Upcoming rain in Chennai, Tamil Nadu to remain light

February 13, 2019 3:33 PM |

Chennai Rains

After a long dry spell in Chennai, isolated light rains are all set to make an appearance over the city around February 16. These rains will be patchy in nature and not all the parts will see rainfall activities.

Other parts of Tamil Nadu may see scattered rainfall activity on February 16 and 17. These rains will occur on account of a Trough which is likely to form from Andhra Pradesh to Interior Tamil Nadu.

Chennai rains usually remain on the backseat during this time of the year as February is one of the leanest months in terms of rains for the Tamil Nadu capital along with the entire state.

This time, rains have usually remained on the backseat and rainfall has been way less than usual resulting in the state observing a deficiency of a whopping 84 percent. The little amount of rains which have been observed are in Tamil Nadu during the month of January and February due to the formation of a trough which was extending from the central parts of the country to Interior Tamil Nadu.

On the other hand, Chennai is rain deficient by 99 percent and has only seen 0.1 mm of rains against the normal of 22.8 mm. Isolated light rains have occurred in January between 26 and 28, however, they were only very light showers. Another spell of very light rain was seen on February 3. Since then, the city of Chennai has remained dry.
