==============================
Monsoon rainfall in Ghats to continue
-------------------------------
Another Active rainfall day in the Cards with rains in the Ghats in Coimbatore (Valparai zone), Nilgiris, Kanykakumari, Theni, Dindigul and Tirunelveli. Pollachi might get something today. Udumalpet again hit or miss. Palani more or less confirmed rains. There is chance of heavy rainfall in the Ghats.

Models are predicting heavy rains for Dinidgul but i am not sure whether it will happen or not.

Areas close to monsoon zone
-------------------------
District such as Coimbatore non mountain zone, Erode-Tiruppur-Salem - Namakkal all might rains. Since Salem is going to get rains. Bangalore too will get rains. Krishnagiri and Dharmapuri too has chance of rains in some places.

Delta belt and Cuddalore zone
-----------
Delta belt too will continue to get rains. There is chance in Ariyalur and Pudukottai district too. Cuddalore too might chip in. The Virudhunagar - madurai - Sivaganga too might get rains.

Chennai and nearby districts Convective Rainfall - The love affair is all set to continue.
----------------
The Vellore - Tiruvallur - Kancheepuram belt will again see fast moving clouds. Though it might rain intense it will be all fast moving clouds because of the strong westerlies.

Chennai - I saw alto cumulus clouds. Shows sign of abundant moisture and the sun is shining bright. So good chance of over head cloud formation when sea breeze moves in. After that again storms may move from vellore belt. If storms converge over Chennai then we might get good rainfall. Yesterday they converged over Gumdipoondi - Ponneri belt. The Rainfall in mm ending 8.30 am on 20.08.2017 in and around Chennai Region,
---------------------
Gumidipoondi - 71 mm
Kadambathur - 32 mm
Ponneri - 28 mm
Arakonam - 20 mm
Redhills - 18 mm
Puzhal - 16 mm

Tiruttani - 8 mm
Tiruvalangadu - 8 mm
Poonamalle - 6 mm
Avadi - 7 mm
Ambattur - 5 mm

Low pressure in Maharashtra to fizzle out by Tuesday so rains in Hills will reduce while convective rains will increase again.
==========================
So again convective rains are going to sizzle in Tamil Nadu as the westerlies will slow down after the low up north dies down. While Rains in Ghats will slow down from Tuesday.

In total the record August is set to continue. I am just eager to see by 31st August where Tamil Nadu stands.
