Rain, and thunderstorms likely in Chennai, and suburbs during next 48 hrs: IMD


The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted rains and thunderstorms in Chennai and its suburbs during the next 48 hours.

Maximum and minimum temperatures are likely to settle at 37 degrees Celsius and 27 degrees respectively. An IMD official told IANS that this is due to the speed in the change of westerlies.

Meteorologists said that the westerlies pushed the thunderstorms or rain clouds forming over the interior areas towards the coast that had led to widespread rains in the city on Friday and this is likely to continue during the next 48 hours.

The weatherman also said that while the westerlies are gaining strength and the southwest monsoon active over the West coast, the western ghats block the flow of winds leading to rains.

The weather department also said that it is likely good if the rains continue for the next five days in Chennai and the adjoining districts of Tamil Nadu.
