In what Atchu Weather considers as one of the best onsets of recent times Widespread Rains have happened over Tamil Nadu. Yesterday saw heavy rains over parts of Ramanathapuram district for second consecutive day. Pamban saw 10 cms the other day while Tondi recorded 8 cms yesterday.
Today also widespread rains are likely over Tamil Nadu. South TN is likely to see heavy rains in a few places along the coastal stretch between Delta & Kanyakumari. Isolated places along the Western Ghats is likely to get heavy rains.
A combination of disturbances on either side of the coast is circulating three moisture bringing near continuous rain bands over the coastal areas of Tamil Nadu. While the trough running along the coast of TN off Sri Lanka is influencing the rainfall pattern over Coastal areas the circulation over the Lacadive sea area has been creating conditions for heavy rains over Kerala & along the Western Ghats.
Weather models indicate a possible wind Convergence over North Coastal TN and adjoining parts of South AP. This could trigger heavy rains in one or two places in the region.
