This Monsoon season, Tamil Nadu has been receiving good rains. And as of now, the city is rain surplus by 12%.
During the last two days, fairly widespread moderate rainfall activities with few heavy spells occurred in the State of Tamil Nadu. The reason for these rains was the formation of a Cyclonic Circulation over South-West Bay of Bengal off North Tamil Nadu coast.
In a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Monday, places like Salem recorded 88 mm of rain, Dharampur received 64 mm, Thanjavur 85 mm, Madurai 51 mm, Pamban 46 mm and Tirupattur recorded 27 mm of rain. The city of Chennai also witnessed light rain of 6 mm.
Many other areas in Tamil Nadu witnessed light to moderate rain.
Today, we expect moderate showers to commence over parts of Tamil Nadu. And during the next 24 hours, a Cyclonic Circulation would develop over South-east Arabian Sea off South Kerala coast. Due to this weather system, we expect the intensity of rain to increase over the Southern districts of Tamil Nadu on during the next 48 hours.
Places like Kanyakumari, Tirunelveli, Madurai, Virudhunagar, and Theni would receive moderate to heavy rainfall activities.
September 27 onwards, the Weather in Tamil Nadu will start clearing up and there will be only isolated rain.
Thus, until the end of September, the weather will be dry in entire Tamil Nadu.
