Monsoon remains weak over most parts of India

The Monsoon has been weak for the past few days over most parts of India due to lack of significant weather system. Currently there is a weak circulation in the north bay which is expected to develop into a low pressure area in one or two days. This weather system would increase the thunderstorm activity significantly over West Bengal, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh in the coming days. The thunderstorm activity from this system could extend to Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh by the end of this week.

TN will remain mostly dry with some isolated thunderstorms. There could be a slight increase in thunderstorm activity from Wednesday.

Chennai will see max temperature around 36C with partly cloudy skies.

Coimbatore will witness a warm day with max temperature between 32-33C. There is a possibility of thunder showers during evening/night.

Madurai to remain hot and dry with max temperature reaching close to 37C.

  3. A recent extended range forecast of the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM) Pune, states that the El Nino effect may dominate the remaining days of August and first week of September.The ongoing dry spell, which was expected to continue till August end, may get extended to the first week of September.Rainfall activity will therefore be mainly confined to the eastern part of India and the southern peninsula.
    In line with the IITM forecast, a recent India Meteorological Department’s (IMD) extended range forecast till September 8 predicted above normal rainfall activity over northeast and adjoining east India on many days till the beginning of September. It forecast normal rainfall activity over south peninsular from September 4 to 8 and below normal rainfall activity over plains of northwest and central India on many days.
    A met department official meanwhile said that a major part of the country will experience subdued rainfall till the first week of September.
