Trough in Bay of Bengal may bring rains to city
Here’s a reason for you to step out of your house with your raincoats and umbrellas. If the reduced temperatures, by as much as two degrees Celsius, and cloudy weather through the day have been any indication, rain over the city is all but a given in the next two days.
The meteorological department predicts 3-4 mm of rainfall in the city over the next two days. This is due to the formation of a trough over the south west to west central Bay of Bengal across Sri Lanka and off the coast of Tamil Nadu and south Andhra Pradesh.
S R Ramanan, Director of Area Cyclone Warning Centre, Regional Meteorological Centre, said that the city could receive showers late on Friday night or early Saturday.
Under the influence of the trough, rain was likely in many places in Tamil Nadu’s coastal districts and a few places in interior regions, he added.
