The states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu have been experiencing good amounts of rainfall for the last many days now.
In a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Saturday, Punalur has recorded 17.8 mm, Kodaikanal 7.8 mm, Trivandrum 1.3 mm, while traces of rain have been recorded in Chennai.
The general weather in these states has been humid and warm, coupled with cloudy sky conditions. Intensity-wise, the Eastern Coastal parts of Tamil Nadu have experienced less amount of rainfall as compared to West and Interior Tamil Nadu in the last few days.
The ongoing weather activities are a result of a Cyclonic Circulation over South Interior Karnataka and adjoining parts of Andhra Pradesh. Under the influence of this system, moist winds from the Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea are blowing over these states.
As the above system would persist for some more time, light to moderate rains would continue over many parts of Kerala and Tamil Nadu for the next three to four days. Places like Kodaikanal, Coimbatore, Salem, Madurai, Kanyakumari, Puducherry, Trivandrum, Punalur, Kottayam, Kochi, Kozhikode etc would be the ones to witness rainfall activities.
The capital city of Chennai may also experience short spells of light rain and thundershowers during the next 24 to 36 hours along with warm and humid weather and cloudy sky conditions.
The ongoing rains would benefit the present cropping system in both states.
As per our experts, the day temperatures in Kerala would settle between 32 and 34 degree Celcius, while in Tamil Nadu around 34 degree Celcius for the next few days.
