Cooler Than Normal nights to continue for Chennai

The last few days have seen Peninsular India, including Chennai, firmly under the grip of Dry Weather Conditions with pretty much very little cloud cover and clear skies dominating.  While the winds will continue to remain Easterlies until possibly April end the overall conditions will remain mostly suppressed during the months of February / March due to the absence of supporting synoptic activities.  As this cloud cover forecast map for the next 6 days would indicate, Southern Peninsular India is likely to see near clear skies pretty much all across.

Thanks to the clear skies warm days and cool nights are going to be the order of the day for the next few days with not much change expected in conditions.  Chennai is likely to see maximum temperatures in the region of around 30 / 31°C while minimum temperatures are expected to be around 21°C in the city and a degree or two lower in the suburbs.

Interior Tamil Nadu particularly the areas adjoining South Interior Karnataka & Rayalaseema region is likely to see night time temperatures well below normal in the region of 2 – 4°C lower than average for this time of the year.  Tirupathur in Vellore district which recorded a minimum of 18°C on 30th Jan recorded 14.6 yesterday indicating the dip in night time temperatures seen in the region.  Similarly Vellore which was averaging around 20 recorded 17 yesterday morning.
