South TN Rain tapers off

It rained gloriously in parts of Southern Tamil Nadu for the past 1 week. As all good things must come to an end, this rain spell too has already started to peter out since yesterday. Yet parts of South Tamil Nadu especially near western Ghats and some coastal areas could still sneak in a few odd Thunderstorms today too as the Trough of low around Maldives area still persists.

Meanwhile a string of Western disturbances in the Himalayan region might bring scattered Thunderstorms and hail over J&K, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana and NCR while a cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan with a trough running upto Karnataka might bring Thunderstorms to Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana and North Interior Karnataka. Kerala and Northeastern states too would have Thunderstorms today.
