  3. Micronesia’s Caroline Islands have been taking a beating today from Category 5 Super Typhoon Maysak.

    As of 2 p.m. today EDT (morning on Wednesday in Micronesia), the Joint Typhoon Warning Center pegged Maysak’s strongest sustained winds at 160 miles per hour, with gusts to 195 mph.

    This makes Maysak “one of only three Category 5 storms ever observed in the Northwestern Pacific prior to April,” according to Jeff Masters of Weather Underground.

    • partha, checkout cimss mean layer winds for w.pacific, u will get some idea on steering..tis is being a super typhoon ,driven by a deep layer ridge,so the maximum weightage maybe given for the 200-400MB layer.

  5. Very hot here with some clouds developing. IMD expects rain at many places in kerala and isolated in TN today.

  6. Some one has sent me the personal message stating not to post – world weather in this blog….. and requested me to follow the same….. he told me to post only local weather….

    But today & yesterday it seems more post regarding world weather, will that person control himself to avoid posting world weather or this rule is only applicable for me……………..

    Crazy people’s………….. (Don’t ask the person name…., i am not interested to reveal the same… )

  7. seems like a low pressure in making in south central bay of bengal.did any body observe that one in the latest satellite image?

  8. STY maysak, Convergence is getting concentrated more twrds southern Quadrant.. and also system has weakened a bit .. intensity down to 130 from 140knts

  9. Western Ghats of Tamilnadu battering from Heavy TS. Another 100mm may be expected from Nilgris Dist.

  10. Watch out for increase in Maximum Temperature in Chennai and TN.

    925 & 850 HPA wind will change its direction in next 48 hours over South India.

    So far this level winds were from SSE, in next 2 days the wind direction will change to Westerly. This is due to a development of ACC near KTK Coast.

    We might experience increase in Day time temperature in the next 48 hours.

  13. Rains likely to continue till Friday, don’t panic: J&K Met

    After 32 years, Jammu & Kashmir has witnessed its highest rainfall in March and the rains are likely to continue up to Friday.

    The intensity of the rainfall in the coming days is expected to be less than what the state has received in the last week of March.

    Director of Meteorology Sonum Lotus told The Indian Express that Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed around 300 mm rains in the month of March. “This year March was the wettest month in last 32 years,” he said, adding that in 1983 the state had witnessed around 365 mm rains.

    “There are many reasons for the consecutive spells of the rainfall in the Valley,” he said.

    Lotus said that rainfall in last September, which triggered massive floods in the Valley, was much higher than what we are witnessing now. “Fresh cycle of rainfall started on Wednesday and the next 24 hours will be crucial. The Valley will witness more rains tonight and after Friday the intensity will be less,” he said.

    He said that people should not panic, but should remain cautious. “This time many rumours about the intensity of rainfall in the Valley are doing rounds on various social networking sites, people should not pay heed to them.”

  16. Only in Haiyan, i have seen perfect pink symmetry and it is an once in decadal storm.

    Infrared VIIRS images of some of the strongest Pacific tropical cyclones of the past year at their peak intensity. The colors tell us he temperature of the cloud tops. The colder the cloud tops, the higher they are, indicating stronger updrafts and thus a more vigorous tropical cyclone. The white colors are temperatures of -80°C (-112°F), and the pink colors (only seen in Haiyan) are still colder, about -85°C (-121°F). This is the temperature at the very top of the troposphere (base of the stratosphere), about 50,000 feet high. Haiyan (195 mph winds) stands out as being much more intense than the other super storms

  19. Alert…..
    We need to focus on trend in SST-anomalies next 2 months (before completion of spring) at area 1 (A1) & area 2 (A2) in order to break the “spring hurdle” for the forecasted Elnino-2015 to establish firmly.

    The SST-anomalies must cool down at A1 &A2 for forecasted Elnino-2015 to establish firmly. Especially A2 must cool down.

