One of the Wettest day awaits Chennai – Be prepared
The weather bloggers have been waiting for November 12th from last week of October even before the system was taking shape far way in Thailand Sea. In a short-while after mid-night Chennai will witness the 1st spell of rains from this system. The good news is that the system is not going to become a cyclone and rains will last for prolonged period of 3-4 days.
Chennai: Starting from mid-night right now heavy rains will lash the city intermittent throughout the day. Our Kea blogger cyclone expert Selva expects around 80 mm rains. I also expect around 100 -120 mm rains tomorrow (ending 8.30 am on 13th) and there is good chances for the roads to get flooded in low lying areas.
Tamil Nadu: The system is expected to move into arabian sea after 2 days, before that all coastal areas will get good rains on 12th and 13th. After that it will the Interior regions chance for heavy rains. There can be very very heavy rains in Nilgiris district, Kanyakumari district, Theni district, Coimbatore district and Tirunelveli district’s as the system moves away during 13-14th.
