No Respite from Heat for Tamil Nadu

Tamil Nadu continues to be under the firm grip of Heat Wave conditions as IMD issued Heat Wave warning for 3rd Straight Day yesterday for Isolated Places in more than 20 districts.  Once again North Tamil Nadu bore the brunt of the unrelenting West / Northwesterly winds.  The early morning thunderstorms along the coast near Chennai that gave some passing spells of light rains to a few areas in the end did not matter as Airport ended up with a hotter day compared to Tuesday while City area notched up 3rd straight 40°C

Things dont look any different today with pretty much similar pattern expected today with most interior places of North Tamil Nadu looking at temperatures exceeding 42 / 43°C while the coastal areas are likely to see temperatures exceeding 40°C.  Almost all models are in sync with very strong Land Breeze to keep the heat wave conditions going across North Tamil Nadu, Coastal Andhra Pradesh and parts of Rayalaseema region.  With clearer skies during the morning there appears no respite today from the extreme early afternoon heat.

While some numerical models indicate a possible spell of light rains and cloudy weather around Chennai during afternoon that could possibly keep the temperature breaking the roof keeping in sync with pattern seen for the past few days the temperature is likely to shoot like “Bat out of Hell” early in the morning making it still an extremely hot day before the cloudy skies / light rains if at all they materialize.  Models indicate sea breeze to set in around 1 PM and is expected to be moderate bringing some respite during the second half of the day though the humidity is going to quite high and expect another uncomfortable night ahead for Chennai. °

      Notable points:
      Along the southwestern coast, this would mean an onset date near June 1.

      “In Kerala, the monsoon could perhaps even arrive a couple of days early,” said Nicholls.

      While there’s concern that a weak tropical system could form in the Bay of Bengal, the most likely impacts are increased rainfall in Bangladesh and northeastern India late next week.

    • Vision

      Today rain brings down temperatures tomorrow?

      • SrikanthK

        Not today’s rain but early morning remnant clouding could influence temperature if it lingers isnt it

        • Akshay

          May be it can reduce the ground radiation but once NW winds return you could get the heat feel still right Sri?

    Note:
    I have taken early morning wind pattern as its not advisable to take late morning onwards as streamlines keep on expanding that can give us false idea in identifying correct ITCZ line.

    When the West Pacific Warm Pool is shallow, the ENSO signal remains neutral & when it spreads East, the heat content picks up pace over Nino 4/3.4.

    2017 more shallow & can be displaced but time is running out already. May be one sniff chance in early June but sustained is doubtful.

      Really? Feels like an oven. No breeze seen.
      The walls are radiating heat. My laptop is burning up. My phone keeps freezing, which is ironic, considering how hot it is 🙂 I had vowed not to use the air-conditioner (for environmental purposes), but looks like my gadgets need it more than I do !
      I don’t remember experiencing heat like this in the near past. Not sure if that is a real observation, or that I am just getting older.
      The one time I do remember this heat was when I visited Bhopal in peak summer, and I couldn’t believe that this kind of heat was even possible.

  • Selvakumar(Raijin)

    Tough fight going between westerlies and sea breeze it seems

    • SrikanthK

      Ding Dong battle going on

    • SrikanthK

      3 times I created a post and deleted in last 10 minutes

  • Harish Kumar

    Nungambakkam currently reading 41.4

    • SrikanthK

      Gone back to 41.7

  • Selvakumar(Raijin)

    41.9 is the max today at Nunga

    • SrikanthK

      Sea breeze effect will soon show I think

      • Harish Kumar

        RH Still 29%..

        • SrikanthK

    • SrikanthK

    • Arun Raja A Kumaraswamy

      How about Meenambakkam?

      • SrikanthK

      • SrikanthK

        Metar shows 42 at 11:30

        • Arun Raja A Kumaraswamy

          How long does it take for Meenambakkam to experience sea breeze?

          • SrikanthK

            Normally an hour later than Nunga

  • SrikanthK

    Sear Breeze moving in this time possibly

    • Venkit PS

      We have sea breeze today better than many other days thus summer. In a way lucky to be close to bay but on the flip side we were the worst hit on the day of Vardha.

  • SrikanthK

    IMD Nunga showing burst of Easterlies nothing showing up in radar yet, may be respite on the cards soon

  • SrikanthK

    Airport Metar at 41

  • SrikanthK

  • SrikanthK

    Going by how things happened yesterday we have another 1 hour at least to go before temperature slows down

  • SrikanthK

    Tight competition between Nungambakkam and Meenambakkam both at 40

      • Ramirao

        how? already pacific jet connection started weakening… no chance for the extended suck-up from IO..Next suck-up might be coming from pacific? :))

        • Akshay

          Wait for weekend E Asian + Mountain torque cycle for Jet extension.

          • Ramirao

  • Srinivas

    Bulls Eye. What is a probable date by which you would not use RED colour in map?

    • SrikanthK

      Tomorrow we could see a lighter shade of red I think but overall till 24th / 25th the reds are going to stay as things stand
