During the last two to three days, the weather of Tamil Nadu including the city of Chennai has been dry. But, the city has been receiving on and off rain and thundershower activities since November 14. The intensity has been mainly light, barring two occasions i.e November 21 and November 24.
Until now (In November), the capital city of Chennai is rain deficient by 37% whereas the state of Tamil Nadu as a whole is rain deficient by 10%.
Northeast Monsoon had remained subdued due to which the weather in Chennai was dry but according to our meteorologists, the Northeast Monsoon and the easterly winds will get activated from November 28 due to which we can expect moderate rain with one or two heavy spells in many parts of Tamil Nadu and Chennai between November 28 and December 02.
This will be one of the heaviest rain spells of Chennai and Tamil Nadu in the month of November. Not only Chennai but many other parts such as Kanchipuram, Puducherry, Karaikal, Pamban, Nagapattinam and, Thanjavur may receive good rainfall activities. Scattered rains are also possible in Madurai, Coimbatore and the Nilgiri hills.
This spell of rain could lead to waterlogging, and traffic jams in many parts of Chennai and its suburbs. Post-December 02, the rainfall activities will subside with on and off light rains continuing.
