We don’t pay much attention to the weather news. It is one of the most ignored sections of newspapers and Television news. Weather forecast seems mundane to most of us. However, it is not mundane anymore. There is a weatherman in Tamil Nadu who takes weather seriously and the world takes him seriously as well.
This Tamil Nadu weatherman has an almost cult-like following in the southern state. Pradeep John is a self-proclaimed lover of rain and although he does not have any degree in meteorology, he provides weather information which is followed more closely than Met Department’s.
Pradeep’s Interest In Weather
Tamil Nadu’s weatherman’s interest in weather began when he was 12 years old and witnessed his first cyclone in Chennai.
The floods of 2015 in Chennai was a turning point for Pradeep. During this flood, Chennai witnessed its worst rainfall in over 100 years and people were in a state of panic. When they wanted some guidance and information about the heavy rainfall, the activity on Pradeep’s Facebook page increased rapidly. His posts on the predictions of rainfall went viral and he became an overnight sensation.
Here is the list of Pradeep, the Tamil Nadu weatherman’s reports which were spot on:
On 6th August 2017, Pradeep put out a message regarding an intense 15 minutes rain. And just like his post mentioned, many parts in Chennai received rainfall for only about ten to twenty minutes that day.
Another post made by the Tamil Nadu weatherman was about the Runners of Jawadhu Ultra Run, on 6th August 2017. And it turned out to be true too.
On 4th June 2017, during India vs. Pakistan cricket match, many weatherman followers asked him for his weather forecast, and like always Tamil Nadu weatherman predicted a sunny day with really light rainfall which again came out to be true.
The Tamil Nadu weatherman is famous for his correct predictions which are concise and easily understandable by the common people. He has a huge social media following which is not seeing any signs of reducing. Tamil Nadu weatherman facebook page is the most famous page about weather forecasts in India today.
