Dream August isnt it

By Tamil Nadu Weatherman on 19 Aug 2017 | read
It might have stopped raining in some parts of the state in the case for Chennai, Tiruvallur and Kancheepuram the action is expected to continue but with reduced quantum and isolated spots unlike the past few days.
Tamil Nadu now has got whopping 35% excess rainfall till today for the SW monsoon season. Thoothukudi town and surrounding areas if you can see the normal itself is so less. Its the driest place during SW monsoon in entire even drier than Thar Desert. I have never seen such an active rainfall during August. And rains may slow down a bit, but it will continue.

Yesterday Mountain areas in Ghats started receiving rains. The rains will continue for further two more days. Cauvery catchment areas in Kodagu in Karnataka too will get rains for next 3 days.
Valparai - 110
Chinnakallar - 66
Lower Nirar - 60
Sholayar Dam - 60
Parambikulam - 45

Periyar in Theni too got good spell of rains of 57 mm. Delta and Cuddalore belt too got heavy rains.

The tricky area of Pollachi has good chance to record rains in the next 3 days (incl today) with westerlies picking up. Udumalpet always hit or miss type. Palani too chance of rains.

There is again chance of rains today in the Chennai and surrounding regions of Tiruvallur and Kancheepuram. But not like the past two days, still a decent chance of rains to happen here and there with less widespread and less quantum.

Some said i have exaggerated yesterday night rains. But the truth can be seen in the Rainfall in mm recorded in and around Chennai Region ending 8.30 am on 19.08.2017. Just refer the radar accumulation of rainfall it just shows how intense the rainfall was in North Chennai. Redhills and surroundings was particularly smashed by two spells of heavy rains.
