Max temperature starting to rise

Last 2 days with max of 31.4 and 31.6 respectively were the hottest days of the year yet. Expect the same to increase gradually into 33 in a months time and 35-36 by April. Minimum temp will also start to increase from now on.

  4. Interiors will have a rocking summer as it started from yesterday.
    Salem, karur, madurai, vellore, trichy, nellai dist will have 37’c and thereby increses 38-39’c by march first week.

  5. Returned from Sabarimala today. Heat all around kerala, scortching upto 35+ and rain bearing clouds slowly by evg. rained at sannidanam last saturday.

  6. Congrats India for thumbing, and convincing victory against arch rivals, and maintaining the record for the 6th time in a row.

  7. Really felt bad for Misbah, the lone warrior, as usual, he tried hard, but other player’s really let him down, had he some good partnership, the result would have been on the other side.

  8. As I said already, if the top 3/4 players maintain the wicket for first 20 overs, every team can post 275, some times more also, this is what happened so far, including today’s match all batting first team had posted more than 300, the rules are a plus to batsmen rather than bowlers, even the batting 2nd team also played well in most matches,

  9. Attention everyone. RMC IMD Monsoon 2014, review meet to be held at IMD RMC Nungambakkam, College road on 19th Thursday, 2015. Mail invite to follow from Ramanan Sir anytime today. Ramanan Sir, IMD has invited one and all to attend the review meet. Further uptates on the exact timings will be be let known once we get the mail from Sir. Thanks.

  10. What happened to west indies..poor bowling & great batting by ireland…ireland nearing to victory..needs 81 runs with 16overs remain.. IF they wins today..This might be a great upset for WI..

  11. Nasa has warned that, a vast of the U.S, including the South west states and the central plains, should prepare for ” unprecedented drought conditions” unlike anything in the past 1000 years due to climate change, later this century, this could devastate the region’s agricultural capabilities, decimating both crops and cattle herds. the mega drought of 35 years or longer occurring in U.S, unless swift and aggressive action is taken in the speed and impact of climate change.

  12. OLR turns negative, could cause for more humidity and it will increase the day time temperature, as i said last week, there may be moderate system in SE bay by month end.

    parthasri35, Rajakilpakkam • 3 days ago
    Strong Negative OLR emerging from 16th or 17th over Indian Ocean and Subcontinent
    This may trigger a strong system in south indian ocean from the 16th or 17th.

      • Shankar..spot on..Yes, Kea blog is should be proud to have bloggers like Mouli and others to have this sort of enthusiasm and share the same with others..Kudos Chandru. You have been one of a kind..Keep up your good work for the benefit of society in general..

  13. Minnows teams making this year wc interesting & unpredictable..from now onwards we shouldn’t call them as minnows..they r playing like a experienced team.. zim & scotland will also make a impact this year

  14. In all 5 matches till now in wc..first batting team scored 300+..& this is first time a team chasing 300 + & wins it.. ireland wins

    • in every W.C they give upset to a big team, they should try to improve their performance overall, and should try to become regular member in ODI’s

      • they should start playing test matches, they should claim the rights to ICC first, then they can develop themselves as another important cricket team, that means the top 8 will become top 9 teams of the world.

        until then they will be called as MINNOWS.

      • no ..there are no young best players..IN a team at least there should be young players to take singles and play slowly..all are old players who today played..

  15. India may have maintained their unbeaten streak against Pakistan, but they have never beaten South Africa in the World Cup! Can they hit SA too??????

  16. Visibility today here is very clear all across Chennai and its the surroundings , low level High pressure area that is hanging around coastal AP and adjoining west central BOB could be the reason for this quite extreme fair weather …………..

  17. When Kohli scored his first ODI ton, Gayle already scored 19 tons, but now Kohli has 22 tons, where as Gayle lag behind with 21 tons

  18. India will soon have the World’s largest 750 M.W Solar power plant in Rewa, M.P, next year, overtaking the 550 M.W project in California.

