Increase in Temperatures Expected over Tamil Nadu

After a couple of days of drop in temperatures today we could see increase in temperatures for most parts of Tamil Nadu.  Yesterday also saw fairly moderate climate prevail over most parts of the state with only Karur & Dharmapuri recording temperatures higher than 40°C.  Most places recorded a degree or two lesser than Monday with coastal areas enjoying a humid day thanks to the Easterly winds.


The wind discontinuity at lower levels continues to persist along the interiors of Peninsular India which is likely to trigger some rains during the late evenings.  Parts of Telengana, Coastal AP, Interior Karnataka along with coastal Kerala could get benefited out of these rains while Northeast India which is already reeling under floods in some places of Assam will continue to get thunderstorms.  Some places along the foothills of Himalayas could see fairly heavy spells of rains with the trend expected to continue for a few more days.


As indicated most of South India is likely to see some increase in temperatures while the Konkan coast is likely to see another day of hotter than normal temperature on account of the more Easterly winds like yesterday.  Telengana & Andhra is likely to see an increase in temperature particularly around the coastal areas of Central Andhra leading to moderate heat wave conditions.


Chennai and suburbs will see temperatures increase by a degree or so compared to the last few days with Meenambakkam possibly once again inching past the 100°F Mark.  While most interiors should see temperatures in the region of 40 degrees one or two places could inch towards 41 degrees.
