Thereafter, these rains are anticipated to reduce significantly by February 2 and 3. Henceforth, another spell of good rains is expected to commence around February 4, which will continue until February 6.

The next round of good spell would occur in view of the formation of a trough from coastal Tamil Nadu to Sri Lanka. This rainy episode would also bring scattered showers over the country. Moreover, one or two heavy spells of rain during this time, cannot be ruled out as well.
