Active Monsoon to present a wet Independence day to Central India

The Low Pressure Area (LPA) continues to move in a near westerly direction and now lies close to Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Uttar Pradesh. This is seen spinning with a buoyancy extending up to mid tropospheric levels, suitable to generate moist convection and cloudiness across the region and triggering heavy rains all across the core Monsoon region. To the north of this rain zone, easterlies/south easterlies impinging over the Himalayan foothills will generate another rain zone with the aid of Orographic mechanism to deliver monsoon rains. South-West India is spawning a weak off-shore trough which can generate rains along the Kerala and Karnataka coasts. Rainfall will gradually increase in the southern regions of Tamil Nadu, south interior Karnataka, Kerala and Rayalaseema.
02. INSAT
Chennai would experience cloudy skies with a day time maximum temperature of 35-36 C. Light rains possible towards evening.

Coimbatore will see a cloudy day with a maximum temperature close to 31 C.

Madurai to remain partly cloudy with a maximum temperature of 36-37 C. Late evening storms may bring in some light rains

  1. Yesterday was another flop show for Chennai regarding Rains. But I confirmed myself based on NET by 3pm that it won’t rain. I didn’t expected rains as the clouds are not towered up and rarely any mid level clouds around yesterday. Due to stable Conditions it was particularly dry day

  2. Hope a separate app is being introduced for tropical tidbits in nearer future which would be really useful! 🙂

  3. Bay mayn’t produce any convection in the coming days as an hpa making a move into our basin .. eastern indian ocean gyre below equ not going to influence tis UAC but the upcoming hpa will..westward moving hpa has pushed the trough down south and as a result a system formed in s.indian ocean ..

    • Yes rao sir mjo negative olr expected from today so lots of unstable conditions will be there to produce good rain

  4. Happy independence day guys.. couldn’t spend much time in blog for the past week or so.. hopefully I can come back regularly here from now on.. we also need a rain boost badly.. roads have dried up and have become parched too.

  6. What sel said is exactly the process that will induce a trough. A large westward moving high pressure is compressing the westerly flow causing this trough formation….

  9. A situation that arises once in a century…
    All the projects and reservoirs in AP and Telangana got independence from Human usage..Literally all major projects dried up..
    Worst drought for Kurnool chittor Nellore Prakasam Anantapur Godavari delta Hyderabad Rangareddy Medak Mahaboobnagar Nalgonda….Tirupati and kadapa is under major drought as all the local dams and also no water from srisailam this year

  10. Any team who can lose from yesterdays position are the neighbours India and Pakistan. No other teams will mess of such a great position

  11. Omg Bhajji ahead of Ashwin. Bhaji is hit or miss guy. If he fails more trouble for India. Bhaji is less in confidence.

  12. CPC UPDATE:
    The MJO has remained inactive over the past week as the low-frequency ENSO state dominates the pattern of anomalous tropical convection. An equatorial Rossby wave (ERW) is also contributing to the pattern of convection. The upper-level velocity potential pattern is largely wave-1, but has some noise over the Indian Ocean from the ERW. Some analyses show a residual MJO signal working around the planet and currently over Africa, but that signal is weak and opposing the low-frequency state, so difficult to decipher.

    The MJO is forecast to remain incoherent over the next two weeks, with all dynamical ensemble systems in fairly good agreement. Some statistical models predict eastward movement of the current, weak signal, though those models disagree with most of the dynamical models.

  13. NO water in our taps. Today also we had street fights for tanker water and it is becoming racial fight between tamil and telugu community in our locality. We are celebrating independence day and our leaders are talking high with out a sigh. something is seriously wrong with our system.

  14. instead of defence play., any one player would have gone for shots like chandi done yesterday.. score would have come down..

  15. i stopped watching or following cricket for more than three years. My mind is free of tension atleast on that count.

  16. Sanga deserves some thing like this in his last series. very pathetic to see indians falling to their biggest strength- Spin

  17. Guys i have a very simple doubt. our lakes capacity is 11 TMC. we have a live connection with kaveri via veernam lake. Why cant we pump 5 tmc from that lake now when mettur is opened. I think chennai water problem is simply getting aggravated without any good ideas.

    • this independence day itself is good or bad i dont know. I think tamil nadu under british rule would have progressed much better compared to our indian rule. We are becoming number one only in population.

      • Ha ha. Chennai would have progressed by leaps and bounds. But u would probably still be working for a British.

      • i have no problem at all. Now also lakhs of employees are working for invisible american and british masters only.

    • Clearly shows they were taking unwanted pressure on them, even a night watchman Ishant Sharma got out blocking instead he should have played positively and dhavan I had seen first time he had played like that very disappointingClearly shows they were taking unwanted pressure on them, even a night watchman Ishant Sharma got out blocking instead he should have played positively and dhavan I had seen first time he had played like that very disappointing

      • yes yes…that’s for sure in india…
        like what happened to yuvi.. won the world cup 2011 for india everyone just praised like
        hell unlucky in world cup t20 14 everyone blamed him…

      • In india ppl only remember last match. Doesn’t matter if India lost 4 matches in a series and wins or draws final test. Ppl will still praise the team.

    • What has harbajan done to get a recall? BCCI should think about future and not go into past. Soon we may have sehwag and yuvraj playing too

  18. IMD MID DAY:
    18 August (Day 4):♦ Heavy to very heavy rainfall would occur at a few places over SubHimalayan
    West Bengal & Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam & Meghalaya and at isolated
    places over Bihar and Kerala. Heavy rainfall would occur at isolated places over East Uttar
    Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram & Tripura, Coastal Karnataka, South Interior Karnataka,
    Tamilnadu & Pudducherry and Lakshadweep.
    19 August (Day 5): ♦ Heavy to very heavy rainfall would occur at a few places over SubHimalayan
    West Bengal & Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam & Meghalaya and at isolated
    places over Bihar and Kerala. Heavy rainfall would occur at isolated places over Nagaland,
    Manipur, Mizoram & Tripura, Coastal Karnataka, South Interior Karnataka, Tamilnadu &
    Pudducherry and Lakshadeep

      • Yes central tamilnadu is warmer than us and sea breeze would have setted in and Orographical lifting due to hills around Ariyalur which could result TS formation earlier.

  19. Good Rainy Days Forecasted By CFS in SEP

    (a) Sep – 1

    (b) Sep – 2
