Simmering summer heat and thunderstorms over the weekend

Inniya “Vilambi Varuda” Tamizh Puthaandu Nalvaazhthukkal!!

Summer seldom fails. Temperatures continue to inch ahead over the state of TN and the resultant discomfort it brings in quite palpable in the form of bright sunshine, higher humidity and the associated stickiness it brings in. The weekend will be no different and possible evening thunderstorms very likely over southern and pockets of interior regions of the state. Enhanced rainfall activity coupled with squally weather likely to prevail over Comorin, Maldives and Lakshadweep areas.

Sea breeze, the sole saviour of coastal regions does seem to lose its sting as we head slowly but surely towards the business part of the summer season.

The story will be no different up north too as harsh and disconcerting weather taking control over the proceedings.
