Tamil Nadu to get more light showers, rain in Chennai likelyAs predicted by Skymet Weather, Chennai rains continued for the second consecutive day on Wednesday. In fact, other districts of North Coastal Tamil Nadu also received light to moderate rain and thundershower activities.


However, intensity of these Monsoon rains was more over the interior hilly districts that saw moderate to heavy rains.

In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday, Valparai recorded heavy rains to the tune of 93 mm. In Chennai, Nungambakkam observatory recorded 28 mm and Minambakkam observatory 17 mm.

In the similar time span, Vellore witnessed 13 mm of rains, Coimbatore 6 mm, Coonor 5.5 mm, Kodaikanal 2.3 mm and Salem 2.7 mm.

While coastal areas saw rains on account of the presence of a feeble trough, rains over interior districts were due to the incursion of moisture from the Arabian Sea over Kerala and adjoining interior districts of Tamil Nadu.

As per Skymet Weather, scattered showers are expected to continue over the north coastal stations parts. Chennai may also receive one or two spells of Monsoon rains again on Wednesday.

However, the districts adjacent to Kerala would continue to witness moderate showers. Heavy rains also cannot be ruled out.

Meanwhile, the southern districts such as Tuticorin and Madurai would be almost dry in wake of the moderate westerly winds blowing over these regions.
