Another wet spell over Tamil Nadu starting anytime today

December 21, 2018 11:30 AM |


A Cyclonic Circulation is currently present over the Equatorial region and adjoining Sri Lanka coast. It is extending up to 3.6 km off Sri Lanka. A trough is extending from this system up to West-central Bay of Bengal. This system is likely to move further in a northwest direction.

In wake of these systems, rainfall is likely to begin in parts of Tamil Nadu coast anytime today. South coastal stations like Tiruchirappalli, Tuticorin and Pamban may receive moderate with isolated heavy rainfall during the next 24 hours. Cities like Chennai, Puducherry, Cuddalore and Kanyakumari are likely to receive rains, although the rain intensity will remain light. Gradually, the interior parts of Tamil Nadu will be observing light rains as well. This rainfall activity is expected to continue for the next 48 hours.

The next few days will bring along a rise in the minimum temperatures. However, a drop in day temperatures is expected. Moderate gusty winds are expected along the coastal areas.

Presently, the state of Tamil Nadu is running rain deficient for the season. The next 10-12 days do not hold much probability for any new weather system to make up for this rain deficiency. Thus, this month and the season will end on a dry note for the state.
