Tamil Nadu is all set to continue facing moderately high temperatures as we embark on a journey towards the monsoon months. Partly cloudy skies are likely to be prevalent with slight chances of rain in isolated places in the state. Potential exists for thundershowers in the neighbouring regions of Rayalaseema and interior Karnataka.
Heavier showers are possible in the states of Odisha, West Bengal, Telangana and Maharashtra along with the adjoining parts of coastal Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. Tagging along to the west coast, heavy rains seem likely along the Konkan coast as the monsoon’s formidable flow strikes the coastline, also bringing moderate rains to Kerala.
Chennai – Hot and humid day likely with interspersed cloudy periods. Maximum temperature of 37 C likely. The odd evening shower could occur.
Madurai – The city continues to blister under maximum temperatures of 39 C. Thundershowers might occur in the afternoon.
Trichy – Balmy day on the cards as the mercury is all set to peak at 37-38 C amidst the possibilities of evening showers.
Coimbatore – Lukewarm afternoon ahead with the thermometer hitting 32-33 C. Nothing much on the rain front.
Vellore – Inveterate heat to continue to prevail, establishing maximum temperatures of 35-36 C. Showers possible.
