Discuss weather from the garden city in this page
First post 🙂 drizzles in Kasturi nagar blore
Raining heavily in sahakarnagar for the last 15mins..
Not fair. North blore getting all the rains 😦
did koramangala get any rains today?
Might have got 2 spells today…. one in the evening around 4:30pm and another around 8pm….
Missing Bangalore rains already
U missed hail storm today 😦
my house felt like an oven when I entered
I too missed the hail today in sahakaranagar!! long time since I saw one…. bad luck, some work came up in s.blore and i had to go there 😦
That’s his luck… Let’s see how Nunga going to get anything
Pouring with light n sound show here 🙂
pouring from the last 20-22 mins…. atleast 15mm here…. RR is between 40-70mm/hr i guess….
Yes.. could be same here too.. now down to light rain
yes same here… reduced…. looks like a small storm…. radar is showing only drizzles now all around….
Must have slowed down there also looking at radar. Expected few storms from east to reach here. But they dissipated 😦
yes i was thinking the storm might spread, but looks like it is dissipating…. next one is pretty far away from bangalore….
Thr is one strong far north east. Will mostly dissipate
Slowly picking up speed here
Good….. i think all bangalore areas will get some good spell tonight….
Still only light rain.
Another monster storm seems to be coming here..but again that also could weaken
Is it moving south
Would be awesome if storm to east and north east merge into a giant storm 🙂
Haha..thats too much for asking i guess 🙂
Massive band approching bangalore…will it sustain intensity
Hope it does..but very less chances only
Hw much today in hour?
How many mm this May?
Rains picked up here
Steady ones not heavy
wind from NE side.. With moderate drizzle since 1 hour in jp nagar..
Weather online did not update city imd rainfall today for 8.30 pm as well as for 5.30pm..This is the first time it has happened I guess
Steady drizlle at JP nagar
I have been following Keaweather for quite sometime as weather is one of my personal interest. I was in Chennai for long time and recently moved to Bangalore.Placed in ACES Layout. I observe sea change in weather, that too this year seems to be relatively more rains.
Oh nice..Welcome..ya this year Blore has received way above normal rains..btw ACES or AECS layout ?
There are so many AECS layout in bengaluru..can u tell me exactly which area exactly..even I stay near Aecs layout in bhoopasandra
AECS Layout near Marathahalli, East Bangalore
14mm from that second spell in sahakaranagar, slightly less than what I expected…. total 53mm for today…. light drizzle continues….
Very good day for us 🙂
Yes.. super day.. my rg total for the year is now 425mm.. we might get some 2-3 days of good rain the coming week right?
Great come back by our places :).. Yes till june 5th we can get good rains
Banaswadi at 39cm for the year. We lost out in may badly to north 😦
Hosur 5mm only
Heavy lightning to east of cbe..hop v get somthing from this
How much rain in Bangalore today?
52 mm in hebbal, sahakarnagar areas in North Blore.. There were severe hail storms here in North Blore today..city imd data still not available
Yuktix aws hebbal got arnd 64mm today!!!
Heavy rain brings Bengaluru to its knees again
The strong winds accompanying the heavy rains brought down several trees across the city. The trees damaged electricity poles.
Heavy rain on Sunday brought the city to its knees once again and exposed its poor infrastructure. The worst hit was Yelahanka and Vidyaranyapura areas, where the squall in the evening brought down more than 45 trees and branches.
While Yelahanka did not see much rain, the wind speeds there touched 76 kmph (according to Air Force Base there) around 4.35 p.m.
The core city also saw winds that touched a peak of 54 kmph. Overall, the city saw at least 70 trees or their branches falling down, said the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) control rooms, which remained under a deluge of complaints on Sunday evening.
Apart from Yelahanka, neighbouring Darahalli zone saw eight trees falling; five tree-falls were reported in Jayanagar and Banashankari areas; three in Sanjayanagar; two in R.T. Nagar, two around K.R. Puram, among others. Trees falling on vehicles were also reported in some of these areas. A huge hoarding was reported to have collapsed at Varthur.
A huge tree came crashing down at the busy Anil Kumble Circle, completely blocking one side of M.G. Road. Though the traffic police had to redirect vehicles through alternative routes, the vehicular pile-up on either side added to the frustration of weekend shoppers.
Nearby, a tree-fall blocked parts of Lavelle Road; while a fallen branch saw traffic piling up close to High Grounds police station. Though Sunday evening saw fewer vehicles on the road, traffic was severely affected on major roads. Adding to the chaos was the inundation of underpasses and railway under bridges.
With at least nine trees in north Bengaluru falling on electricity poles, power supply disruptions were common in areas stretching from Kodigehalli and Banaswadi to HRBR Layout, said Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom)
Rained heavly for 5min now
How did u get this format?
