  16. NEW DELHI: Rains lashed the national capital through the night leading to severe waterlogging in major parts of Delhi With the CBSE exams scheduled on Monday traffic police has advised commuters to avoid some of the roads that are worst affected by traffic jams the ensued.

  17. An unusually potent storm system lashed India over the weekend, bringing copious rain across a large swathe of the country, from J&K to Karnataka, in what Met officials described as a rare occurrence for this time of the year. The system is expected to blow over by Tuesday morning, but not before it drenches most of north and central India, as well as parts of the south, and dumps a few feet of fresh snow in the Himalayas.
    “There was intermittent, heavy rainfall across large parts of the country on Sunday. Such widespread rain at this time of the year is not very common. The wet weather in north and central India will continue for at least another day,” said B P Yadav, director, India Meteorological Department.
    t.o.i

  18. Former Pakistan pacer Sarfraz Nawaz has accused the ICC of favoring the Indian team in the ongoing cricket World Cup by providing the defending champions pitches tailor made to suit their strengths.I would ask the Pakistan Cricket Board to take up this issue with the ICC and find out what is going on,” he said. Nawaz said that Pakistan should lodge a protest with the ICC as one could see India was being favored by the sport’s world governing body.
    t.o.i

      • when minnows like Ireland, Zimbawe plays well and fight till the end, who prevents Pak players to do well?

      • problem is Pakistan is not allowed to build their domestic cricket. No country is visiting them for tours. Playing in UAE will not help them. Cricket in Pakistan is doomed.

      • agree, but lot of infighting with in the team,as well as in management, Misbah only fighting in all matches won’t help them

      • The last minute axe given to cook was a big blunder by ECB.. they should have persisted with him till the end of this world cup.. you can’t just hand the captaincy to a new guy just like that.

      • I am not saying cook is a great batsman but by removing him they have taken England out of their comfort zone .. after all Morgan is from Ireland.. I am not sure whether other players like the idea of playing under him..

    • I strongly condemn this allegation from Sarfraz Nawaz. Typical pakistani commenting on when his team not performing well.

      When Ind and Pak played each other,
      They played in same pitch, why they did not score, how India performed?

      Why Pakistan lost to other teams?

      They even struggled against Zimbabwe yesterday, Why?

      If India could play in a pitch, then all other countries can play well in that same pitch.

      Useless allegations, they could not bare the defeat, this is the attitude of Pak Cricket since they begun playing Cricket.

      • exactly, this allegation reminds our old saying ” there is no right to blame the road/ stage, when one don’t know how to dance”

    • All the venues have been prepared by installing drop in pitches to assist strokeplay n suit subcontinent teams no doubt,… These r not original aussie pitchez we even saw tat during india tour, there is som deal goin on surely, but the fact of the matter is its the same for both teams no clear Advantages for any single teaa

      • after any long tour, pitches tend to lose sheen, agree the pitches played by Indian test team more or less look like sub- continent pitches, but all the teams are playing in the same pitches, then how come one team is just favoured?

      • S tats wat saying its the same for all the teams no complaints… Would ve been nicer though on native pitches wer true skill is required n bowlers have something..

      • Yeah well said.. even did you notice that the outfield has become faster .. normally gentle extra cover drives and cuts will not take the ball past the boundary in Australia .. balls used to stop before reaching the boundary but now outfield is lightning fast similar to sub continent

      • new rules favoring batsmen, t-20, made lot of centuries possible so far, this will be the trend of ODI’s in future

      • N also most indian players(modern) play bounce well, but will continue to struggle on seaming conditions

    • He has a very valid point. But instead of informing the media about this, he should have directly informed the PCB regarding this issue. But nothing is going to happen. Money power rules.

      • even during 1992 W.C they were out of picture, to the most part of the tournament, then suddenly became champions, let them repeat it now,

      • instead of throwing unconvincing stories, let them first analyze what is really going wrong with in the team.

      • Fast bowling is current Pak team’s only strength and batting is their weakness. The pitches for the world cup are tailor made for batsman. Now you can see why Pak is struggling.

  19. What’s Happening?
    Raining In All Over India Except Chennai.Rain In Kerala,Karnataka,Maharashtra,South TN,Andhra And Delhi Except Chennai

    • This was the forecast given 5 days back.

      parthasri35, Rajakilpakkam • 5 days ago

      The form of ACC near Myanmar and Adjoining North Bay of Bengal and Cyclonic Circulation over North India from 28th or 01st March 2015.

      Also Negative OLR is at its peak.

      Meeting of two different air masses expected next week, dry air from east and moist air from west.
      This will bring up rain over Deccan Plateau, places like Central and North AP, KTK, SI Maharashtra, South MP, Chattisgarh.
      The date between 01st and 05th of March.

      Humidity will be less till 05th over chennai.

      This is the time for change over of lower level wind direction. Once it changes from first week then day and night temp will increase over chennai.

