VELLORE: Rain lashed Vellore and its suburbs on Monday night, bringing relief to the locals who were experiencing an extended ‘Kathiri’ (dog days) which ended on May 28.

During the ‘kathiri’, the region saw rainfall for five to six days.

The 24-day ‘kathiri’ this year had peaked at 42.2 degrees Celsius but the heat was restricted to less than four days. When people heaved a sigh of relief at the end of the dog days, the mercury began to shoot up in the following days, which made them wonder whether the region was facing a climate change. 

Putting an end to all the predictions, the rain lashed most parts of the district on Monday. Tirupattur received 19 mm rainfall, followed by Ambur (18.8), Alangayam (12.6), Kaveripakkam (10.2), Arakonam, Gudiayttam, Sholinghur, Arcot (8 each), Vaniyambadi (6.4) and Melalathur (5.2).

The average rainfall recorded was 13.12 mm on Monday, according to the revenue, administration, disaster management and mitigation departments.

Meanwhile heavy rainfall was reported in various parts of Villupuram district.
