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.
