  4. looks like Chennai summer has arrived. Energy sapping heat while travelling to office now and yesterday night was sticky too 🙂

  5. Unseasonal rains one side.. Another side, Trichy palayamkottai almost touched 100 deg faren yest… Scorching summer awaited..

  6. Another cyclonic circulation have formed over West of Pakistan, likely to move in WNW direction towards North West India, it is likely to impact entire north india like Haryana, HP, J&K and Uttarakhand, more rain likely as already flood like situation prevails in J&K.

    The upcoming CC is likely to be stronger one, will start impacting from 08th or 09th, until 10th or 11th.

    Heavy to very heavy rainfall in the above states expected.

  7. if a rain is above normal during spring season in any of the states in northwest india mean swm will be below normal….
    if a rain is above normal during spring season in any of the states in peninsular india mean nem will be above normal

  8. THIS IS NOT RAINY SEASON DUDE …MARCH 2008 CHENNAI GOT MORE THAN 150MM THAT TIME INTERIORS LEFT OUT…SO THINGS WILL CHANGE—-

  9. Thursday 05 March 2015, 0930 hours IST

    All India Weather Inference

    ♦ The western disturbance as an upper air trough in the mid ­tropospheric westerlies now runs roughly along longitude 65°E and north of latitude 30.0°N.

    ♦ The upper air cyclonic circulation over Comorin area and adjoining south Tamilnadu now lies over Comorin area and adjoining Lakshadweep area and extends upto 0.9 km above mean sea level.

    ♦ Another Western Disturbance would affect western Himalayan region, plains of northwest India and central India from 7th night onwards. Wind confluence would also take place over central India & neighbourhood from 7th night onwards.

  10. Negative OLR peaks over Central and North India and some internal part of South India too, those areas are getting TS regularly. This is due to meeting point of Cold and Warm Air over interior part of our country, this is why OLR turned negative.

    Also MJO is in Phase 4 from yesterday and expected to move towards Phase 5 by 08th, Negative OLR peaks in Phase 4 too, Central Pacific might host a strong system in the coming days, this MJO will trigger the same, as there is some development at central equatorial pacific.

  11. Bangladesh have two matches : Eng & NZ..& ENG having two matches : Bang & afghan..
    The match b/w bang & eng will be a knock out game for both.. Those who win will be in q/f ..

  12. MH370 and MH17 were same plane

    This theory is based on photos of the MH17 crash site in Ukraine, which
    proponents argue shows that the second crashed plane was in fact MH370,
    a later 777 model that had some small changes to its body. How MH370
    could have been hidden for six months before being substituted for MH17 –
    and what happened to the bodies – is not explained.

  13. TS inside 50km Radius in March 1st week is Lucky One for Chennai.
    Intense TS Popping up Near 50km radius.

  14. Looks like today is the best chance to get rains..could see few storms in radar and wind direction is favorable as of now.

  15. Interesting Facts,

    Whenever ENSO value were positive and increases from Jan-Mar, Chennai received below normal rainfall during Jan-May period and below normal rains during SWM season.

    However We have received normal to excess rainfall during NEM season.

    1969 & 1987 both years we had the same pattern of ENSO, and above said pattern has happened.

    Both the years the SOI were negatively neutral in Jan and Feb and stayed neutral till May.
    IOD also were perfectly neutral in both the years.
    The same IOD pattern prevailing now, SOI is just on the positive side of the neutral value.

    The SST of all NINO regions may remain hotter until end of March, from April it will come down once again and ENSO will become Positive Neutral by May.

      • yes Partha,

        SWM-dynamics taking shape slowly. Moreover we can not take that much serious about Elnino-alert by BoM. Before spring Elnino-dynamics too volatile to predict.

        I believe by the time SWM-onsets, the warm ENSO will subside and turn ENSO-neutral by July onwards, which will trigger enhanced SWM-conditions all over India.

        SWM-2015 to be surplus rainfall year, at the same time NEM-2015 also to be above normal.

        Note:
        Expecting Hurricane-2015 also to be active season unlike last 3 years.

  16. Arctic sea ice is getting thinner faster than expected http://buff.ly/1w6ghXe

    While the steady disappearance of sea ice in the Arctic has been one of the hallmark effects of global warming, research shows
    it is not only covering less of the planet, but it’s also getting significantly thinner. That makes it more susceptible to melting, potentially altering local ecosystems, shipping routes and ocean and atmospheric patterns. New data compiled from a range of sources – from Navy submarines to satellites – suggests that thinning is happening much faster than models have estimated, according to a study aiming to link those disparate data sources for the first time. University of Washington researchers Ron Lindsay and Axel Schweiger calculated that in the central part of the Arctic Ocean basin, sea ice has thinned by 65% since 1975. During September, when the ice reaches its annual minimum, ice thickness is down by a stunning 85%.

  17. Weather might help Pakistan in their encounter against South Africa. That looks like the only way Pakistan can avoid defeat vs De Villers and Co.

  18. South AP continues to get much needed rains, ending 8.30 am 05.03.2015

  21. India await West Indies test on bouncy Perth, a pitch which has the reputation of being the fastest in the world.


  22. Multiple time Grand Slam champions Leander Paes and Martina Hingis met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday and presented him personally signed racquets with which they won the 2015 Australian Open mixed doubles title.

  23. drama after drama,atlast Elnino has arrived late to the party but not impressive in strength says NOAA .. experts have observed the pattern appeared to b same like 2004-2005.. it has been closely monitored to see how long the conditions likely to get maintained.. 1986 to 1988 was one of the longest enso event lasted for more than 18months.

    • This should be the temporary phenomenon, ELNINO may not sustain beyond May month, last month only central pacific was hotter and this month entire Pacific is hotter, hence the warm SST is spread across the basin.

      We can expect some tropical systems in Central Pacific in the coming days and during summer also, this may cool off the SST in the next 2-3 months time, by September i feel that ENSO must be negatively neutral.

      IOD expected to positive by June end for temporary period.

      SWM during June might be on a dull phase, but from July it will pick up and wipe off all the deficits in the entire country.

      We need to watch out TS season for Chennai, i feel that Chennai may get lesser rainfall during SWM.

      NEM will be promising.

  24. India expects higher rainfall from the monsoon this year after patchy rains affected farm
    output last season, weather office sources told The monsoon prediction is based
    on the fact that the El Nino weather pattern, which is marked by the warming of
    sea surface temperature on the Pacific Ocean, is in a “neutral”
    phase, said the sources at the India Meteorological Department (IMD). The Australian
    weather bureau on Tuesday forecast that the chance of an El Nino developing
    this year had risen to about 50 percent.
    The IMD has already shared its current outlook with the government and is expected to come
    out with another assessment of El Nino in April, the sources said,

  26. The crop damage on account of the unseasonal rain and hailstorm has aggravated the woes of farmers across the country. MP’s across party lines raised concerns in the upper house of parliament todayseeking urgent govt intervention. In an interview to CNBC-TV18, Jatin SIngh of
    Sky Met says about 25 percent of wheat crop value has been lost due to this
    untimely rain but worse damage is seen being caused by the rains likely on
    March 8 and 9.
