Weather News: Wet conditions will sweep parts of southern India till January 18, however, rainfall intensity is expected to remain significantly light.

The fresh spell of rainfall over the region will be the result of two cyclonic circulations (CC). According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), one cyclonic circulation is present over the southwest Bay of Bengal, while the other is located over south Tamil Nadu at lower tropospheric levels.

As a result, isolated light showers and thunderstorms are expected over Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry, Karaikal, Kerala and Mahe till January 18.

Tamil Nadu weatherman Pradeep John said “isolated rains in the state will continue till January 18, while MJO will enter in February.”

Many districts of Tamil Nadu including Chennai, Tiruvallur, Chengalpattu, Cuddalore, Karaikal, Tiruvarur, Thanjavur, Ranipet, Ariyallur, Madurai, Tenkasi and Kanyakumari will get light to moderate rain until January 17.
