It was during this time that Karaikal saw a whopping 102 mm of rains, breaking the decade old rainfall record for January. Other parts of the state also witnessed light to moderate showers in view of the weather systems prevailing in the Bay of Bengal in the form of a low-pressure area.

Now, as per weathermen at Skymet Weather, the state is expected to witness dry days for at least one week. Rainfall activity is expected to further reduce as the months of February and March are the least rainy months.

However, some light rains may occur around January 21 and 22 over southern parts of Coastal Tamil Nadu in view of a cyclonic circulation developing in the Bay of Bengal.
