Dry and hot weather on the cards for TN

Owing to weak monsoon conditions, clearer skies and low moisture content in the air, heat has spiked across most parts of Tamilnadu reminding of early Summer conditions. Though it’s not uncommon, the heat is certainly felt given the poor rainfall realised so far in the state. Day time temperatures will touch 38/39C in isolated parts of interior TN and night times continue to remain warm. Humidity will be lesser making for somewhat bearable conditions in interiors. Rains if any will be isolated in one or two places and majority of the state will slip into drier climes.

Rest of South Peninsula continue to remain dry as monsoon winds have completely died down. But scenario in Central India is in stark contrast to the south where yet another seasonal monsoon system hurtles its way towards Odisha. Heavy to very heavy rains are forecast for parts of Odisha, Chattisgarh. Monsoon withdrawal from North West India will be delayed in view of aforementioned system.
