Chennai and TN rain update - Seems Chennai (some part of the city or other) is destined to get rains on daily basis

By Tamil Nadu Weatherman on 17 Aug 2017

Atlast power came in RA Puram. For the past few days because of the heat and Chennai got cloud formation over the head and rains lashed the city with the abundant energy and moisture from sea breeze.

Not today, it was hazy all day so no chance of over head storms. We needed something to come from the interior districts. Yep and its coming from Vellore towards the city. So Another rainy day on cards for Chennai.

Low Pressure Area is going to form in North Bay of Bengal close to Odisha / North AP coast. I am sure u will hear in the news..."Vaanga kadalil Puthiya Katruaalutha paguthy - Chennai vaanilai mayyam Aarivippu". Remember my post. This Low Pressure will not bring direct rains. Nammakku always heat related Convective rains thaan. Have u ever witnessed day full of rains because of low pressure during June-September. The answer is No. It rains only in the evenings / Night. But the same low pressure if it forms in NE monsoon during October-December, it will rain even in the mornings. So dont be threatened by breaking news in Media about Low pressure Formation blah blah blah.

Enjoy the rains.
