Rain Action shifts to West Coast

Yesterday’s Deep Depression that lay over Vidarbha and adjoining areas has moved in a westerly direction in the last 24 hours and is now located over Vidarbha and adjoining areas of West MP.As it continues its westerly movement, heavy to very heavy rains are likely to occur over Konkan & Goa, Saurashtra and Kutch along with parts of Gujarat. The remnants of Vamco, a tropical storm with origins in the South China Sea, has anchored a low pressure system over areas adjoining Andaman Sea and East-Central Bay. This would cause heavy rains in the Andaman Islands. North coastal districts of TN and south AP can expect some Rain/Thundershowers.

02. Meteosat5a

Chennai will see a partly cloudy sky with the day time maximum staying close to 36 C. A chance of rain towards the late hours persists.

Coimbatore will stay partly cloudy and the maximum temperature will stay close to 32-33C

Madurai will continue with its heat index soaring to the high thirties inching closer to 40 C.

Vellore will experience a fairly clear sky with the day time high settling close to mid-thirties. Isolated rains can occur in some pockets

Trichy will stay hot and sunny with a maximum temperature close to 37 C

  1. Yesterday widespread reached 15mm in several area of chennai. This way if continues September team reach its goal

  2. Many of them getting carried away by seeing the convection in bay is from vamco system..actually vamco remnant as lpa has an area of convection in it but not such a big rainband or a wide area of convection.. there is an hpa in vietnam/s.china sea extending into s.east bay causing high pressure gradient in parts of bay,forcing the atmosphere to produce deep convection/high winds along the regions where the interaction of HPA and low pressure trough happening.. Below pics shows the synoptic causing action

  5. It appears Trivellore close to Chennai swallowed bulk of our SWM quota this year thereby denying legitimate due of Chennai. Is there anyone who can give total rainfall during this SWM this year

  6. got near exact answer for yesterday rain……south of nagari got rain around 30.5-40.5
    yesterday i predicted 35.562 mm…..looking at the pac chart i felt happy……hope it will be useful to pre-tell the amount of rainfall and the time it rains

  7. Portblair 105mm, bit unfortunate mumbai missed hvy rains.. Expected vry hvy rains dint happen even in gujarat it seems frm the initial reports

  8. FORMULA 1:
    to calculate the time it will rain=>
    time of rain(T)=( ( (length of the TS band(in kms)) *(RF FACTOR OF MAP IN RADAR) ) / (SPEED OF THE TS( in km/hr))
    amount of rain=((RAIN RATE(in mm/hr))* (TIME OF RAIN(in hr) ) )
    to convert cm into kms use 1cm=(1/100000)kms
    FORMULA 2:
    distance of lightning = 0.34*(time taken between lightning and thunder(sec))
    FORMULA 3:
    Using kinematics we can also derive the height of clouds from the ground and length of clouds

  9. by using the volume integral we can estimate the amount of water in the cloud


    we can have volume from the above formula

    density of water=1000 gm/cc


    volume of cloud was published yesterday…

    mass refers to total water present in the cloud….how much water will come if it precipitates…

    hope this will be useful….

  10. our NEM sister town in south AP i.e nellore has managed 40 CM since the start of the year. it has got 375 mm in swm. great going nellore. normal is only 275mm but it got 375mm

  11. Good afternoon folks
    From 21/22nd wind direction will be from SE…. So I’m expecting a dry phase for Chennai for the next fortnight. No major rains expected till NEM. However, surface westerlies would persist until SWM withdraws completely in October.

  13. want to know how much rainshadow effect in your place?? during SWM??
    then you may use this formula:
    %rain=( (average rainfall at your place*100)/(average rainfall at a place along west coast))
    % rainshadow=(100-(%rain))
    RAIN AVERAGE IN MANGALORE(reference point)= 2935MM
    %RAIN=(625*100)/2935 = 21.2%
    which means 21.2% of mangalore rains converges somewhere in between and creates rainfall in chennai……
    and we are living in 78.8% rainshadow region of SWM …..which means somewhere the hills are blocking and making the chennai rainshadow

  14. Hurricane Fifi-orlene was renamed Orlene after crossing Mexico and merging with another Pacific storm. The hurricane caused tremendous damage across Mexico and left 8,200 people dead in 1974.

  15. The fresh cyclonic circulation in the Bay of Bengal has intensified
    into a low pressure area and is in the process of getting more
    The system is presently marked over northwest and adjoining east-central Bay of Bengal, off the West Bengal and Odisha coas

  16. Why there is a late surge in SWM every year and not getting withdrawal in time? I think the withdrawal line is struck for long period from extreme NW India..
