Low pressure in Bay to give more rain in TN, Kerala, Andaman and Nicobar Islands

October 20, 2016 5:08 PM |

Rain in Tamil NaduA fresh low pressure area has developed over east-central Bay of Bengal during the last 24 hours. The system has already given moderate to heavy rains over several parts of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Moreover, a trough is also extending from this system up to Southwest Bay of Bengal off the Tamil Nadu coast. In wake of this, Tamil Nadu has also been recording light rains at many places with few moderate spells.

Both the systems have also been impacting the weather over Kerala and the coastal state has recorded few spells of light rains. Prior to this, the a feeble cyclonic circulation was persisting over Kerala coast leading to good rains but the system has now become insignificant.

In span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday, Car Nicobar recorded 54 mm, Maya Bandar 49 mm, Hut Bay 25 mm, Port Blair 11 mm, Trichy 10 mm, Kochi 7 mm, Palayamkottai 4 mm, and Coimbatore 2 mm.

According to Skymet Weather, the low pressure are may intensify further into well-marked low pressure are during the next 48 hours. Thus, rains of similar intensity will continue over the region.

Usually during the Northeast Monsoon, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu record maximum amounts of their annual rainfall, while Kerala remains slightly subdued.

But till now, Northeast Monsoon has not become active and only occasional showers have been reported across the region. But as we proceed further, weathermen predict rainfall to pick up pace by end the of October and will continue throughout November.

However, we expect that rainfall in Northeast Monsoon, this year, is likely to remain below normal.
