Convective rains sprawl across Tamilnadu

The axis of the monsoon is currently stationed near the Himalayan foothills and so are the rains which are currently confined to vast swathes of NE India, Jharkhand, parts of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh.

In the Southern Peninsula, monsoon rains had shown slight revival especially in Kerala and Coastal Karnataka and will continue for another two days, but an imminent lull is just around the corner.

In Tamil Nadu, isolated Thundershowers continue to popup in interior districts providing some respite after a scathing warm afternoon. Long range forecasts are hinting at increase in rainfall activity in the coming days owing to the evolving synoptic conditions.
