No More Rains Likely Over South Peninsula During January

January 23, 2024 4:22 PM |

There are hardly any rains over the country as such, for the last few days. Odisha has observed rain and showers in some parts since mid-week last. This weather activity was largely under the influence of an anticyclone in the Bay of Bengal and a trough running off the coast over land from Andhra Pradesh to North Odisha. This activity will continue for the next 3-4 days with mild intensity and spaced spread. Some parts of Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra witnessed a few strayed showers.

After the withdrawal of the northeast monsoon, the southern parts have gone into long breaks. Showers, if at all are rather far and few. These were light and mostly confined to the coastline. No significant rains are likely over the states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.  Few clouds with fleeting patches of light rain will remain confined to South Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Coastal Tamil Nadu and extreme southern parts of Kerala. These rains may be far below the measurable quantity and also last for a fraction of the total duration.

There is no wave/ trough and any cyclonic circulation coming up over the region. As such, the second half of January and complete February is not a preferred period for noticeable rain and showers over this region. There is a cyclonic circulation off the South Konkan and Goa coast in the Arabian Sea. However, this feature is getting drawn away deep over the Arabian Sea over the next two days. The rainfall activity, if any, will remain confined to the sea region. The chain of Bay Islands and Lakshadweep region is likely to have rain and showers till the weekend. Mainland South India will mostly observe dry weather conditions, more so, after Republic Day.
