Rain in Tamil Nadu

Northeast Monsoon continues to affect Tamil Nadu in the form of moderate to heavy rains as observed over southern districts of the state during the last 24 hours.

As per the rainfall data, Tiruchirappalli has recorded 57 mm of rain, followed by Adirampattinam 46 mm in a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday.

The meteorologists at Skymet have predicted more moderate to heavy showers over South Tamil Nadu during the next 24 hours. Chennai rains would occur with moderate intensity during the same time frame.

These rainfall activities would start subsiding from tomorrow, however, light to moderate rain with isolated heavy spells would continue.

At present, the Monsoon surge is active over the state because of two Well Marked Low-Pressure Area lying in the close vicinity of the state. However, these weather systems are not impacting the state directly and hence weather activities have remained comparatively less as compared to Karnataka during the last two to three days.

According to the Weathermen, the Well Marked Low-Pressure Area over the Arabian Sea would move in north/northeast direction during the next 24 hours. This system would later re-curve in the northwest directions towards Oman Coast and gradually intensify into a Cyclone. However, after October 24, its effect would be negligible over the Indian Coast.

Meanwhile, the other Well Marked Low-Pressure Area over Andhra Pradesh Coast would also move towards North Andhra Pradesh by tomorrow.

Due to the movement of these systems, rainfall activities would further reduce over Tamil Nadu after the next 24 hours.

The weather activities would then increase by October 28, as the Monsoon surge will get activated once again. This is because the two weather systems would fade away and as a result, the track would get cleared for the flow of moisture-laden winds from the Bay of Bengal over the Tamil Nadu region.
