Easterly Wave To Ignite Showers In Tamil Nadu

Sharp showers are likely in many parts of Tamil Nadu including Chennai, as moisture streams into the state from the Bay of Bengal under the influence of an easterly wave. Morning showers in the coastal areas will progress into evening showers in the interiors, as Tamil Nadu ticks ever closer to reaching its long term NEM rainfall average. On the other hand, moisture incursion from the tropics into the northern plains orchestrated by an active western disturbance will catalyse isolated showers in central India with heavier rainfall and hailstorms in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Nepal.
