Patchy rainfall likely over North Coastal Tamil Nadu

The West Central & North West Bay of Bengal off South Odisha and North AP coast is abuzz with activity, courtesy an UAC (Upper air cyclonic circulation) and this would ensure fairly widespread rains over coastal AP and south Odisha. Widespread showers are also in place for regions like NE states, Konkan & Goa, North Interior Karnataka.Tamil Nadu barring few regions of North coastal areas will see warm and dry conditions over the next few days. Isolated rain spells cannot be ruled over few pockets of western TN and ghat areas. Slightly above normal temperatures to continue over interior TN in places like Madurai, Erode, Salem and Dindigul.