  20. Flash News,

    1. NINO 3.4 is likely to increase upto 1C above normal till May 2015. ELNINO or LANINA conditions are completely wiped off.

    2. IOD to remain neutral till May, expected to turn positive by June, will favour SWM 2015, but precipitation forecast still remains below normal in the entire country, except Andaman Islands, NE States, WB, Odisha, Bihar, East UP and Chattisgarh where the SWM rains will be above normal.

    3. Below normal rainfall expected across country during peak summer.

    4. Temperature over Interior parts of our country to be above normal from March to May, the scenario is already seen, many parts reporting 37C already, also in coastal areas temp likely to be normal this summer.
    Note – However from June to Aug temp is likely to be above normal in entire country.

  21. ” If MS Dhoni is having personal issues with my son, I won’t do anything, God will do justice,Want to know wht is MS Dhoni’s problem with my son,he played for nation even while suffering frm cancer” lol

    soon yograj father will apologize similar to sreesanth father, 🙂

  22. “If MS Dhoni is having personal issues with my son, I won’t do anything,
    God will do justice. Pray India wins World Cup under your captaincy (MS
    Dhoni) but nothing can be more sad that you behaved this way,” said
    Yograj.

    • if any one has right to point out finger on Dhoni with personal motives, it should be Sewagh, and Gambir, both of them suffered because of him, in fact, for long time Dhoni backed Yuvi.

      • There is no wrong on MSD..infact he supported him a lot..but his form worries.the selector..then he can tell all names : shewag, gambhir, harbhajan & many not selected in wc is due to msd.. infact yuvi has a great relation with msd ..

  23. Who is KC Cariappa..bought by Kolkata Knight Riders for 2.4 cr.. he is 20-year-old, has played a few games in the Karnataka Premier League last year but is yet to represent his state..
    Shreyas Iyer 😦 2.6 cr -DD) He played for the India Under-19 cricket team at the 2014 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup…( acceptable)..but what about KC cariappa..

    • KC Cariappa who went for a whopping 2.4 to Kolkata Knight Riders is a 19-year-old mystery spinner, similar to Sunil Narine. But wonder why KKR paid so much money for him? And Delhi Daredevils were also interested which triggered that huge bidding war!

    • Kolkata Knight Riders CEO Venky Mysore reveals the secret behind signing the unknown mystery spinner KC Cariappa.

      “We had him with us during the Champions League in the nets. And some of the legendary players like Jacques Kallis found him to be good and we said lets give him a shot. We were fortunate that we were in a position to take a punt and it happened. So for him, he has got an opportunity, so let’s see how he does.”

  24. Its very different weather in USA deviating from Elnino/Elnino like conditions. Dry west-coast USA and too cold N/NE USA. In ELnino/Elnino like conditions it has to be wet west-coast USA and milder winter for N/NE USA. Is there any new type of weather pattern (unlike ENSO-neutra/Elnino/Lanina) developed in 2014-15. Looks scientists already named it as California-nino. Need to understand its dynamics properly

    • One more worrying fact is that due to more rapid snow-melt at the poles (especially northern pole) making crazy/abnormal repeated lengthy Jet-stream patterns, which is not good sign for future weather events, thus for biological species including human beings.

  25. Observation and Update,

    From 25th Feb onwards the lower level wind direction will change from Easterly to SSE and SSW direction at 850 and 950 HPA levels, once this migration happened then the day temp will surely increase, also the night temp will increase to 25C, hence the night temp comfortness will be lost from 25th onwards.

  26. Already winds entrrin through s se corner balcony of my house I have balcony at both N NE and S SE …ne winds are weaking ..sivarathiri tom official arrival of sumer or end of winter…all running to time

    • Normally it keeps changing from E, NE. SE and so on. Not to worry. Easterly winds will prevail till April end some times up to Mid May also.

