CHENNAI: A low pressure area that had formed in the Bay of Bengal off the north Andhra Pradesh and the south Odisha coasts will have no impact in Tamil Nadu. According to the Met department, the formation was too far away from the State to have any effect.
In an update on the low pressure area over the west central and north west Bay of Bengal, the Met department on Wednesday said while the development would bring rains to Andhra Pradesh and Odisha regions in the next couple of days, it would have no effect in the State.
S B Thambi, deputy director of the regional meteorological centre, Chennai, said, “The low pressure is too much to the north of the State to be of any effect here. However, Chennai would continue to get the late evening and early morning rains, but not due to the low pressure.”
The Met department has forecast generally cloudy sky conditions in the city and neighbourhood with rain and thunder showers in some areas. Temperatures would linger between 32 and 26 degree Celsius.
Rain has been forecast in the districts of Coimbatore, Kancheepuram, Krishnagiri, Nilgiris, Ramanathapuram, Tirupur, Tiruvallur and Vellore.
