As predicted by Skymet Weather services, during the last 24 hours, moderate to heavy rainfall activity occurred over the western parts of Tamil Nadu and rest all parts received mainly light rains. In fact, Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu recorded very heavy rain to the tune of 141 mm.
In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Friday, Valparai recorded 47 mm of rain, followed by Ooty 29 mm, Madurai 28 mm, Coonoor 22 mm, Parangipettai 18 mm and Thiruttani 8 mm.
With the passage of severe cyclonic system Gaja, rainfall activity over Tamil Nadu has now come to a halt over most parts of Tamil Nadu especially the northern parts including Chennai.
However, from today evening once again clouding over Tamil Nadu is expected to increase. Thus, rains will also pick up pace again especially over the western and southern parts.
The cyclonic circulation over southeast and adjoining equator is likely to move in a west/northwest direction and may become a low-pressure area by tomorrow evening over south central Bay of Bengal.
In wake of this weather system, we expect rains to gear up over the entire state after 48 hours. But during the next 48 hours also rains will continue over western parts along with some other parts. Chennai may also receive light rain during this period.
