Atlast its going to rain, the rains may start very soon in next one hour. We got it right as there will be No landfall between Pamban and Nagapattinam as predicted by IMD. The system has shifted side to NE of Sri Lanka into open sea now. It will start to move towards North Tamil Nadu coast traversing all along the north coast with Cuddalore to Chennai belt seeing heavy rains. Its a slow moving system and hence will dump heavy rains all along with Pondy, Cuddalore and Chennai all in for a battering. Rains may extend into morning of 18th too.
2004, 2010 and 2016 the six year pattern is set to continue. Every morning i used to get up each morning and see the long range models to see any rains over TN in May for last 2 months. The pressure was literally getting into my head, somehow as usually GoD was kind and intha kathri veyila nammaku ippadi oru system. I dont want to put more Mokkai and will be putting lot of images which are self explanatory.
The rains make get intense at evening / Night so come home from office and relax, if the rains become too heavy there may be some power cuts so better charge your mobile etc and buy candles. Dont even compare this to December 1st event. Athu vera ithu vera. I will try to give updates from office as it happens.
Ithu May month, entha rainuma bonus thaan nammaku….So lets cherish this.
