The Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted heavy to very heavy rains in 10 districts of Tamil Nadu on Monday.  The IMD  said that the deep depressions that have prevailed over Sri Lankan areas are likely to become a depression over the Kanniyakumari sea and adjoining areas.

The depression, according to the IMD is likely to move further west- northwestwards and weaken over the Southeast Arabian sea.  This depression would lead to heavy to very heavy rains in many regions of south Tamil Nadu and in some places of north Tamil Nadu.

Heavy to very heavy rains are expected in Theni, Dindigul, Madurai, Sivaganga, Ramanathapuram, Virudhunagar, Tenkasi, Thoothukudi, Tirunelveli and Kanniyakumari districts.

The sky conditions of Chennai city are likely to be partly cloudy in the city and suburbs in the next 48 hours. Light to moderate rains accompanied by a thunderstorm is likely to occur in a few places.

The IMD also said that from December 27 to 29, light to moderate rain is likely to occur in one or two places.
