As per Skymet Weather, these rains will be due to the formation of a feeble trough over coastal Tamil Nadu. Another trough which is running from Maharashtra to South Interior Karnataka will also influence the rain activity over the interior districts of the state. On the other hand, the southern districts of the state are expected to remain almost dry.