      • Nope observe catefully winds will change fron ne to se and southerly in march which is normal watch the cliud movement you will have the answer

  27. Thunder-snow is very rare phenomenon and nature’s admiring act. The latest winter storm “Neptune” produced thunder-snow over NE-USA places like Boston, Plymouth (Massachusetts), New-england etc.

    reason:
    the above areas are very close to Atlantic ocean, where warm humid air strongly colliding with cold-arctic air thus resulting in heavy snow-thunder storm (nothing but Nor’ester).

    thunder-snow link 1:

    thunder-snow link 2:

      • Overall thunder-snow phenomenon depends on how intense the interaction between cold & warm air bodies. Coastal areas will be having high probability than interior areas to get the thunder snow.

  28. A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck Northern Japan early Tuesday, with reports emerging that a small tsunami struck the coast without causing damage.
    Iwate Prefecture is largely rural, with a total population of around 1.3 million. While the area has a nuclear power plant, it was not damaged, according to a report from NHK. It also reported that local train lines have suspended operations.

  29. TROPICAL CYCLONE TECHNICAL BULLETIN: AUSTRALIA – NORTHERN REGION
    Issued by DARWIN TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNING CENTRE
    at: 0143 UTC 17/02/2015

    Tropical Cyclone Lam is expected to move slowly west in the short term, closely balanced between the main steering influences of the ridge to the south and the developing monsoon to the north. In the longer term, weakening of the ridge to the south and interactions with an upper trough should yield a slow southerly movement.

  30. Tsunami advisory lifted after 6.9 earthquake off northeast Japan

    TOKYO — A magnitude-6.9 earthquake struck off the northeastern coast of Japan early Tuesday, triggering minor tsunamis but no reports of major damage or injuries. The Japan Meteorological Agency lifted a tsunami advisory two hours after it was issued following the quake, which hit at 8 a.m. Japan time.

    The quake’s epicenter was at a depth of about 10 kilometers (6 miles). It shook much of northeast Japan and could be felt in Tokyo, 690 kilometers away. Small tsunamis of up to 20 centimeters were recorded after the quake along the coast of Iwate prefecture, according to the agency, much smaller than the possible 1-meter tsunami mentioned in the advisory.

    Several smaller aftershocks were also reported in the area. The earthquake struck in the same region hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, killing more than 18,000 people.

  31. Pacific Ocean now neutral, but may warm towards mid-year. Check our ENSO Wrap-Up: http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/enso/

    The tropical Pacific Ocean remains in a neutral state following the decline of near-El Nino conditions in early 2015. Most other ENSO indicators are also within neutral bounds. International climate models indicate the central tropical Pacific will maintain neutral, but above average, values until at least May 2015. Therefore, the ENSO Tracker status remains at NEUTRAL.

  32. Tropical Pacific Ocean remains ENSO-neutral

    Sea surface temperatures across the tropical Pacific Ocean are neutral, having eased away from near El Niño levels over the past two months. However several models suggest some renewed warming may occur beyond May.

    The majority of El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) indicators are currently within neutral bounds. Including temperatures at and beneath the surface of the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean; cloudiness near the Date Line; trade wind strength; and tropical rainfall patterns. In contrast, the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) is negative, though predominantly due to regional tropical weather patterns rather than broadscale shifts in pressure. It is likely the SOI will rise again in the coming week. It is typical for ENSO events to decay during the late summer to early autumn period, consistent with the recent shift away from near El Niño conditions.

    Model outlooks made in the first quarter of the year tend to be less reliable than those made at other times. That said, all international models surveyed by the Bureau indicate tropical Pacific sea surface temperatures are likely to remain warm, but within the neutral range, until at least May. Beyond that time, outlooks favour warm-neutral or El Niño-like ocean temperatures.

