rain in South India

Northeast Monsoon has once again picked up the pace, with rain reappearing over South India during the last few days. The last 24 hours saw Northeast Monsoon rains further intensifying.

Tamil Nadu has seen light to moderate rains over most parts, with heavy to very heavy rains over few pockets. Kerala, Coastal and South Interior Karnataka too recorded light to moderate rains.

According to Skymet Weather, after the clearance of cyclonic storms Maha and Bulbul, conditions are now favourable for the formation of weather systems. At present, a cyclonic circulation is seen over Kerala. Besides this, a trough is seen running from southwest Bay of Bengal to east-central Bay of Bengal.

With the presence of these systems, moist easterly winds from the Bay of Bengal as well as the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean are reaching extreme southern parts of Peninsular India. As a result, fairly widespread rain and thundershowers are being witnessed over South India.

Moreover, with trough coming closer to the East Coast, Andhra Pradesh would too start recording rains today onwards along with strong winds. As per weathermen, Monsoon rains of light to moderate rains would persist for another 2-3 days over Kerala, Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Rayalaseema, Coastal and South Interior Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Particularly, coastal areas of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu might witness heavy to very heavy rains over few areas.

Major cities of Chennai and Bengaluru would also see Monsoon rains, wherein the former would see moderate rains, while the latter would settle with light showers only.

In fact, weathermen predict Monsoon rains intensifying further on November 19 and 20.

These rains would be beneficial in increasing the rainfall surplus, which as on November 15 stands at 26% for Peninsula India. The surplus which stood at 54% as on October 31 was consumed as Northeast Monsoon had become subdued.
