The cyclonic circulation over Lakshdweep area and neighbourhood persists and now extends upto 1.5 kms a.s.l.

Why is Coonoor getting Heavy Rainfall ?

Coonoor gets its 4th 100 mm rainfall this year. No other place has even come close to Coonoor's spell this year even Kashmir or Himachal. Whys is it Coonoor getting such heavy spells. As you all know why Cherrapunji gets heavy rainfall, the moisture laden South West Monsoon winds gets trapped in the Khasi hills valley and thereby getting legendry rains.

Coonoor as you know is one of wettest place in India during North East Monsoon. The valley is placed such that winds can come into the valley only from east and gets locked. For the past one month, the UAC's are moving from Comrin Sea into Arabian Sea. while they move into Arabian Sea the wind is from east and its moisture gets locked in the Coonoor valley there by creating heavy rains, these rains last only for 1-3 hours. In this short span of it pours with very heavy intensity. The super spells in Coonoor in 2015. In all the 4 cases, it was a UAC moving into Arabian Sea from Comrin Sea.

Hi folks it is gr8 to have asite exclusively dedicated to indian weather, and i an avid sky watcher. I would like to know as to how you manage to get rainfall details of such small towns and remote places?

Pradeep said...

Reghuram, Rains are my passion and compiling rainfall is time consuming and exhaustive. I get these rainfall data from various sources. All are authentic data.

Its for guys like you i do these work.

Siva Kumar said...

Pradeep,
Thanks for your noble work.
I am a Mechanical Engineer and worked in the Big Names of manufacturing industries in middle mgmt position for last 18 years from starting as a GET after my graduation.
Due to the passion towards agriculture I am now becoming a full time farmer. These data arereally very helpful for us to decide some important things. Example is there enough rain and moisture in the ground for new cocunut saplings and decide whether this year rain will fulfill additional inter crops.
So your service is not only helping some peoples hobby but also helping bread butter of many and will support the lifeline of this country - Agriculture.
I am from Theni dist and this year is the best summer for our dist in my experience of weather watching for last 9 years. Elders around us are also telling this is the best summer in terms of rains to their knowledge also.
If you have any compilation in terms of yearly rainfall of particular station Ex. Bodi, Uttamapalayam, Theni in a tabluar format month over month it will help in farmers decision making process. Even if its a raw data of just dates and rainfall I can make this month over rainfall table for last few years and share it back to you. I know its expecting too much from a unknown person and an Indian Farmer needs help from all corner.
Its ok if you dont have the previous years data i have started compiling it from 2014.
Thanks a lot for whatever you are already doing. You are not only giving materials to curious weather watchers but you are helping farmers like me to take a well informed decission.
Thanks
Sivakumar
