  1. குறள் 16:

    விசும்பின் துளிவீழின் அல்லால்மற் றாங்கே
    பசும்புல் தலைகாண்பு அரிது.

    கலைஞர் உரை:
    விண்ணிலிருந்து மழைத்துளி விழுந்தாலன்றி மண்ணில் பசும்புல் தலை காண்பது அரிதான ஒன்றாகும்.

    மு.வ உரை:
    வானத்திலிருந்து மழைத்துளி வீழ்ந்தால் அல்லாமல், உலகத்தில் ஓரறிவுயிராகிய பசும்புல்லின் தலையையும் காண முடியாது.

    சாலமன் பாப்பையா உரை:
    மேகத்திலிருந்து மழைத்துளி விழாது போனால், பசும்புல்லின் நுனியைக்கூட இங்கே காண்பது அரிதாகிவிடும்.

    பரிமேலழகர் உரை:
    விசும்பின் துளி வீழின் அல்லால் – மேகத்தின் துளி வீழின் காண்பது அல்லது; மற்று ஆங்கே பசும்புல் தலை காண்பது அரிது – வீழாதாயின் அப்பொழுதே பசும்புல்லினது தலையையும் காண்டல் அரிது. (‘விசும்பு’ ஆகு பெயர். ‘மற்று’ வினைமாற்றின்கண் வந்தது. இழிவு சிறப்பு உம்மை விகாரத்தால்தொக்கது. ஓர் அறிவு உயிரும் இல்லை என்பதாம்.).

    மணக்குடவர் உரை:
    வானின்று துளிவீழினல்லது அவ்விடத்துப் பசுத்த புல்லினது தோற்றமுங் காண்டல் அரிது. ஆங்கென்பதனை அசையாக்கினு மமையும். இஃது ஓரறிவுயிருங் கெடுமென்றது.

    Translation:
    If from the clouds no drops of rain are shed. ‘Tis rare to see green herb lift up its head.

    Explanation:
    If no drop falls from the clouds, not even the green blade of grass will be seen.

  2. Tropical cyclone bansi.. Now a category 1 cyclone…….

  3. wake up Tamil Nadu wake up. Gujarat is covering their canals with solar panels thus preventing evaporation of water and generating electricity. We can do the same with Chennai reservoirs. Cover the top with solar panels and generate electricity. When will this Govt wake up ?

  4. Cyclone Bansi is exploding in intensity for the past few hours.It has developed a pin hole eye .In no time it will be reaching cat 2. Looks like it will be a major cyclone by today.

  5. It will be interesting to see how rapid it intensifies .Currently a cat 1 storm.It would cross cat 2 intensity in no time and reach cat 3.

    • The ouflow from cyclone bansi could pose some problem for 93S.Good thing is that Bansi is moving away from madagascar which would improve the conditions for 93S.

  6. t.nadu, karnataka, kerala, have better water storage in the reservoirs in southern states, compared to last year till jan 8th, but andhra showed a dip in storage, – as per data released by central water commission.

  7. ENSO Tracker status remains at El Niño ALERT

    El Niño-like conditions in the tropical Pacific Ocean weakened during late December to early January, after being close to or exceeding El Niño thresholds for several weeks. The Bureau’s ENSO Tracker status remains at El Niño ALERT.

    Climate models generally indicate little significant change over the next two to three months, with warmer than average sea surface temperatures persisting in the tropical Pacific Ocean.

  8. A cloud mass near Indonesia moving westward .Wind shear is highly favorable in bay of bengal but most part of bay is dominated by dry air which will cause hindrance.This is the reason for models not developing that cloud mass.

    • its usual track of Madagascar cyclones.It will create impact for maritius
      when the cyclone forms to the north east of madagascar it either hits madgascar or moves close to mauritius.

  9. Guys,

    Basic thing we have to see this Jan 2015, why Bay cannot produce any system.

    The south indian ocean is hosting more and more systems, this is the season, so typically ITCZ zone has shifted downwards.
    Any low formed near Andamans will directed by the South Indian Ocean systems henceforth. They may pull the low down the latitude, so there are more chances that low’s will move below Srilanka, hence NTN may not get chances of rain.

    Also IOD is negatively neutral, the latest value is -0.46, which has decreased since last week,

    Hence LOW formed cannot climb up the latitude.

  10. Todays temperatures of Andhra pradesh and Telangana

    Lammasingi 0 degree celcius
    Chintapalli 1 degree celcius
    Paderu 1.4 (near ashram school)
    Adilabad 5
    Hyderabad(uppal area) 7.8
    Hyderabad 10.5
    Ramagundam 9.6
    Kurnool 12.7
    Tirupati 16.3

  11. In 2015 Lammasingi in visakhapatnam district recorded 0 degree temperature 4 times.Yesterday many news channels pointed out the unofficial minus temperatures.

  12. Andhra Kashmir….Lammasingi……Cooler than ooty……
    Lambasingi (or Lammasingi) is a small village in the Chintapalli Mandal of Vishakapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh, India. It is situated in the agency area. This place is often referred as Kashmir of Andhra Pradesh. The temperatures in this places go as low as 0 °C in December – January). This village is situated at a height of above 1000 meters from the sea level.

