Depression over Bay of Bengal makes landfall at TN coast

November 16, 2013 6:52 PM |

North India will continue to feel a chill during early morning and late evening, with significantly below normal minimums, between 10 to 12 degrees. Maximums continue to settle slightly below normal in the range of 25 to 26 degrees. The prevailing cloudy weather will bring a fresh spell of rain and snow in the hills of North India, by the night of 16th. Chilly north-westerly winds are keeping the temperatures below normal in Northwestern plains including Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The national capital hardly has any respite from cold weather conditions, as minimums remain 3 to 4 degrees below normal at around 9 degrees.

Cool north-easterly winds will keep the weather pleasant over eastern and central India, with maximum temperatures around 28 to 30 degrees. Coastal areas of Maharashtra such as Mumbai, Surat and Goa will be slightly warmer at around 34 degrees.

The depression over southwest Bay of Bengal has struck the Tamil Nadu coast near Nagapattinam. Heavy rain over coastal Tamil Nadu and good amounts of showers are expected over coastal Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and south interior Karnataka, for next 24 hours. Under the influence of this depression, north easterlies blowing at a speed of around 45 to 55 kmph along the coast of Tamil Nadu, could affect normal life. Day temperatures have come down significantly, by 3 to 4 degrees. Minimums, on the other hand, in entire south India have risen to settle around 25 degrees.

A tropical depression is entering Gulf of Thailand and will possibly enter Andaman Sea after 48 hours.
