Scattered rains for North Coastal TN

Monsoon flows are expected to weaken a tad in the coming days after a strong run in the ghats of Karnataka and Kerala for past week or so. But this would not mean abrupt stop in the rains and that it would continue as scattered to heavy along the coastal areas and adjoining ghats but not widespread. The northern advance of the monsoon will continue to remain stalled at where it is for next one week. This may not come as a relief for the plains of Central and North West India where Summer is at it peak alongside dusty winds which are blowing across.

In Tamilnadu, active monsoon conditions in the ghats of Nilgiris Coimbatore and Tirunelveli will weaken a tad and the rainfall Intensity is expected to reduce. This would also mean slight heating up of interiors of the state in the absence of otherwise pleasant Westerlies. Coastal areas as such won’t see dramatic change in the prevailing weather but for the fact that one could possibly expected a sharp shower by evening.
