The Monsoon rains have been active over Marathawada, Rayalaseema, Coastal Karnataka, North Interior Karnataka and Kerala during past 24 hours. This is due to a trough at lower levels that is seen running from north Madhya Maharashtra to Lakshadweep area across interior Karnataka extending up to 1.5 km above mean sea level.
Meanwhile, an upper air cyclonic circulation (UAC) persists in west central Bay, which according to some numerical weather models, may surface down and a Low Pressure Area (LPA) could form in about 3-4 days.
This LPA could revive back the last Monsoon spell into central India and adjoining east India, while the Monsoon withdrawal line stays restricted to extreme western India.
Chennai will see max temperature moving closer to 35C. Skies will be mostly cloudy with a possibility of thunderstorm activity in the evening/night.
Coimbatore has a chance of light showers in some areas with max temperature hovering around 32C.
Madurai – Temperature is expected to be around 36C. There is a possibility of light showers in some areas during late evening hours/night.
