Chennai rains

As predicted by Skymet Weather, Northeast Monsoon is on its path of revival as we see rains picking up pace across Tamil Nadu. Several parts of the state saw light to moderate rains during the last 24 hours. According to the rainfall data available, Pamban has recorded 14 mm of rainfall, followed by Puducherry 8 mm and Thiruttani 3 mm in the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday. The capital city of Chennai recorded light rain during the same span.

As per the weathermen, with the departure of Cyclone Bulbul has paved way for return of seasonal wind pattern of humid north-easterlies along the Indian coastline. Last 24 hours have seen these winds strengthening, resulting in rain and thundershowers over Tamil Nadu coast.

Further, more rains are predicted for the capital city of Chennai during the next 24 to 48 hours. Moderate showers would be seen in Chennai and many other coastal areas during this period. However, flooding rains are ruled out as Monsoon surge is still not very active.

According to weathermen, the remnants of the Cyclone Nakri are about to reach Bay of Bengal during the next 48 hours. This would keep on and off rains continue until November 22 or 23, with the intensity varying from district to district. Moderate Chennai rains would be a sight until next week.

Interior parts, during the same span, would observe isolated light rain with one or two odd moderate spells.

The commencement of humid northeasterly winds from the Bay of Bengal has certainly broken the prolonged dry spell. And Northeast Monsoon which was silent until now has once again revived in the state.

However, since rains are not going to be very heavy, the chance of Chennai surpassing it monthly average rainfall target is less. November, which is the rainiest month for the state capital, has been disappointing this time. Against the monthly normal of 374.4 mm, Chennai has mere recorded 3 mm of rain recorded Nungambakkam Observatory, while 27.2 mm of rains were observed by Minambakkam Observatory.

After experiencing excess amounts of rainfall during the month of October, the rainfall activities have gone almost silent over the Southern Peninsula. The revival of Monsoon would change this scenario, however, active to vigorous Monsoon conditions are not likely anytime soon.
