Warm Weather in South India set to continue

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Yesterday was a prelude to the changing weather in South India with warm night time temperature pretty much across the region.  Most places recorded the warmest night of the year so far with Chennai recording 25.6°C.  With March approaching fast we could pretty much feel the change in weather conditions.

As explained in our yesterday’s post the Low Pressure in Bay of Bengal has pretty much dissipated and now lies as a weak trough along the Equatorial waters of Southwest Bay.  Under the influence of this Trough of Low isolated rains could continue over extreme South India with parts of South Tamil Nadu & South Kerala receiving rains over the next couple of days.


In the meanwhile the day time temperatures are set to be high over most parts of the Deccan Plateau.  Andhra & Telengana is expected to see an increase in day time temperatures in the days to come as hot & dry conditions are expected to dominate the interiors of Peninsular India.  As has been the pattern over the last few days pretty most places of Tamil Nadu will see day time temperatures in the region of around 33°C except for the North Coastal Tamil Nadu region which could see marginally more moderate conditions.  West Interior Tamil Nadu will continue to see maximum temperatures in the region of 34 / 35°C.  All in all Weather in South India is expected to gear up towards summer.


As has been the pattern the last couple of days coastal TN could see the spell of warm nights continue particularly around the South Tamil Nadu region. There could be a marginal reduction in the night time temperatures though it is expected to be uncomfortable with high humidity levels during the nights.

Chennai will see partly cloudy skies with a warm day on the cards.  Day time temperatures are expected to be in the region of 31 / 32°C while night time minimum temperatures could be around 24 / 25°C marginally lower than yesterday.
