Breeze Gives

CHENNAI:For the second time in a week, the weather has taken a sharp turn. But this time, its for the better, with the city seeing a more breezy pleasant weather setting in place of the unrelenting heat of the past few days.

It may rain sporadically all over the area in the coming days” says SR Ramanan, director of Area Cyclone Warning Centre of the Regional Meteorological Department. The convection, a mixture of heat and moisture carrying clouds, is said to cause a milder weather as compared to the beginning of the week.

“It was humid inside a movie theatre. That was how terrible the week started. Now, I could even go out walking during late afternoon,” says B Chethana, a Thiruvanmiyur resident. The current moisture carrying west-winds will decide the course of the weather in the coming days, which is forecast to remain pleasant with a window for a little bit of rainfall.

“The weather is predicted to go as high as 38 degree Celsius and dip to 28 degrees for the next two days, with a possibility of rain,” says SB Thampi, the Deputy Director of Regional Meteorological Department.

“I didn’t switch on the ac all day. Even the tap water which is usually warm unless there are rains, was surprisingly normal today” says Akshay Nair of Teynampet.

The convection currently affecting North Tamil Nadu could bring thunderstorms across the region in addition to the hailstorm recently witnessed in otherwise torrid places like Vellore and Cuddalore. “The interior-northern regions might see more of the said thunderstorms,” adds Ramanan.
