The Chennai Meteorological Centre has informed that the Northeast Monsoon rainy season has come to a close.

The Director of the Chennai Meteorological Research Centre, Mr Balachandran, informed that the Northeast Monsoon Season comes to a close in Tamil Nadu.

This year the rainfall has been lesser than the average expected rainfall by 62 percent.

During the month of November, the rainfall was lesser by as much as 80 percent.

In the areas Cuddalore, Namakkal, and Puducherry, the rainfall was lesser as compared to the average by 81 percent. As per the record, the last time there was such a high shortage of rainfall was in the year 1867.

A low-pressure zone has formed in the Bay of Bengal near Andaman. There are prospects that this zone may develop into a very low-pressure zone and then intensify as a depression zone.

However, Mr Balachandran told that there is no scope for rain in Tamil Nadu.
