Chennai, Aug 13 (BPNS)
The Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) of the weather department has said that Tamil Nadu will have a surge in mercury in the days to come.
A senior official of the RMC in a statement on Sunday said, “ The trough from South Interior Karnataka to Comorin Area across Tamil Nadu at 0.9 km above mean sea level has become less marked. And as light to moderate northwesterlies/ westerlies /southwesterlies prevail over the region in the lower tropospheric level. There wont be development in cloud formation, so the maximum temperature is expected to increase by two to three degree Celsius than normal.”
The temperature may touch 40 degree Celsius in the days to come in many areas of Tamil Nadu including interior areas of the state. The RMC official however said that with the SouthWest monsoon not favourable to Tamil Nadu, the maximum temperature is expected to remain stable.
However there are possibilities of sea breeze induced storms bringing rains in Chennai and Puducherry in the days to come.
The weather stations at Nungambakkam and Meenambakkam in Chennai are likely to record maximum and minimum temperatures of 38 degree Celsius and 28 degree Celsius respectively.
