looking at the current max temperatures along the western coast line , looks like summer is going pick up faster and going to be unbearable.it wont be suprising if the temperatures shoot above 40c in maharashtra by mid of feb or begining of march.

Today, 11th morning, still min temp below freezing (just a bit below freezing today); both min and max set to rise from tomorrow; and as you have mentioned it will certainly rise a more from 14th. J3 should precipitate some rain here; can you quantify how much rain is possible here (here in the city and throughout the country) ? and is colder temperature coming behind J3 ?

There were lot of prediction/ assumptions about chennai to experience wet weather in december, as it was the opposite, both south west monsoon and north east monsoon performance was unsatisfactory this year.

Agree with u Mr.Sam khan. If we go by rain metrics - SE interior India (SE KAR, RAYALSEEMA and many parts of TN) is driest place in India - it is no longer RAJ or GUJ. This trend is observed for last 5 years. Geography academics needs revisit. NEM currents are becoming weaker.

Usually in south summer starts by FEB itself. Infact in BANG temp sizzles by FEB/MAR.
