    sridharchandra I agree Sir the current position of the lakes are possibly the worst may be since the first half of 2000’s decade which became better since 2005 when Northeast Monsoon went through a above normal cycle till about 2013.
    If you ask me Sir, the best way forward is to look at conserving water as much as possible though with rains failing conservation becomes a nonstarter. You could join us in the main page Sir, this is today’s topic a few of us discuss about weather provide live updates etc https://www.chennairains.com/deep-depression-to-intensify-into-cyclone-in-arabian-sea/

    Thanks for your response Mr. Srikanth. The biggest worry for Chennai which has more than 10 million inhabitants is supply of water. I checked Chennaimetrowater.com  website and the water position is bleak and perhaps the lowest I have ever seen in the last 2 decades. If monsoon fails, we are in for a really torrid time in 2016! With Karnataka completely stopping Cauvery water, Veeranam lake will run completely dry by early 2016. Therefore augmenting Chennai’s water supply from Veeranam is also not an option! Really worried about NE Monsoon not hitting North TN, esp. Chennai city.

    Sir there is still some decent chance of October ending well for us. Please be patient. As things stand long term model forecasts look good for South TN while North TN could see normal rains.

    Now it is 7:35 PM on 28th October 2015. Our eager anticipation of copious showers in Chennai has now turned into despair and dismay as the entire day today (28 October 2015) has turned out to be dry and even hot! As a long-time resident of Chennai, I have never seen NE Monsoon not starting the entire month of October. This really doesn’t sound good for Chennai. Request your inputs on whether November can be any better?

    This is anews aberration for sure

    Sir welcome to Comk please join us in the main page where you can discuss with other whet bloggers. https://www.chennairains.com/low-pressure-in-bay-of-bengal-but-all-eyes-on-arabian-sea/ is todays topic

    I think low pressure area formed in Arabian sea has further moved west; Now it seemingly does not assume any significance except that it would further drift the accumulated moisture away from India. Whether my prediction would be correct?

  • moorthysm1966

    One of the most critical factors (worrisome) is that this year the cyclo-genesis has occurred in the lowest-ever latitude. I believe that normally lowpressure area is formed above 12deg North. Why now it has started below Srilanka? what would be further trend

    I have COMK now on a happy note of commencement of NE monsoon
