MAY HAMPER ANY FURTHER INTENSIFICATION.
    AFTER TAU 12, A GENERAL WEAKENING TREND IS EXPECTED AS LAND
    INTERACTION BEGINS TO ERODE THE SYSTEM WITH MORE RAPID EROSION AFTER
    LANDFALL,

    What is the difference between 220 km/hr  (222 km/hr is called super cyclone).  Imd is maintaining it will not cross 220 km/hr but have increased the gusts to 240 km/hr. 
    They are smart. Even if the wind crosses 222 km/hr. They will say it is only gusts. 

     All models are showing pressure close to 920 mb. IMD is telling it as 936 mb.

    If it is 222 km

    Don’t see where it has weakened

  12. The storm moving WWN and could end up crossing South of Icchapuram, going by the IMD IR images over the last few hours

  13. BobSwaggerty¬†sailudavey¬†Sud T.nagar¬†ashwinv¬† what u r seeing is the adt version 8.1.4..use the later version for more accurate readins…pressure is increasing and rpd weak flag is showing a status of “flg” than off

  14. BobSwaggerty¬†…use this link:-¬†http://tropic.ssec.wisc.edu/real-time/adt/02B-list.txt
