Monsoon is likely to turn inactive for the next 5 to 6 days after a week long wet spell, courtesy “Cyclone Komen”. Active super typhoon in the West Pacific and lack of disturbance in northern Bay of Bengal are collectively leading to a short break like scenario. We will still see few patches of rains over coastal Karnataka, west and extreme northern parts of the country for the next 2 to 3 days. With the monsoon moving into a dormant state in the coming days, temperature may see a sharp rise all along Karnataka, Rayalaseema, Tamilnadu, AP and adjoining east coastal states for a period of one week. Thunderstorm activity is likely to increase over north coastal Tamilnadu & North interior Tamilnadu.
