Northeast Monsoon – Heavy Rainfall Alert for Interior TN

Northeast Monsoon continues to be active over Tamil Nadu with many places in Interior Tamil Nadu getting moderate rains yesterday. Nagapattinam got more than 5 cms while Trichy & Madurai got 1 and 2 cms till last evening.


Northeast Monsoon Update :  The development of two Upper Air Cyclonic Circulation on either side of Peninsular India has created wind induced instability which has triggered potential heavy rainfall scenario over most parts of North West Tamil Nadu.  The districts of Krishnagiri, Vellore, Tiruvannamalai & Dharmapuri could experience heavy rains at many places with one or two places getting spells of very heavy rains at times due to the Line of Wind Discontinuity developed over South India.

Due to this development of Wind Discontinuity while the interior districts enjoy potentially heavy rainfall day the coastal districts could take a break from rains with not much rainfall activity expected in the coastal region except for occasional isolated rains in one or two places.


Chennai Weather Update: Partly cloudy skies with day time temperature expected to be around 32°C.  Some areas in the Western suburbs could get isolated spells of rains in the afternoon while one or two areas in the city could witness passing showers later in the day.
