Time to look forward to the long hard summer

Its that time of the year when the weak winter gives way to the long hard summer.  We are in the cusp of the first change of weather for the year 2015.

Places in interior Tamil Nadu have started seeing steady rise in the day time temperatures, while the night time temperature has started to show marginal increase as well.

Salem today saw a maximum temperature of 35.7 degrees, while Tirunelveli has been seeing maximum temperatures around 35 degrees over the last few days.

As things stand its unlikely any major rains can be expected over the next couple of weeks all over the Peninsula.  In the days to come.  The expected total precipitation chart reveals whats in store for us, except for some isolated rains in one or two places almost the entire southern peninsula is going to see dry weather until end of February possibly.
