Getting warm

On 13-Feb-09, it was the HOTTEST day so far this Year... 35.8 deg.
Nowadays the HUMIDITY has also gone up slightly.
And the MIN temperature has also gone up by 2 deg... it's around 23 deg in the early mornings.
Here is the last 5 days MAX temperature graph plot...

Observe the slowly rising trend.
Winter at it's end... And all signs of "GOOD" summer ahead.
We might have a Electric shower around 1st or 2nd week of March and then we will move into the HARSH summer months.

Latest Sea surface temperature map shows... there's a rise in temperature over the arabian sea along the western coast of India. This will continue to increase in coming months till South-west monsoon.

Equator belt south of India is witnessing lots of cloud formations. These are good signs for Early South-west Monsoon.

Global temperature anomaly for year 2008

Global surface temperature anomaly for December-08

Is the global climate changing?

Yes. But let’s look more closely at what that means. We can start with the time from 1856 to the present. We have a good record of global temperature for this recent period. Accurate temperature measurements were made at many locations around the world.

There have been some sharp year-to-year fluctuations. During some periods, such as the 1940s, there was a drop in global temperature, but the overall trend is up when we look at the past century and a half.

MAX temperature up by 2 deg

During the past 5 days the max temperature was UP by 2 deg... this is a significant change. But the MIN temperature is almost the same at 20/21 degrees... this has remained the same for the past 20 days.
We are almost at the end of short chennai Winter.
This winter was mild and even one can say it's bit colder than the previous year.
Now the max temperature is hovering around 31.8°C
This will increase by another 1 deg after 15-Feb... and will rise to 34 deg around 10-Mar-09.
After that every Chennai person will know, what and how it'll be...:)

Today morning we had some cloud formations over the east-south-east.
Other than this, there will not be any more significant changes in weather for next 3 days.
