Weather Forecast for Oct 21: Rain in Chennai, TN, Kerala, Karnataka, Pollution in Delhi to rise

07:11 PM


Before we begin with the bulletin, Skymet Weather would like to convey heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of those who lost their lives in tragic event in Amritsar where a speeding train ran over hundreds of people gathered to see Dussehra festivities.

Coming back to weather, starting with pollution, the air quality in Delhi-NCR has touched its peak and slipped into ‘very poor’ category due to bursting of fire crackers and burning of effigies on Dussehra. Other factor is the rampant stubble burning in Punjab and Haryana as shown in NASA images in the last two weeks.

Down South India, a cyclonic circulation is over North Andaman Sea which is expected to intensify into a low pressure area. Another circulation is marked over Southeast Arabian Sea. Both these systems are connected through a trough.

Together these systems would cause moderate to heavy rain in Coastal Tamil Nadu and Kerala including Chennai, and light to moderate showers in Karnataka and isolated rain in Coastal Andhra Pradesh. Rain is also expected in Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Moving to East and Northeast India, a weak trough is extending from Myanmar to North Assam. Thus, only light rain is likely in parts of Northeastern States with mist during morning hours in most pockets. The weather in the eastern states will remain dry but pleasant.

Up North, a weak Western Disturbance is over Central Jammu and Kashmir and its induced cyclonic circulation lies over Central Pakistan. Thus, rainfall is expected in parts of Jammu and Kashmir, while the weather in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and the northwestern plains including DelhiNCR will remain dry but pleasant.

Finally in Central parts, a trough is extending over Central Maharashtra, which could cause thunderstorms in parts of Maharashtra. Remaining parts of the region including West Rajasthan would remain dry and warm. The temperatures in Kutch are expected to increase.
