Almost at the end of SW monsoon

Now that the SW-monsoon air current has almost stopped.
Chennai has began to suffer from high humidity and sultry afternoons.
Some days we will have Electric showers if late afternoons or evenings.
For another 10 days the weather will be like this after that we can see the signs of Northeast monsoon.
I'm expecting a MORE than NORMAL north-east monsoon.
It might start at around 10-Oct-2008.

We have had good rains in all non-seasonal months (June to September).
September average rainfall is 109 mm and now it has recorded 121.00 mm