I think it may have come in news paper..I have seen like that before
Banaswadi 31mm beniganahalli 20mm city 24mm
We got only 4mm in night spell whereas city got 15mm+
Yuktix aws hebbal 71mm wow!! , gkvk 53.5mm!.radakrishna ward ksndmc 41mm it seems,surely it is undereporting nowadays 😦
Many KSNDMC rain gauges have begun under-reporting I think or dont work well…. Just sent a mail to KSNDMC requesting them to check Byatarayanapura (which is reporting 50% less from last 1 week), Kodigehalli and Doddabommansandra RGs 🙂 I cannot believe how Kodigehalli RG can report only 43mm yday when RGs within 1 km radius on either side of it have got 53mm and 71mm….
In above post, by 53mm I am referring to my RG’s reading and not GKVK’s 🙂
Sid, I think ur rg under ported yesterday due to heavy winds all through the rain
ya may be…. yday there were terrible winds it seems…. saw 2 trees fallen down 2-3 roads away from my house…. Trees dont fall as frequently in sahakarnagar as they are relatively younger compared to other older areas of bangalore….
Beniganahalli at 354mm and banaswadi at 380mm for the year.. Even hal has overtaken beniganahalli now.. Beniganahalli has badly missed last few rains looks like..
You need to have ur RG setup soon, may be ur place has actually got more rain 🙂 somehow i have lost some confidence in KSNDMC RGs….
Yeah… Would take another 6 months.. by which time it would be winter here 😦 for next summer i would have them for sure..
I am also confused which RG should I take as my reference.. beniganahalli or banaswadi.. from banaswadi bbmp is only 1km or so from my house.. but few days it recorded much more than my place and few days much lesser than my place.. Only my own RG would provide an answer..
Got a prompt reply from KSNDMC Director Dr.G S Srinivasa Reddy for the mail that I sent in the morning to them. He said he will look into my concerns 🙂
Oh nice :)..Wat happened to ur earlier mail abt kodigehalli rg..didn’t get reply for that ?
no didnt get any reply for that…. so included that issue again in today’s mail too…. hopefully they’ll check and address it….
Karnataka Top 5 till now this year as per IMD –
1. Bangalore city – 48cm
2. Mysore – 40cm
3. Chintamani – 38cm
4. Bangalore HAL AP – 35cm
5. Hassan – 33cm
For next few days bangalore will top after that it’s big giants time 🙂
Mangalore or Honnavar may be the one to overtake Bangalore first 🙂
Yes that’s for sure
oh mysore 40 ?..didn’t notice at all!!
Yes, most SI KTK districts have good too much excess rain except Mandya….
Wat a memorable summer this has been 🙂
Relative humidity is only at 45-50% in north bangalore yuktix AWS stations where as it is around 70% in South and South East bangalore yuktix AWS stations…. does it mean south bangalore has more chances of rain today?
Hmm nice observation.. but no idea about that for me..
Some storm popped up right over se Blore. ..so high humidity helped the storm to pop up there 🙂
Looks like it’s raining heavily in hal ap or nearby it
storms look to be moving N to S today and N is clear 😦
Heavy drizzles for past 5 mins here..more rain towards nw of here
its raining heavily in Marathahalli (this is posted in the other page)
Yes saw that
Yuktix AWS in HSR also recording rain….
Yes..6.5mm in 4 mins
Hsr layout getting super rains 😦
Rained heavily for 15 minutes near Bellandur. May be around 20-30 mm.
Wow nice..yesterday also ur place got good rains
Yeah yesterday we got around 30 mm.
Absolutely nothing here 😦
It was a very localized storm but strong one. So only few places would have got good rainfall.
Yes it was isolated
Yeah saw radar now.. We did not even have any signs of rain here.. We are missing out on rains big time.. hope monsoon compensates.. like how we got a 10cm last october start (or september end i forgot)
20-30mm in just 15 minutes?
Yes, it was a strong TS. It developed overhead.
My observation (may be wrong) – when the storm movement is from N to S instead of E-NE to W-SW, then north bangalore is missing out on heavy rains…. happened 3-4 days during April too….
After 8 pm, 700 hpa winds ( TS are driven by 700 hpa winds) are changing and will be from NE to SW.
Oh thats nice..good to have experts like u here 🙂
No storms to NE as of now but
Yes..New ones may form
TS may develop after evening. As per GFS forecast UAC will be moving inland after two days. So we can expect good rainfall for next 5-6 days.
Oh Circulation right over Blore. .but will it happen?
