Rain in Chennai

Chennai rains are all set to pick up pace, with some intense showers likely to drench the state capital today. Dense clouding can be seen over the city since the early morning hours, with rains making an appearance over some parts already.

After a prolonged dry spell, Chennai has been recording light rains on daily basis since November 14. However, any significant spell has been missing. Now, Northeast Monsoon surge has revived and the city has recorded moderate rains during the last 24 hours.

These rains can be attributed to a trough running from the Comorin region to South Coastal Andhra Pradesh across Coastal Tamil Nadu. Thus, moderate rains with few intense spells are expected to drench Chennai during the next 24 hours.

Thereafter, with this trough becoming insignificant, rains are also likely to subside November 23 onwards. But weather would not go completely dry and isolated light rains would continue over the city. During this time, parts of South coastal Tamil Nadu such as Karaikal and Pamban would continue with some moderate rains but North Coastal Tamil Nadu including Chennai would see light rains only.

According to weathermen, a fresh surge of Monsoon is likely around November 27, wherein we would see moderate rains with few heavy spells over Chennai.

It has been disappointing November for Chennai, which is supposed to be the rainiest month for the city. Tamil Nadu including Chennai is the main beneficiary for Northeast Monsoon, which gives over 50% of its annual rainfall.
