The north coastal regions of the state would remain almost dry, but the sky may become partly cloudy at a time. However, Chennai rains may revive, and the city may witness the first spell of pre-Monsoon showers around May 25.

The rains would start decreasing May 27 onwards for two to three days as a low-pressure area is expected to develop over the west-central Bay of Bengal and it will move in a north-northeasterly direction, gradually intensifying. This weather system would pull away the moisture from the Southern Peninsular region, leading to a reduction in rains.
