Rain to Intensify Over Tamil Nadu and Kerala: Relief and Disruption in Equal Measure

December 16, 2023 12:29 PM |

Brace yourselves, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala! A cyclonic circulation brewing over the southwest Bay of Bengal is set to move across South Peninsula, intensifying rainfall across the region for the next 2-3 days.

Moderate to heavy showers are expected to lash Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Lakshadweep, bringing much-needed respite from the recent rain deficiency. However, the downpour is also likely to cause waterlogging in low-lying areas, disrupting traffic and daily life.

While the rain will replenish parched reservoirs and revive dry farmlands, farmers must remain vigilant against potential flooding and soil erosion. The drop in temperatures associated with the rains will also provide a welcome relief from the recent heat but could disrupt outdoor activities.

Rural communities may face challenges due to flooded fields, damaged roads, and potential disruptions in essential services like power and communication. Waterlogging in urban areas could lead to traffic congestion and inconvenience for commuters. Landslides in hilly regions are a possibility, requiring residents to stay alert.

While the rain helps improve air quality and replenishes water reserves, urban infrastructure may face strain due to increased surface runoff. Overflowing drains and possible power outages are potential concerns.

Stay informed and follow the latest weather updates from Skymet Weather. Carry essentials like raincoats and umbrellas and be prepared for potential disruptions in your daily routine. While the rains may bring challenges, they also offer the crucial opportunity to replenish water resources and revitalize the parched land.
