It has been a while that any significant weather system has developed in Bay of Bengal. Now a potential weather system has developed in southeast Bay of Bengal.

It is presently seen as a well-marked low pressure area, which is likely to intensify into a depression any time soon. However, we are afraid that the system may not strengthen further.

According to Skymet Weather, it is a fast moving system, therefore time of travel over the sea will be less that will reduce the chances of its intensification.

However, system has full potential to give moderate rain and thundershowers at many places of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh on December 1 and 2. Coastal parts of Tamil Nadu and South Andhra Pradesh may record some isolated heavy showers. Fishermen are also advised to be cautious while venturing out in the sea during this time period.

Weathermen predict that light rain and thundershowers will commence from November 30 over the Coastal Tamil Nadu including Chennai.

Thereafter, the system will cross the coast, moving in west-northwest direction. December 1 onwards, light to moderate rains will cover most parts of Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema.

The system will continue to move westwards and by December 3, we can expect rain and thundershowers over South Interior Karnataka and Kerala as well.

The approaching system is likely to revive the Northeast Monsoon which has remained subdued for very long time now. This will mark an end to the prolonged dry spell over Peninsular India including Chennai.

Entire region has been highly rain deficit with deficiency ranging between 60%-90%. Though upcoming spell of rain may drop the deficiency by few percent but drought light conditions will still persist.
