South West Monsoon continues to be in subdued state across most parts of the country except North & North-east regions. A series of severe weather making disturbances in the Western Pacific Ocean called typhoons may have indirectly influenced our monsoon rainfall by keeping the Bay of Bengal inactive. Heavy rains expected across Northwest India, including J&K, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand along with northern plains of UP and Bihar. Monsoon will get a small booster as a Monsoon Low is expected to form over west bengal coast off North Bay in about 4-5 days.
Moderate Heat wave like conditions are likely to prevail across N.TN and Pondicherry for few more days until a shift in wind patterns occurs with the Monsoon Low formation. Day time temperatures across TN, especially in the northern parts will remain 1 – 2 degree C above normal for a day or two.
Chennai – Scorcher of a day expected with maximum temperature touching 39-40C yet again.
Coimbatore will be cloudy with temperatures settling close to 33-34C.
Madurai to see partly hazy skies with day time highs close to 38-39C
