This will make You Smile Today-before the Cricket WC...

While pundits on both sides of the Palk Straight vouch for their side, IMD Colaba spokesperson has already confused the "pitch experts" and action and dependance on their statement could go awry !

IMD Colaba , in the TOI, dated today, 2nd. April, page 2, last para, under "The Weather Gods will smile Today''- Quote-
--"The temperature reaches its max between 2 pm and 3 pm. The humidity will be high during this time, as it is proportionate to temperatures. So,when the match starts, players will face heat along with humidity.But as the day proceeds, the heat and humidity will decrease."--
Oh! So, the humidity increases in the afternoon, and decreases by evening /night ??
So sorry, Vagaries had put up just the opposite -:))). Should review my meteorology again maybe ?

And, TOI correspondent should come with me to met. classes- Humidity is measured in degrees according to TOI !!

Its sad that not too many people have an understanding of meteorology. I have seen one news presenter of one local tv station here mentioning rainfall in milliliters!
