Freak Thunderstorms give a miss to Chennai rains
Freak Thunderstorms give a close miss to Chennai rains =========================== Freak cells started moving far away from Machilipattinam and bypassed Chennai to reach Pondy and Cuddalore. As it neared TN border, it took the Tiruvallur route then Kancheepuram, Chengalpet to Pondy and fizzled out nearing Ariyalur border. The cells survived over 12 hours would you belive it, normally their life cycle would be 5 hours max. The clouds were so intense and towered over 15 kms in height. There should been hails in Andhra and intense burst of rains. I remember a similar freak Thunderstorms on May 3rd, 2015 when a storms from Cuddapah almost reached chennai but like today morning, it missed Chennai by taking a detour to Tiruvallur - Sriperumbedur - Madurantagam. The super computers failed to pick the thunderstorms, sometimes very very rarely these storms happen. I have put up the video of radar of the the thunderstorms, you can see urself how intense it was and how it bypassed Chennai. Sadly, its a miss for Chennai, otherwise it would been the most unexpected Thunderstorms to last Chennai in our 15 years of thunderstorm tracking. So lets carryone with another hot day.
