Heat wave to continue over north India

With dry continental west north westerlies prevailing over north and adjoining north west, central and east India under the influence of a heat low like situation, heat wave conditions are  likely to occur over many areas with severe heat wave conditions over isolated places. In contrast to this scenario, stiff south westerlies will moderate day time temperatures over coastal stretch of Andhra Pradesh to Orissa. Enhanced moisture convergence flow in association with strong winds of a high pressure area over Bay of Bengal will lead to good rainfall activity over north east India. In the south, Tamil Nadu can expect partly cloudy skies with calm southerly winds in the early to forenoon hours and south easterlies/ east South easterlies picking from mid day and peaking in the afternoon hours will put check on temperatures in the coastal districts. Wind discontinuity may develop across ghat areas of Kerala and Karnataka later during the day bringing in some rain chances.

Chennai can expect a hot and partly cloudy day with maximum temperature settling around 36 C.

Coimbatore will be hot with a day time high settling around 37 C.

Vellore will be hot and sultry with a maximum settling around 38 C.
