Posted Sunday Morning:

Severe Cyclone Hudhud, now centerd just approximately 60 kms ESE of Visakhapatnam, is slowly tracking towards land. Even though still at Cat 3 and having devastating winds at estimated 112 knts, 203 kmph, with gusts at 135 knts,  a damaging 250 kmph,,, it is fortunate that the storm has not strengthened more.

On initial landfall, around noon on Sunday, few pockets can get rainfall in excess of 150-175 mms.

With core pressure estimated at 945 mbar, the eye of the storm seems to be ( as seen in image)  "opening into irregularity" before hitting land. 

As the centre is 50 kms away, the Western alf of the system has already crossed land, and the effect in terms of heavy rains and winds is seen along North AP coast. Kalingapatnam recorded 117 mms till 8.30 am Sunday and Vizag 105 mms with winds at around 50 km/hr.

SWM was deficient in entire AP. Even now as NEM eludes, Rayalseema temperatures have soared to 38deg. Cyclone in AP/Orissa boarder however did not produce huge rains - like 300-400mm range (recent lows over NW India gave huge rains to over come deficiency in few spells)- however HUDHUD gave only max 100-150mm range. Hope it gives more rain to coastal AP rather than windy destruction.

SSET wait for Tomorrow. The rain figures are mind blowing.

In South East facing worst scenario with severe cyclone and extreme raining....
In west mercury is exited to touch 40c (real feel may be 42 or more)....

sure Pradeep - as of now we are waiting for NEM to arrive at TN/Rayalseema/Sri Lanka - 4 years of successive failure spells ecological disaster - u are expert for southern regions. By the way Hyderabad (450mm only since june) has not received any rain from HudHud cyclone - same with entire Telangana/Rayalseema - would have been good if strike would have been at TN/Rayalseema. What is your opinion with NEM?

 14th July Good rains tops Mumbai lakes to 29.7%  ! ( Last year this date 29.7%!) Tamhini tops the list by recording 315mms #Khandala: 264 #...
