Long range forecasts show some unusual early season #Cyclone activity over the coming 16 days in the West Pacific and Bay of Bengal.

In particular a storm is shown developing in the Bay of Bengal - traversing the BoB before reversing direction and heading back due East.
The impact of this reversal is remarkable and has potentially positive results in relation to two cyclones which are shown here spinning up on either side of the Phillipines. At the end of this 16-day animation you can see them suddenly reversing direction and heading NE.
The cause of this unusual activity appears to be related to high temperatures/high pressure over the Arabian Sea. In this Water Vapour Transport animation you can see the forecast reversal of wind/water vapour direction taking place over Southern India 12-13 April.

Extremely heavy rainfall alert for #Chennai

Close to 200+ mm rainfall is expected in most places in the city overnight.

#ChennaiRains #ChennaiRain #ChennaiRains2021 #ChennaiFlood #Chennai1913 #chennaiairport #ChennaiCorporation #TamilNaduRains #TamilNadu #TamilnaduRainUpdate
I am still seeing messages where people are asking whether it would rain as it is being "hyped". Please note that if it doesn't happen we would be the happiest.

But unfortunately - the blogging community on the whole is of the same opinion that there would be heavy rains
Not only Chennai

#Kanchipuram #Chengalpattu #Kallakurichi #Villupuram #Cuddalore #Nagapattinam #Karaikkal #Pondicherry #Ranipet #Thiruvallur #Vellore and even #Krishnagiri should be on high alert as the system is expected to move inland

Now that the #rain has stopped for a while in #Chennai, it is time that we get to know what we can expect this week.

1. A Low-pressure area will likely form in the next 2 days in the Southeast #BayofBengal region.

2. Owing to favourable conditions this will further intensify.
3. Preliminary analysis suggests that this system will likely intensify as deep depression and would move towards Coastal #TamilNadu

4. Possibility of this system intensifying into a cyclone exists. Which means a named #cyclone is a possibility
5. Assuming that it becomes a named cyclone, this would be named "#Jawad" named by #SaudiArabia

6. The track that it is likely to take is that it will climb up Northwest - intensify near the coast and move lateral west in between #Chennai and #Pondicherry

@ipcc_ch reports that b/w 1971 & 2010, oceans absorbed over 90% of the heat gained by the planet due to #globalwarming. This led to #sealevel rise and has also resulted in higher frequency & intensity of #cyclones worldwide. #ClimateChange #MumbaiMustPrepare @mumbaismagic
Indian Ocean has also warmed but what is worrying is the higher rate of #warming in comparison to other global ocean basins. Data shows that Indian Ocean’s rapid basin-wide warming of ~1degC over the last 60 yrs exceeds that of the global average of ~0.7 degC. #MumbaiMustPrepare
Arabian Sea & Bay of Bengal have also seen consistent warming in past decades. The trend in rise in sea surface temperature for BoB has been 0.16C/decade & 0.18C/decade for AS. Arabian Sea indeed has been warming quite rapidly and impacts are for us to see. #MumbaiMustPrepare

@deekshith_np On May 20, 2020, the Super Cyclone Amphan ripped through West Bengal killing 128 people and became the costliest cyclone on record in the North Indian Ocean after destroying properties worth ₹1 lakh crores.

#BayOfBengal #cyclone #CycloneYaas
@deekshith_np On May 3, 2019, Extremely Severe Cyclone Fani wreaked havoc across #Odisha and #WestBengal, killing 89 and causing nearly ₹60,000 crores in damages.

People along the west coast of India are slowly picking up pieces of their lives scattered & shattered by #CycloneTaukte.
Exactly a year ago, on May 20, #CycloneAmphan had hit the Sundarbans. People are still displaced.

Sabita Rani’s last memory of her home was the clock on the wall which told her it was 6 pm. It was on the evening of May 20, 2020, that her home in Hajatkhali village was swept away in the fury of #CycloneAmphan. A year on, she is still displaced.

