Chennai braces for heavy rain as northeast monsoon spreads over coastal TN

Chennai braces for heavy rain as northeast monsoon spreads over coastal TN”

But the rain is not expected to be as heavy it was 2015 when Chennai was flooded for three days. Along with this, Northeast Monsoon is also now active over the region.

Day 3 (1st Nov.): Heavy rain at isolated places very likely over Tamil Nadu and Puducherry and Kerala. The intermittent rains, under the influence of an upper air cyclonic circulation over South West Bay of Bengal, began on Sunday night in parts of the state and intensified on Monday morning. Heavy rain is also likely to occur at isolated places over interior Tamil Nadu during the same period.

These rainfall activities can be attributed to the cyclonic circulation which is now persisting over Southwest Bay of Bengal off Sri Lanka coast and adjoining Tamil Nadu coast.

The Met office has forecast heavy to very heavy rains in some areas of coastal districts, including Chennai and its neighbourhood, in the next 24 hours. The wet spell is likely to last till the weekend over the State. Due to a cyclone formation over the Bay of Bengal, the weather department has predicted more and heavy rainfalls in the coming days.

Buses were delayed in several areas and parts of the city and suburbs witnessed water logging, affecting office-goers and school children.

The heavy downpour caused deluge and traffic snarls in some areas. In November 2015, Chennai received 1218.6 mm of rain, three times the normal rain that month and on December 1 alone it received 374 mm rain that flooded the city. Industrial unit holders in Ambattur Estate had to down shutters due to waterlogging in their premises. The Maximum and minimum temperature is likely to be around 32 and 24 deg Celsius respectively.