  33. Weekly sea surface temperatures

    The SST anomaly map for the week ending 15 February shows warm anomalies persist in the western-central tropical Pacific, with near normal ocean temperature observed across the eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean and in the Coral Sea. Anomalously warm ocean temperatures are observed in the eastern Indian Ocean. When compared with two weeks ago, the ocean has cooled slightly in the far west equatorial Pacific Ocean and Coral Sea and warmed in the Indian Ocean to the northwest of Australia. When compared with two weeks ago, the ocean has cooled slightly in the far west equatorial Pacific Ocean and Coral Sea and warmed in the Indian Ocean to the northwest of Australia.

  34. Monthly sea surface temperatures

    The SST anomaly map for January shows warmer than average waters covering much of the western tropical Pacific Ocean. Warm anomalies also cover much of the northeast of the Pacific Basin and waters off Australia¿s east coast. Compared to December, the ocean has cooled across most of the central and eastern equatorial Pacific, particularly east of about 160°W where anomalies were generally near zero for January.

  35. Latest Update from GOV.AU-ENSO WRAP UP

    1. The majority of El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) indicators are currently within neutral bounds. Including temperatures at and beneath the surface of the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean

    NINO 3 increased from 0.1 to 0.3C
    NINO 3.4 remains same at 0.4C
    NINO 4 remains same at 0.9C

    Models outlook suggests that the sea surface temp will remain warm till summer but within the normal limit and ENSO threshold. The warming of ocean has extended upto NINO 3 and up to 1C over NINO 3.4, means the warming of ocean is expected to remain same until May 2015 over the central equatorial pacific. These conditions may impact the onset date, but may not affect the entire SWM season.

    2. SOI was -9.5 as of 15th Feb 2015.
    Since the peak summer is observed over Northern part of Australia, the MSLP is lower in Darwin when comparing to Tahiti.
    Hence the SOI is expected to remain negative for the next one month time.

    3. IOD is at -0.4C
    This is expected to remain negatively or perfectly neutral till May, from June it is expected to become Positive.
    Since this is a tropical systems formation season over southern indian ocean and SST over Northern Indian Ocean is expected to remain constant. Also a tropical system expected to form over SW Indian Ocean by month end around 26th Feb due to MJO’s arrival in Phase 2 and OLR going to be strongly negative.

    Hence as i was saying earlier we should be experiencing early summer this time, but during peak summer the coastal areas will be having normal temp.

  36. Tropical cyclone over Gulf of Carpentaria

    Tropical cyclone Lam, currently located over the northern Gulf of Carpentaria, began as a low pressure system within the monsoon trough over the northern Coral Sea late last week. As the low tracked slowly westwards, crossing Cape York Peninsula on the weekend, it brought heavy rainfall and localised flooding to far northern Queensland. Some locations, including Cairns Airport, have now recorded over half a metre of rainfall for the month of February. The monsoon trough is expected to become more active over the Gulf of Carpentaria and northern Coral Sea potentially bringing more rainfall throughout the week ahead.

    Tropical cyclone activity this season has been below average in the Australian region. To date, there have only been three tropical cyclones recorded in the region (Bakung, 11–13 December; Kate, 24–30 December; and the currently active tropical cyclone Lam). Tropical Cyclone Lam will be the first cyclone to cross the Australian coastline if it follows its forecast path. This is late in the season for a first land crossing to occur. Only two previous cyclone seasons in the past 50 years have seen the first coastal crossing occur this late in the season (1969–70 and 1987–88). The last time Australia saw such a late first crossing was when tropical cyclone Charlie crossed the coast near Townsville on 29 February 1988.

  37. A team of scientists from the National Centre of Radio Astrophysics (NCRA), Pune ,will team up with other research organisations in the country to design the brain and nervous system of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) — conceived as the most ambitious radio telescope till date.

    The SKA, which will be the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope, will be ready only by 2020-21. It will have the capability of explaining questions related to the Universe like how the first stars and galaxies formed after the Big Bang, the nature of gravity and the search for life beyond Earth.

    The telescope will be co-located in extremely remote areas with sparse population in the regions of South Africa and Australia.