Khulna, Satkhira & Bagerhat dists on the southwest coast of Bangladesh were the hardest hit by #Cyclone Amphan. About 500,000 people were affected. There are lingering signs of devastation. Villages lie in ruins. Many continue to live on embankments.

#CycloneAmphan was the most expensive #cyclone of 2020 and the fourth most expensive natural disaster overall

Cyclone #Burevi to Cross Sri Lanka and Hit India’s Southern Tip on Thursday Night; Tamil Nadu, Kerala Under Alert

#cyclone

weather.com/en-IN/india/ne…

By- @deekshith_np

(📸: TWC Met Team)
On Wednesday night last week, #CycloneNivar drenched several parts of north Tamil Nadu and south Andhra Pradesh. Exactly a week later, #CycloneBurevi is set to cause torrential downpour over southern Tamil Nadu and Kerala
#Burevi is a name suggested by the Maldives, as per the #cyclone naming guidelines set by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO). #Burevi is not as strong as its predecessor, #Nivar, as the Bay of Bengal lacks the energy to feed the system further.

Today severe cyclone Nivar will hit eastern coast of India. In 12 seconds learn how coastal green shelter belts check tsunami & cyclones. Dutch research institute Deltares.
We are facing one more #cyclone today. So let me remind you. #Mangroves;

- acts as buffer & reduce impact of cyclones & #storm surge.
- they break the #wind force
- provide #habitat to #animals during cyclone or otherwise
- they reduce #pollution.

We just need to protect them.
So how it works. Mangroves create a maze & dense habitat. With species which are salt tolerant & have special adaptations. They act like buffer & which slow down wind & consume energy. So after passing, the storms get dampen. You must have read in ‘Theory of Vibration’.

50 years ago today was the Bhola cyclone, one of the deadliest tropical storms in world history. It killed up to half a million people in what was then East #Pakistan, and triggered the #Bangladesh liberation war
The Pakistani authorities were negligent & frankly unconcerned about the devastation in their eastern wing. (A bit like President Trump's response to #hurricane Maria in #PuertoRico). Weeks later they held the first democratic election in #Pakistan's history
East Bengali nationalists Awami League @albd1971 campaigned against the failures of the Pakistani state & won one of the most stunning democratic victories ever.

They are prop roots. In #mangrove #ecosystem they are adventitious support roots. They Grow down from lateral branches, in a way support trees, with doing other root functions. Additionally roots buffer against damage to coasts & enhance biodiversity & carbon sequestration.

A depression over southeastern & adjoining east-central Arabian Sea this morning will likely turn into a severe cyclonic storm #Nisarga by June 3 mausam.imd.gov.in/backend/assets…
By June 3, the storm is likely to hit coastal areas in northern Maharashtra & southern Gujarat b/w Harihareshwar in Raigad district and Daman, with wind speeds of 90-100 kmph & gusting 110 kmph. These regions are on pre #cyclone alert
Very-heavy to extremely-heavy rainfall is expected in parts of both of these states and fishers have been advised to stay away. This would be the 2nd cyclone to hit India this year, 13 days after the super cyclone #Amphan lashed parts of West Bengal & Odisha on May 20

Time for countdown: my Top 10 chases of 2010s! I've got lots of war stories, & it hurt to limit myself to 10. Criteria varied, ranging from intensity to fear factor to footage coolness to quality of my data. Rankings are subjective, & y'all may hate my decisions. Ready? Let's go!
No. 10: #Typhoon #KAMMURI
Dec 2019 – Legazpi City, PHILIPPINES – Cat 4
Intense Christmastime cyclone slammed Filipino port city. Despite nighttime darkness, I caught some of my best footage of combo wind/water assault on waterfront. Bonus: weirdly violent wave action in calm eye.
My timestamped footage from #KAMMURI. The real pounding (in the front eyewall) happens from ~11:16 pm to ~12 midnight. Wind & water become one ferocious flow of energy ripping in off the gulf:
