The rains are widespread across Chennai with ECR belt and Chennai city getting heavy rains. The preliminary rainfall figures are given below. Chennai city witness it wettest one day May month rainfall since 1995. During Cyclone Laila on 20th May,2010, Chennai city got 110 mm, thats broken now. Cyclone Laila in total gave 190 mm to Chennai.

Drizzling Rains to continue for a while. Sad this Ooty like climate will not be there in a day or two in Chennai. People should enjoy these type of heavy rains, not all heavy rains will become December 1st (i know its easy to say only people who got affected will know the fear). Its goodbye time for the Deep Depression and possibly it will become Cyclone as it moves up.

If any intense bands comes close to Chennai, i will put an update. Goodbye till then....How many more years we have to wait to see another May month monsoon type rains in Chennai ?
