Northeast Monsoon 2018: Rains to commence over Tamil Nadu from October 27

October 24, 2018 1:00 PM |

Foggy morning likely over Chennai, dry weather to persist

As on October 24, Tamil Nadu is rain surplus by 15%, but as expected, the state is experiencing reduced rains since the few days. However, during the last 24 to 48 hours, significant reduction in rainfall activity has been observed. In fact, rains were less than normal average.

During the last 24 hours, light to moderate rains were confined only to one or two southern stations. Meanwhile, the northern and interior parts of Tamil Nadu remained almost dry.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Tuesday, Tondi recorded 18.2 mm of rain, followed by Pamban 9.4 mm.

Now, as the last week of October is going on, Northeast Monsoon is expected to mark its onset anytime soon. Even though, the expected date for its onset is October 27 but rains would continue remain to be on the lower side and no major rainfall activity would occur.

Further, towards the end of this month i.e. the last two days, we expect rains to pick up pace and good rains are likely to commence over the Southern Peninsula including the state of Tamil Nadu. However, intensity of rains will be more over the southern and coastal stations, while the interior and northern parts will catch up gradually.