    Note: A1&A2 SST variations versus regular Elnino/Elnino-modoki/ENSO-neutral type conditions will be discussed later.

    SST-anomalies:http://s12.postimg.org/s115bhyt9/sst.gif

    • but rami, in contrast the NINO 1&2 is getting hotter and the forecast suggests that east pacific will be hotter in the next couple of months and west pacific SST will reduce in the coming days.

      also central equatorial pacific is going to remain hot, hence can we say that ELNINO will strongly emerge during the onset of SWM?

      unless A1 cools down, we might see a threat to SWM 2015.

  20. Uncomforatable days are here. Nights are getting uncomfortable and Cloud Cover in Nights making temp to reduce in less degrees.

  22. MJO in phase 3, South Indian Ocean up to 10S is getting most benefitted.

    1. Parts of STN getting some convective activity, rainfall possible today.
    2. Coastal and Interior parts of Kerala will get good rainfall in the next 48 hours.

  23. @jon_adam:disqus

    The weakening of Maysak, is due to 2 reasons.

    1. Strengthening of Wind Shear up to 80 knots.

    2. The main reason is that the MJO is in phase 3 and expected to move towards Phase 4 in next few days. This MJO is pushing all 200 HPA steering winds towards East, that is from Bay to South China Sea. Since our Bay and Andaman Sea will have low pressures, the HPA area is getting pushed towards South China Sea, hence an ACC formed over that place. Maysak is moving in opposite direction towards this ACC (dry air region). Since this MJO is strongly pushing the 200 HPA winds, maysak is expected to weaken.

  24. While tornadoes can be spawned any time of year the volatile mix of climatological ingredients exist, April is a particularly dangerous month for tornadoes in parts of the U.S.
    Over the past 10 years, April comes in only behind May for average U.S. tornado counts. That average is admittedly skewed by April 2011, in which 758 U.S. tornadoes set a record for any month.
    Of the 59 tornadoes strong enough to be rated F/EF5 from 1950-2014, just over one-third of those – 20 tornadoes – occurred in April. These include four EF5 tornadoes in the April 2011 Superoutbreak and seven F5 tornadoes in the April 1974 Superoutbreak.

    ================================
    The cyclonic circulation over Lakshdweep area and neighbourhood persists and now extends upto 1.5 kms a.s.l.

    Why is Coonoor getting Heavy Rainfall ?
    ————————–
    Coonoor gets its 4th 100 mm rainfall this year. No other place has even come close to Coonoor’s spell this year even Kashmir or Himachal. Whys is it Coonoor getting such heavy spells. As you all know why Cherrapunji gets heavy rainfall, the moisture laden South West Monsoon winds gets trapped in the Khasi hills valley and thereby getting legendry rains.

    Coonoor as you know is one of wettest place in India during North East Monsoon. The valley is placed such that winds can come into the valley only from east and gets locked. For the past one month, the UAC’s are moving from Comrin Sea into Arabian Sea. while they move into Arabian Sea the wind is from east and its moisture gets locked in the Coonoor valley there by creating heavy rains, these rains last only for 1-3 hours. In this short span of it pours with very heavy intensity. The super spells in Coonoor in 2015. In all the 4 cases, it was a UAC moving into Arabian Sea from Comrin Sea.

    Watch out for increase in Maximum Temperature in Chennai and TN.
    925 & 850 HPA wind will change its direction in next 48 hours over South India.

    So far this level winds were from SSE, in next 2 days the wind direction will change to Westerly. This is due to a development of ACC near KTK Coast.

    We might experience increase in Day time temperature in the next 48 hours.

  28. Many parts of Andhra is expected to get more rainfall, as there is huge amount of wind discontinuity.
    Northern and Western part will get more rainfall in next 24 hours.

    These rain will extend to South AP in next 48 hours and to Central and SI KTK during the same period.
    Rain will continue until April 06th over these regions.

    There is some chances for NTN also from 04th to 07th.
