The Low Pressure Area (LPA) continues to move in a near westerly direction and now lies close to Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Uttar Pradesh. This is seen spinning with a buoyancy extending up to mid tropospheric levels, suitable to generate moist convection and cloudiness across the region and triggering heavy rains all across the core Monsoon region. To the north of this rain zone, easterlies/south easterlies impinging over the Himalayan foothills will generate another rain zone with the aid of Orographic mechanism to deliver monsoon rains. South-West India is spawning a weak off-shore trough which can generate rains along the Kerala and Karnataka coasts. Rainfall will gradually increase in the southern regions of Tamil Nadu, south interior Karnataka, Kerala and Rayalaseema.
Chennai would experience cloudy skies with a day time maximum temperature of 35-36 C. Light rains possible towards evening.
Coimbatore will see a cloudy day with a maximum temperature close to 31 C.
Madurai to remain partly cloudy with a maximum temperature of 36-37 C. Late evening storms may bring in some light rains
