Tapering rains in Tamil Nadu as Cyclone Maha moves away

After a decent run of late, NEM is expected to go back to mute mode, courtesy the away going cyclone “Maha” which is currently stationed off Karnataka Konkan coasts. As it moves further west into Central Arabian sea, prospects of rainfall further reduces as moisture is dragged on by it. With Bay of Bengal staying clear of any active weather systems, forecast is for a drying trend over Tamil Nadu. Having said that, patchy showers are still possible over few places mainly in the evening. The aforementioned forecast hold good leading upto the weekend.

Patchy rains are forecast for Maharashtra under the pull effect of Maha. Elsewhere in Peninsula, stable weather conditions would prevail barring seas off Karnataka and Konkan which would stay rough. Fresh activity in Bay of Bengal is being rooted by an oncoming system from the South China sea early next week which is forecast to set up a low pressure area in East Central Bay. Early Model guidance indicates the possibility of this system steering west towards South Peninsula for next several days.
