Thunderstorms to continue over Interior TN

Weather Update
Reading Time: 2 minutes

With each passing day the mood among weather bloggers is gradually increasing with expectation about the onset of Northeast Monsoons. Every run of every available weather model is dissected & discussed threadbare. Different theories are put out on why Model X is reading the situation better than Model Y not to forget many a times weather bloggers tend to put their eggs in one basket, the basket that suits their needs, so you could find two different bloggers from two different parts of the coast trying their level best to convince the other on which scenario is likely to happen because the one closer to their heart seems to be in sync with their expectations.

Finally though it is Nature’s call on how things will pan out. Just like Time & tide waits for none nature also does not quicken or slacken its pace of churning events to suit our interests. It is also that time of the year when the phones start over heating so much, due to the multiple windows / apps / messages by the dozen every minute in the by now lost count of weather groups in WhatsApp, you could possibly use it to iron your clothes in the event you are not able to locate your Iron Box.

But in all fairness to the bloggers, there is not a group anywhere in the country who are passionate about weather as much as the weather bloggers down south. And possibly the most optimistic as well just like how fans of Dhoni think it is never over until the fat lady sings, the weather bloggers never discount any cyclone coming towards their coast irrespective of how it is heading.

While almost all of us wait for the onset of Northeast Monsoon, there is still some unfinished business that is continuing as far as thunderstorm activity goes. With IMD expecting Southwest Monsoon to complete its withdrawal by 26th of October the next couple of days we will continue to see thunderstorms triggered by wind instabilities over the interior parts of TN. It will reman mostly an interior show until we start seeing moisture pushed by Easterlies from Bay post which it is time for those bloggers from Chennai to start singing

  3. Most of the heavy spelle are not recorded in vnr due to lack of rain gauges!

    Rains skipping that areas..
    My place would have got easily 4 cm yesterday..

    Nothing recorded in rg as it is in south west

  4. You are having effective mid latitude wave response produced out of north Bay convection/Indonesia – North Pac. And active convection near SPCZ is creating a wave response in southern hemisphere. Until these two areas of convection settles, there will be very little forward progression of MJO into IO from Africa.

    1. rains starts with butterfly song…mojo effect seen from admin… expecting more chill songs for upcoming awesome days❤️🙏

  5. The cooling horseshoe of southern IO from west AUS is something to keep an eye when forecasting Tropics. This is a trend basically since 2014 where region over AUS is cooling. This may create overhead subsidence over western IO and how it affects Tropics further needs to be seen

  6. Unlike 2016 2017 time we have strong pressure gradient between EPac and MTC. Expect trades to be more stronger in Pacific and re-intensify the Sumatra Indonesia Walker cell. The active SPCZ zone and MJO don’t support a cyclone what GFS shows. A weak system to cross TN is likely solution and at same time South china sea pulse may interact with western trough and head up. Only after these two events we may see established NE monsoon over us.

  7. Since ICON forecast lead time is just 180 hours (which is 8 days), it has just started to pick a circulation like feature off SL coast on Oct 31, may be there will soon be some consensus there, initial trough feature now pushed by most models to Oct 28/29 or later

    1. There is a chance of disturbance around Oct 31 due to kelvin induced WWB, need to see if other models agree, but the onset trough shown earlier starting Oct 26th has been removed and slightly being pushed till Oct 29 even by GFS/GEM now as the shortwave induced by current WD affecting Kashmir fades away

  8. தூத்துக்குடி, விருதுநகர் மாவட்டங்கள் தான் அக்டோபர் மாதத்தில் மழைக் குறைவாக பெற்றவை.

  11. Btw ECM quite consistent on tuty getting first widespread nem spell on 25th night/26th morning ..looks like a good start to them again similar to last 3 years

  12. I have subscribed notifications for “new replies to my comments”. But I’m also getting notifications for other conversations where I’m not part of.. ☺️

      1. I also feel the .ini or php can we tweaked, anyways, wanted to post a video, converting to GIF increases the file size proportionally

      2. Earlier with Disqus the images were getting stored in their servers, now it will be stored in the Chennairains server…already we have added the comment load now to the server which earlier was at discus side. Let me check the load pattern and take a call

  13. Kerala crosses it’s annual NEM tally of 491mm, now at 506mm.
    Kerala has also crossed 500mm for October.

    The highest single day(24hr) rainfall for Kerala in 2021 was on October 16th when a massive 80mm was recorded for the state as a whole.

  14. Rainfall till now :

    Anantnag – 76mm

    Udhampur – 66mm

    Rambagh Srinagar – 34mm

    Srinagar AMFU – 27mm

    Pulwama – 26mm

    Govindpura – 36mm

    Kishtwar – 25mm

    Samba – 21mm

    Shopian – 56mm

    Reasi – 58mm

  15. Like last year, its the same North America vs Europe this year as well :P, may be revenge for Nivar or another loss needs to be seen 😛

  16. ECM looks to be finally converging to ICON solution regarding the shortwave trough influence hampering our initial rainfall chances, ICON has been performing really well with shortwave events and its influence on tropical systems this year across the globe

      1. Personally, I am interested only around/after Nov 1st week or Nov 10, enjoy on/off rains until then, but the influence of CCKW entering WIO now needs to be seen, there is a possibility it gets absorbed to SH again

  17. Thought of updating the leaderboard of the NEM Fantasy contest being played by the bloggers. It is interesting to see how similar set of stations give different results to teams based on how they choose the combination & carefully use the Captain & Super Sub strategy

  18. I agree all of us have got used to Discus & its functionality, especially the live commenting etc. But off late issues with spam comments have forced us to look at alternatives. It may not be as nimble as discus but surely much better from privacy point of view

      1. True. It is scary at times. For me the worst thing was, slowly every moderating tool was being shifted to a paid platform & the first slab was at 99 USD which allowed you to meaningfully moderate.

      1. If you have a WordPress account..try this, login into wp using the button from the comment box…any other method will keep redirecting you to login window only

  19. ♦ Southwest Monsoon has further withdrawn from remaining parts of Northeast India, West Bengal, Odisha; entire north Bay of Bengal and Goa; some parts of
    Andhra Pradesh; remaining parts of Telangana and some more parts of Karnataka and Central Arabian Sea. The Southwest Monsoon Withdrawal Line now
    passes through Lat 18.5°N/Long 94°E and Lat 18.5°N/Long 90°E, Kalingapatnam, Nandigama, Kurnool, Gadag, Majali, Lat 15°N/Long 65°E and Lat
    15°N/Long 60°E
