Evening rains to return back in Chennai!! Sounds incredible right!!
In the month of June, there were widespread rains in the evenings in Chennai and this brought relief and happiness to the residents. Now, in July, this weekend the evenings would have widespread rains in Chennai as the monsoon winds intensity and rains might reduce over the west coast. This would lead to thunderstorms in Chennai and its suburbs. Light rains have been predicted for the next 2 days. It is brought out by some weather bloggers that rain intensity might become more in the evenings.
There have been light isolated rains in Chennai and its suburbs in the last 2 days because monsoons are active over the west coast. It is believed that strong westerlies would push rain clouds or thunderstorms that formed in interior parts of TN towards the sea. Yesterday evening, places near the sea received light rain. Nungambakkam reported a temperature of 35.8 degrees Celsius and Meenambakkam reported 35.9 degrees Celsius.
There would be light to moderate rains in Chennai in some places and skies would be partly cloudy. This was as per IMD prediction for next 48 hours. It was confirmed by an officer from IMD that the weather pattern in Chennai is due to the change in the westerlies speeds.
