Another disapointing day (20-Nov-08)

A humid morning (20-Nov-08) with lot's of cloud formations.
Even some clouds dissipated after crossing main land chennai... and towards west-north-west.
A low pressure trough near srilanka has brought more rains to south & south-south tamilnadu. Even nilgiris is receiving more rain.
Look at this rainfall readings..(8:30 AM, 20-Nov-08)

Even Maduranthagam has got 2 cm of rain.
Unfortunately we did not get anything.
This bad run of "NO rains" will bring drought like conditions very early into coming summer.

Today (21-Nov-08) going by satellite pic...

WE can see NO traces of yesterday's Low pressure trough.
Here the cloud formations has gone down.
And worst part is we had a cold morning with DEW drops on leaves.
Now (9:31 AM) it's partly cloudy and no sign of rain..
Going to be a dry day.
