Chennai Nungambakkam ended with 20.4 mm of rainfall this June, which is the least rainfall since 2000.
A Low Pressure area continues to spin as it remains embedded inside the Indian Monsoon Trough close to Uttar Pradesh. This has helped the Monsoon trough to stay marginally active with rains across the Gangetic plains. This system would move slowly along the Monsoon trough yielding rains in UP, Uttarakhand and foothills of the Himalayas. Arunachal Pradesh is set to witness heavy rains alongside other North-Eastern states. Kerala and coastal Karnataka will also receive rains from a feeble off-shore trough in the vicinity along the west coast. Much of TN will witness the text book style rain shadow effect of the Southwest Monsoon rains, with T’Storms popping up later in the evening/night.
Chennai will continue to remain dehydrated owing to hot westerlies with sea breeze coming to rescue later during the day. Mercury levels could rise to 38-39 C, with a slight possibility of isolated T’storms in eve/night.
Coimbatore to see patches of low level clouds with sunny conditions with the thermometer settling close to 32-33 C, with chances of light rain.
Madurai to witness clear blue skies with temperatures hitting 38-39 C
