Posted on: 15/Jun/2024 9:55:34 AM

The Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) has predicted that the ongoing evening and night rains in the city will continue for the next two days due to a change in wind patterns. A trough from Telangana to the central Bay of Bengal, running from Rayalaseema to the west-central Bay of Bengal, between 3.1 km and 5.8 km above sea level, is causing rainfall over coastal districts of Tamil Nadu, according to P Senthamarai Kannan, Director of the Area Cyclone Warning Centre at the RMC.

Chennai and its suburbs are likely to receive light to moderate rain during the evening and night hours for the next two days, with cloudy skies providing relief from the heat. Weather blogger K Srikanth noted that isolated thunderstorms would persist over parts of north Tamil Nadu, with the possibility of heavy rains in some areas of Chennai and its suburbs.

Fishermen are advised to avoid venturing into the sea until June 18 due to strong winds over the Gulf of Mannar and the south Tamil Nadu coast.

RMC data indicates that Tamil Nadu received 64.6 mm of rainfall from June 1 to 14, exceeding the usual 27.4 mm for this period by 136%. All districts except Kanniyakumari and Tenkasi have recorded excess rainfall. Despite the rains, some isolated pockets of Tamil Nadu may experience a rise in temperature by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius above normal.