    • NZ is for sure in good form.. No doubt about that.. But there are flaws in their middle order. If williamson and McCullum fail their batting will falter. We saw glimpses of it against Aus. and even in that match they both were the only players who played well

    • Video technology and science converge on an active volcano in Vanuatu, where explorer Sam Cossman operated camera-mounted drones to capture high-definition images of the spectacular yet dangerous Marum Crater. Cossman and his team piloted the drones over the 7.5-mile-wide (12-kilometer) caldera while confronting toxic gases and boiling lava. Although two drones succumbed to the harsh environment, the team was able to bring back video and photos that will help scientists learn more about the volcano and the life around it.

  20. I think India have the best spin attack among all the teams in the World Cup. Ashwin and Jadeja have been effective on pitches that have traditionally been pace-friendly. In no other team have I seen spinners bowl so effectively in tandem. I rate India as one of the favourites,” – Brad Hogg said, I feel the teams that have good spinners, have been performing consistently. India have Ashwin and Jadeja, Kiwis have Vettori and South Africa have Imran Tahir. They all are leaving an impression on the World Cup, despite the batsmen having virtually taken over the show,” Hogg said.

  21. Jon, reg. jog falls

    Not sure if it can be made perennial in that terrain. But the water hardly reaches down at this point of time as it will be sprayed across by winds before plunging 830 ft.

    I think it was named Rocket, raja, rani and roarer or rover. of these only the left one (think named rocket) will have perennial fall throughout year and we cannot reach that. swimming across is dangerous. other falls can be reached.

    Once when i was there, KB sir was taking a song for his film Kalki.. he was a nice person and patient enough. they were spending 1 full day for 1 single step / shot, because of the wind.

  22. A cyclonic circulation is expected to form around 07th near west of Pakistan and it is expected to move towards India.
    Further it may move along 25 to 30N latitude till 10th of March.

    1. From 08th North Rajasthan, Punjab, HP, Haryana and J&K likely to get benefitted.
    2. From 09th onwards J&K, HP, Haryana, Uttarkhand and West UP will get heavy rains.

    The above places is likely to get rainfall from 07th until 11th March.


  23. In general predictions, it is expected that ELNINO Modoki is likely to continue until May or June month since SST going to be above normal over Central Pacific.

    Due to central pacific impact and positive IOD is also expected around June or July and will fall again to normal by September.

    Interior India may be warmer than normal temp during this summer, coastal regions may escape, it may be normal in these places, also SWM is likely to be near normal in 2015.

    Still we need to wait for all these conditions to happen until Mid of April to get clear picture.

  27. Districts of Tamil Nadu classified as potential risk zones with regards to Cyclonic winds and damage:
    ————————————————————————————————————————————
    1)Thiruvallur – Very High.
    2)Kancheepuram- Very High.
    3)Tiruvanamalai – Very High.
    4)Cuddalore – Very High.

      • PJ , even I searched for Chennai , but the list doesn’t seem to contain it. But given Thiruvallur and Kanchi , we can take it for granted.

        And Sorry , I forgot to include two more dists.

        12)Villupuram – Very High
        13)Thoothukudi – Very High

  28. Alert,

    Flash News,

    Moderate to Strong TS expected over SI KTK, South AP and North Interior TN by 05th March.

    An ACC may form over West Central Bay and CC expected over East Central Arabian Sea, this is expected to make two air masses at 850 HPA levels to meet at South Central India around SI KTK, South AP and North Interior TN.

    This phenomenon expected to bring TS on the above said areas on 05th.



  29. A Storm surge probability from a Cyclone increases in areas where the coast is concave shaped , along with shallow bathymetry.
    S.AP coastal regions unfortunately have this feature , whereas N.TN coast is a bit convex shaped one and not that shallow bathymetry is associated with this coast .

    One more benefit out of a convex shaped coast is that SWM related T’storms and sea breeze together produce good rains

  30. A small recall from the review meet held at RMC Chennai a few days back.

    Cyclone Hudhud’s height was noticed to have had a mean height of just 10 km .
    At one point of time , Cyclone “MADI” , in 2013 had a single T’storm that towered almost 18 – 20 km altitude .

  37. Sea WIFI image of Massive Dust Storm blowing from Iran and Pakistan
    07th December 1999.

    This is due to sinking air over South Asia during NE Monsoon time, this created more pressure over the land, it makes the land dry and cool, due to this we might see some dust storms like this one from Northern part of India.

    This Arabian sea dust storm due to more dry air movement from North to South, this inturn pushes ITCZ zone towards 10 to 15S latitude, since the dry air is stronger through arabian sea, this creates Southward Flowing Somali Current. The Somali current is which flowing from south india towards equatorial indian ocean, this wind meets another current from southern indian ocean at 0 to 15S latitude and at around 45 to 60 E longitude almost near to African Coast of Somalia, this is why it is called Somali Current.

    This is the place where the cyclonic formations originates from January( The tropical system season), exactly around SW Indian Ocean.

  38. Rain rain come again..
    Wanna see your beauty again
    Sound of the thunder
    Always makes me wonder,
    Streaks of lightning,
    Always a shade frightening,
    Let the heavens open up
    Mood is sure to lighten up,
    Let the rains pound,
    Plenty of joy abound,
    Let it come down pouring,
    Life will never be boring,
    Rain ,you’re music to my ears
    Willing to hear it for years..
    Rain,you’re blissful to mind
    Rain, you’re soulful to heart
    Rain rain come again…
