Heavy rains likely to lash parts of Tamil Nadu for next few days

Chennai woke up to heavy rainfall even today, thereby leading to waterlogging in parts of the city. According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), heavy rainfall is likely to continue over parts of Tamil Nadu for the next few days due to depression over the Bay of Bengal. The low pressure is very likely to concentrate into a depression over Southwest and adjoining Southeast Bay of Bengal during the next 36 hours, the daily bulletin by the regional meteorological department in Chennai informed.

"Under the influence of the cyclonic circulation over southeast Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood, a low-pressure area has formed over the same region. Associated cyclonic circulation extends upto 4.5 km above mean sea level. It is very likely to concentrate into a depression over Southwest and adjoining Southeast Bay of Bengal during next 36 hours," it said. 

"It is likely to move west-northwestwards and reach near the north Tamil Nadu coast by the early morning of November 11, 2021. Northeast monsoon has been active over Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Karaikal area and Kerala," it added. 

Meanwhile, schools in Coimbatore also remained closed on Wednesday in wake of the red alert issued by the weather department.

Extremely heavy rain is likely to occur at isolated places over delta districts, Cuddalore, Villupuram, Pudukottai, Sivaganga, Ramanathapuram and Puducherry and Karaikal.
