Highest rainfall in South India -- discussion !!

Dear Pradeep,
Chinna Kallar [Coimbatore District] and Devala [The Nilgiri District]gets its maximum rainfall during SW monsoon period only. This time, as has been predicted earlier there will be lesser amount of rainfall during SW monsoon period in the western sides of western ghat where Chinna Kallar and Devala are located. This is an indication. Your pre- monsoon (up to 7.5.2010) study somewhat depicted rainfall pattern especially during SW monsoon period. However Kanyakumari district is also known for its copious rainfall. The western side of the district will easily get more than 1500mm annual rainfall. Some of the locations in the hills like Upper Kothaiyar, Balamore etc are getting rainfall greater than 2500mm [upper Kothaiyar still gets more rainfall ranging to 3500mm] However upper Kothaiyar has to be accessed by road from Ambasamudram only.
Hence Chinna Kallar or Devala overtaking the toppers before May end is LESS probable only.