Yes but to pinpoint the exact location will be difficult. UAC will be moving inland in coming days. It will trigger severe TS over SI Kar, SAP, TN. Here’s the precipitation accumulation from GFS for next five days. We can get between 100-150 mm.
Oh ok thanks..
It just might be coincidence I feel..even we have got quite a few heavy rains wen storm movement was N-S
hmm yes sep 2013 is an example when most of the storms were coming from N-NW and we got 40+cm…. but atleast in summer i have observed this….
Yes I remember..on all days storms came from Nnw and we got rains and yelahanka iaf kept missing continously
Strong tstorms in krishnagiri district
Storms rushing towards JP nagar with thunders
Wow nice pic
Which direction ?
Storms moving south no rain in JP nagar I phase…but raining heavily in bannergahtta road meenaksi mall
Yes N to S
Heavy rains for last 20 mins in E city. Temp must have plunged big time. It is really cool now with loud thunders. Strangely the sky is not at all dark and very clear and bright .
Yes here also clouds weren’t that dark towards SE Wen it was raining there
The light is coming from west with little clouds but the Stroms are in east
Heavy rain started at JP nagar I phase from another storm coming from north…very heavy rain
Pouring cats and dogs
There is no signs of rain here ..enjoy
I think still there is stii lot of moisture is there to condense wait for second round…..
Hal ap only 4mm till 17.30 lol..desert rocking
How to get the rainfall figure for Bellandur. KSNDMC do not have RG for Bellandur. Arakere got 21mm. It must be around 20 mm here.
actually KSNDMC has 2 rgs in bellundur..Bellandur 1 got 43mm and bellandur 2 got 43mm yesterday
you can see from this link..
Oh Thanks. I am facing problem in filling up the form. Select Taluka and hobli not working.
At first u select some other district n again select bangalore urban then it ll work , then select hobli and from time period select date wise and in both u put today’s date
Got it. Thanks.
That is still better than 0 here
Rains stopped in JP nagar
Storms remaining south of blore… Nothing to north yet..
We got 17mm in 10 min from today’s evening spell. RR was around 102mm/hr.
Kea – just as I had got used to posting on main page about blore weather and started enjoying it you moved us to a seperate page again 😦 Why this kolaveri.. I know I had only posted once when you had removed the seperate page asking why you removed it. Now I am asking why this separate page.. makes it difficult to track two pages at once..
Massive downpour in hosur….6cm easily possible
Today is south of blore day
Yes yesterday we missed but we got today ….raods flooded still raining…..may be 10 cm also….no power…gusting winds may be 60 to 70 kmph…
Wow u are making up for may compared to blore now.. wish my area also has one such day
24mm till 6.30PM as per AWS
It always shows less
U got already in may….we didnt get any thing…just 80mm…tat
My area still lagging city by 9cm..
HAL airport lagging city by 15 cm.
13 i think 🙂 Beniganahalli also lagging by about 13cm.. banaswadi by around 9-10cm
How much city got till now..
HAL AP 35cm
Yes hail stoms today….till yesterday…we got 39cm
39 cm inspite of only 80mm in may?
Yea beautiful april …13cm in one night..
248mm in april
On that day …bangalore..i rhink 7cm
No city got only 4mm that day.north and east bangalore got good rains
Wait…still two days there ..we have great chance…..we should have great finish
Missed last 2 days of rains in S Bangalore!! Hope to catch up tomorrow!!
Yes not two days one day
Rains are moving further south of blore.. I doubt if anything new will pop up today..
Less …chance …but sure tomorrow afternoon
I still have glimmer of hope..let’s see
Moderate rains again lashing
Hosur to Salem stretch getting battered 😦
may be tomorrow is our day again! 🙂
For the next 2 days 700 hpa winds will be from N to S only acc to earth null. so storms also will move from N- S only..so going by ur theory north Blore will miss out for next 2 days 🙂
Still raining…in hosur
Big day predicted for Chennai tomorrow. Hope the rain shifts from Bangalore to here for a day atleast.
Conditions looks perfect for ts today unlike yesterday
conditions no longer looking perfect due to stupid high clouds 😦
Arakere-23mm , bellandur 17mm, bilekahalli 16.5mm ,koramangala 11mm ,marathalli 11mm
yashwanthpur(abbigere area actually) 10mm, the highest in north bangalore…. i think you had posted yday evening that there were some heavy rains NW of your house, it seems to have fallen here….
Yes it was isolated storm..It gave drizzles in my place too for 5 mins
TS developing over NE of Bangalore.
movement seems to be from NNW to SSE right? we might miss it….
Are sure about nnw to sse movement?
No. For Bangalore its from NE to SW. For Chennai its NNW to SSE.
