Most people have passions. Some passions remain passions; others turn into professions or at least vocations. So is the case with T Balaji, a resident of Dilsukhnagar, who is a weatherman. Well, he loves to do his bit of research and predict local weather.His passion started when he was pretty young. According to his parents, ever since he was six, he would run out whenever it would rain, stopping whatever he would be doing. That turned into a mesmerisation and respect for the weather, and now at the age of 16, he is quite a pro in predicting weather conditions. 

A student of Sri Chaitanya College, T Balaji, checks weather models like Global Forecast System (GFS) and European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), apart from gazing at the sky for a good 10 to 15 minutes daily. He also checks the satellite images and clouds images that are easily available on the internet. “It becomes very important to look at temperature, humidity, clouds and other local factors,” he shares. 

His interest piqued after the following Twitter handles @Rajani_Weather and @TS_AP_Weather. After interacting with them and messaging them, Balaji learnt a lot and started his own Twitter account in October 2020. In fact, his mentors retweeted his posts which made him more confident. 

However, during the heavy monsoon season last year in Hyderabad, he realised the importance of his posts. Properties were lost, the city was water-logged, people died; amidst all this, he was asked about when the rains would stop. That’s when reality hit Balaji, and he understood the depth of his vocation. 

Now, Balaji wants to continue predicting weather no matter which line of study he would take up. He is also interested in colour-coded maps of states irrespective of seasons. And like all youngsters, he likes to play cricket when he has time. 

Balaji’s Twitter handle happens to be @balaji25_t.
