Since the last few days, the Southern Peninsula is the most active region of the entire country, in terms of rainfall activity. In fact, moderate to heavy rains have been occurring over the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu for past many days.
These rains have been attributed to the two weather systems present in the Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea, rather we should say two cyclonic storms, one is Luban and other is still brewing in Bay of Bengal.
At present, a trough is still extending from Cyclone Luban to North Kerala across Lakshadweep and another trough is seen running from East central Bay of Bengal to Southwest Bay of Bengal.
In the view of the above scenario, we expect light to moderate rains to continue over Interior Tamil Nadu, parts of Kerala and South Karnataka for the next 24-48 hours.
The capital city of Tamil Nadu, Chennai may also witness light rainfall activity.
Thereafter intensity of these rains will decrease over most of south peninsula and another good spell of rain is expected around October 15 and 16 over these states.
Due to these recent heavy rains, both Tamil Nadu and Kerala have become largely rain surplus by 121% and 48%, respectively.
