Down below Tamilnadu would remain dry today as the pace of mid level westerlies would prevent the development of any significant Thunderstorms. But districts near Western ghats eg. Ooty, Coimbatore, Theni, Tirunelveli and Kanyakumari especially areas in windward side as usual would have plenty of rains.