TS are driven by 700 hpa winds.
oh ok…. sometime back in radar animation i saw one storm to the west of bangalore also move from NW to SE, so i thought thats going to be direction….
thunderstorms towards nw
but N and NE seems to be clear 😦
That storm moved south very very slowly..so we need storms to form towards North very nearby or overhead which is not likely as of now 😦
Thick low moving clouds from west to south are started… Rain is expected at JP nagar
hosur..45cm this …year
Nice 🙂 bangalore 48cm :)..good year so far for both places 🙂
Who said?..its 48cm only…day before yesterday we got 3cm know
typo ..error…sorry…yesteday no rains there…here 6cm
What’s the annual rainfall of hosur?
average of nearly86-90cm
ok ….but now a days we r getting more than that
The clouds from UAC at Arabian sea and BOB meets at Bengaluru tonight…. Expect record rains tonight….???
really but no singns for that
Clouds from both are 100kms away….
lets take charge tonight….wait for record rains
what makes above normal rainfall for last four years…..see this time also nearing 50cm in may itself
Heat energy in bengaluru skies is not dissipatred yet…
Dasanapura in NW Bangalore has got 45mm today!!
From yesterday rains are intense where ever it is raining.. hope we get hit by onegood ts today.. We ll get good numbers
A tiny popup in Bangalore south should watch…?…..storms at kolar enlarging…should see whether they reach Bangalore east?
Yes..let’s see where it moves..my guess is it ll go down south..Our best chance is storms towards n or nne of us
Any how it can’t travel beyond bengaluru…. Some rain is expected
Oh no, saw the radar after 2hrs..not much positives..I was hoping that there would be some storms near Blore 😦
is the storm is moving west? if yes then we may get some non stop showers by tonight.
Nne to ssw I think
its is moving very very very slowly
A branch is going towards hosur
Even hosur may miss that..But again it can trigger new pop ups wen it weakens..let’s see where that new pop ups form
steering winds from south west may block it to moving the storms further south west. correct me if i am wrong
No there is no sw winds..only lower level winds are from w..that will not have any impact to the storm..700 hpa Winds are from nne
Storm traveled large distance.. May be losing steam…if kadapa branch joins then some rain possible
Yes it is present from long time..may start to weaken anytime
If it doesn’t rain at least 1cm tonight , then we r very unlucky…lots of storm around..surprising that there isn’t anything forming N/Nne of us 😦
I doubt if it will rain 😦
No rain 😦 any chances today?
clouds starting to form and there is good heating…. hopefully there will be rain today 🙂
Yeah good chances today I feel
How much hosur got yesterday Adithya??
Krishnagiri might had more rains as rains suddenly started moving south

West blores day
The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD), also known as the Indian Nino—caused by the difference in sea surface temperature between parts of the western and eastern Indian Ocean—is expected to remain positive.
A positive IOD would mean greater chances of rainfall in the Indian subcontinent and counters the El Nino effect. In 1997, for instance, an El Nino effect that threatened to disrupt India’s monsoons was countered by a positive IOD.
“The temperature in the Arabian Sea has been above the normal so far and we think that this can cause a positive IOD. That would balance the El Nino effect and in turn bring good rain fall.” Palawat said.
The IMD, however, believes that there’s “about 50% probability of neutral IOD conditions to continue during the monsoon season.”
Skymet is also convinced that the chances of a back-to-back drought season are slim, given that India suffered a mild drought last year. “In the last century, back-to-back droughts have happened only three times,” Jatin Singh, CEO of Skymet, told Quartz. “Once in the 1904-05, 1966-67 and in 1985-86-87.”
“So, the chances of a back to back drought is only 3% and we believe that it won’t occur this year. We also relied upon our modelling techniques to come to that conclusion,” he added.
India’s monsoon rains are now finally expected to hit the southern state of Kerala on June 05, five days after it was expected to make landfall. By September, it’ll be clear who was right.
Pre-monsoon activities have begun over the region and meteorological department has predicted monsoon to arrive by June 15. Weather scientists, however, said El Nino threat over India may result in 7% less than average rainfall in 30 years.
“Pre-monsoon activities have begun due to moisture incursion from Arabian Sea. The system, which was weak earlier, is becoming stronger and holds promise to deliver monsoons on time in state. However, confirmed reports can only be given after monsoon sets in Kerala,” said Indian meteorological department state branch director Anupam Kashyapi.
Weather scientists said El Nino effect is responsible for dryness over India and Australia. Warnings have been issued and farmers asked to brace for poor monsoons, added weatherman.
“We have asked farmers to undertake water harvesting seriously and go for crop insurance to deal with unexpected weather conditions. Farmers sowing rice have been suggested to keep two irrigation facilities in hand so that they are not completely dependent on monsoons,” said Kashyapi.