    Another name for this Lambasingi village is Korra Bayalu. Korra means ´stick´, Bayalu means ‘outside’, in the local language this means “if some one stays outside the house in the open they will freeze like a stick”.

    In the state of Andhra Pradesh Adilabad and Arogyavaram are couple of places that record lowest temperatures. Lammasingi records less than 5 °C even in seasons other than winter. You can see sun only after 10 am on any given day and in winters only around 12 but again by 3pm this place will be blanketed by thick fog.

    The wind from the forest and the mountains blows from Chintapalli (another place close to Lambasangi) becomes stable at Tajangi valley because of dense trees and water resources. Fog has more humidity because of the abundant water resources and as the fog travels from chintapalli to Tajangi Valley and then to Lambasingi the temperatures in Lambasingi and Tajangi are almost same but in Chintapalli a bit warmer comparatively.

    5 day forecast for bansi

  14. yesterday Federer became the 3rd player to win 1000 matches in men’s professional tour tennis ,
    Jimmy Cannors ( won 1253 matches) , and Ivan Lendle ( won 1,071 matches) were the other two great players ,achieved this feat before him.

    • Connors cannot be caught. actually in those days they used to play a lot. Lendle was saying he used to win 100 matches a year. Federer needs to play for 5-6 more years to catch Connors

      • but his age will not allow him to play that much, already he lost his prime, but he will always remain my hero along with lendle.

      • ANy player who is in top form can win maximum 70 matches per year…so federer will need atleast 4 years…but sure to end as player with 2nd most wins..will beat Lendl next jan ( if he doesn’t retires)

  15. indians dropped to 7th place in latest i.c.c test rankings, w.i, bangladesh, zimbawe are the 3 teams which behind india in latest rankings.

  16. Waiting for thunderstorm activity with hail storms which are very common in kurnool….still march is faaaaar away……got bored with regular chilly nights…..want extreme weather……want to see cumulo nimbus clouds in the sky……I dont understand why temperature is not dipping below 10 degrees……in kurnool,always lingering between 11 and 12 degrees

  17. During summer especially in march and may……I used to stay on the stairs in order to watch these kind of cumulo nimbus clouds….I used to love to watch them growing……I thought that I was only the different person doing these kind of things….But now in this blog Its happy to see many people like me…..Hope you also do these things right…..before 2 years I don’t now doppler products,insat images…..all those stuff….I only observed the cloud direction and the situation around me….I was doing this from my 3 standard……Now I am an employee and Iam still doing all this……..Thanks for this blog…I dont see any blog like this in my andhra..

  18. during 70’s and 80’s pongal always associated with test matches in chepauk ground, missing the tamil commentary by abdul jabbar, koothapiran, rangachari etc.

    Peril: Windstorm

    Intense Tropical Cyclone Bansi (05S) formed over the Southwest Indian Ocean early UTC Sunday January 11, approximately 320 mi (515 km) east of Madagascar, and intensified rapidly to reach Category 1 strength on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Winds scale (SSHWS) later that day. As of 06:00 UTC today, Monday January 12, the system is tracking east as a Category 3 storm (SSHWS) on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale (SSWS) over open waters, having continued to intensify rapidly over night. According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) as of 06:00 UTC on Monday January 12, the center of Bansi was located close to 17.25°S 55.9°E, approximately 220 mi (350km) northwest of the island of Mauritius, with maximum sustained winds of 115 mph (185 km/hr), equivalent to a Category 3 storm on the SSHWS, and was tracking east at 8 mph (13 km/hr) towards the sparsely populated island archipelago of Saint Brandon. Hurricane force winds are extending 35 mi (56 km) from the center of the storm, while tropical storm force winds are extending outwards up to 120 mi (195 km), and are not affecting land at this time. Bansi is forecast to track to the southeast and strengthen slightly over the next 18 hours, while remaining a category 3 storm, approximately 105 mi (170 km) southwest of Saint Brandon and 180 mi (290 km) northeast of Mauritius. After this time, Bansi is forecast to continue tracking southeast across the Southwest Indian Ocean, while beginning to weaken. Tropical storm force winds are forecast to impact Saint Brandon tomorrow, Tuesday January 13 and the island of Rodrigues, an outer island of the Republic of Mauritius, on Thursday January 15. Tropical storm or hurricane force winds are not forecast to impact Mauritius at this time.

  21. i think many in this blog have lost hopes on rainfall during pongal but i am sure that we will get some rain during tail end of the pongal (ie) on 17 or 18 so dont loose hopes guys

    weather is always unpredictable today it may be winter but tmrw we our self dont know what will happen so only hopes keeps us alive so be positive

  22. finally NOAA expects the elnino like conditions to fade off by late march and thereafter returning to neutral enso from mid april..

  23. ooofff!!! ecmwf expecting solid elnino conditions till may.. tis is against noaa n jma.. the feed back from indian ocean is not supportive for the warm enso conditions .so it will b interesting

  24. Raghavendra & vijay, Lanina-Modoki coupling with -ve IOD (similar to 2005) always good for both SWM & NEM. Hope 2015 will be repeated like 2005 style.
