Warmer than Normal Pongal Day Ahead for Tamil Nadu

On the day when the Sun starts its journey back towards the Northern Hemisphere we wish all our well wishers a Happy Pongal / Makara Sankranthi.  COMK takes the opportunity to salute the real unsung heroes “Farmers” on the occasion of the harvest festival by invoking the very famous couplet from ஒளவையார்

வரப்பு உயர நீர் உயரும். நீர் உயர நெல்உயரும். நெல் உயர குடி உயரும். குடி உயர கோல் உயரும். கோல் உயர கோன் உயர்வான். Amidst the era of globalization &  commercialization this couplet becomes more relevant in understanding Farmers as the most important cog in all our lives to whom we possibly owe a lot more than what we think.  இந்த பொங்கல் நன்னாளில் சென்னையில் ஒரு மழைகாலம் வானிலை வலைபதிவாளர்கள் அனைவர் சார்பிலும் இந்த ஆண்டு வரப்பு உயர வேண்டும் என சிரம் தாழ்ந்து வாழ்த்துகிறோம்.

We at COMK will continue our best efforts to provide clear, simple weather inferences to our farmers so that they are better prepared against the Vagaries of Weather

Weather conditions in the state is likely to be warm and dry for the next few days with numerical models expecting a warmer than normal day time temperatures and near normal night time temperatures right through the Pongal festival period.  With no synoptic features to influence the weather at least for the next week or so rains are unlikely to happen which could augur well for those farmers who plan to undertake their harvesting activities after the euphoria of Pongal dies down.
