South India rainsThe low pressure area that has been persisting over Gulf of Thailand is now seen over Andaman Sea. As predicted by Skymet Weather, the system has been moving in westerly direction towards the Indian waters.

In wake of this, rains have already picked up pace across Andaman and Nicobar Islands, with most places recording moderate to heavy showers. In last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Tuesday, Long Island recorded 52 mm of rain, followed by Port Blair 30 mm, Maya Bandar 29 mm, Car Nicobar 23 mm, and Nancowry 22 mm.

Further, we expect these moderate to heavy showers would continue for another 24-48 hours as the low pressure area is likely to persist.

Since the system is travelling favourable weather conditions, it is most likely to intensify further, predict weathermen. After getting more marked, the system is likely to track in westerly direction towards the coast of Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka.

The system would revive the Northeast Monsoon over Peninsular India, which at present is not active. As the low pressure area nears the coast, we can expect heavy to very heavy rains to lash South Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka around November 27-28.

Remaining parts of the state including Chennai would see mainly moderate showers with some heavy spells during the same time.
