Mixed Weather Outlook for Tamil Nadu: Rainfall Continues with Dry Deepavali Predicted

Many parts of Tamil Nadu are expected to receive rainfall on November 10, with a gradual decrease in precipitation anticipated until November 15, according to the Meteorological Department. The focus of rainfall will shift towards the southern and interior regions of the state. A cyclonic circulation over the Comorin area and strong easterly/northeasterly winds will contribute to ongoing rain activity.

Additionally, a low-pressure area in the east-central Arabian Sea is likely to influence rain in the southern and western parts of Tamil Nadu. While most places in northern districts, including Chennai, may experience a dry Deepavali, sporadic rain is not ruled out. On Friday, 12 districts, including Nagapattinam, Tiruvarur, Kanniyakumari, and Tenkasi, have the potential for heavy rain in isolated areas.

Despite the Northeast monsoon initially focusing on southern and western districts, Tamil Nadu’s overall rainfall deficit has decreased from 42% in October to 15%. Some districts have received surplus rainfall, while deficits, particularly in northern areas, exceed 30%.
