Rainy Outlook: Tamil Nadu and Puducherry Brace for Wet Spell

As a cyclonic circulation forms over south interior Tamil Nadu and adjacent areas, several regions in Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, and Karaikal anticipate light to moderate rainfall, with heavy downpours predicted in specific districts. Meteorologists foresee a low-pressure area over the southwest Bay of Bengal by May 22, likely intensifying into a depression, signaling prolonged precipitation.

While widespread showers with thunderstorms and gusty winds are expected across the state, certain districts such as Theni, Virudhunagar, and Tenkasi anticipate heavy to very heavy rainfall. Chennai residents should prepare for cloudy weather and intermittent rainfall, with temperatures ranging from 27-35 degrees Celsius, creating a damp and humid atmosphere. As fishing activities remain suspended for the next five days due to adverse sea conditions, coastal communities are urged to exercise caution, prioritizing safety amidst the inclement weather.
