Regular followers in the COMK Facebook page would have seen our post about the highest temperature of the year clocked in Chennai today.
Thanks to the low pressure trough over the Bay many places in South Tamil Nadu and western interior Tamil Nadu received fairly good spells of rains. On and off rains are expected today, though it would be more isolated and of lesser intensity compared to the weekend rains.
As expected South Tamil Nadu has started receiving rains thanks to the low level circulation south west of Kerala. Places like Madurai etc received a heavy spell of rains today evening. Places adjoining the Western Ghats in the districts of Kanyakumari & Tirunelveli also has been receiving spells of rains since afternoon.
With the easterly rains a fair possibility now its time to put out the rainfall update that’s expected from the low pressure trough over the South Bay.
