Weather news: The northwestern regions of India have started saying goodbye to the southwestern monsoon. This descent sets the stage for the onset of the northeast monsoons, which during the winter months bring heavy rains, especially in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and parts of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.
Until the reverse monsoon rains hit the southern land, the rain systems that are currently brewing in the surrounding seas will continue to bring more rainfall to the region.
In parts of southern India, there have been repeated rains since the beginning of this week. On October 7, notable rainfall was recorded in Chitradurga (70.2 mm), Shimoga (28.5 mm), Anantapuramu (24 mm), Belgaum (20.8 mm), Malappuram (19.6 mm), Chennai (19 , 3 mm), Mahe (11.8 mm) and Guntur (11.4 mm).
IMD’s latest forecast
According to the latest Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast, these wet conditions are created by a cyclonic circulation over the east-central Arabian Sea off the coast of Karnataka. The system is expected to persist for the next 4 days while moving slightly to the north.
Furthermore, a trough extends from this cyclonic circulation over the east-central Arabian Sea to the west-central Bay of Bengal (bordering the Andhra Pradesh coast), across south interior Karnataka and Rayalaseema.
The combination of these conditions will continue to cause rainfall in many parts of southern India. There is a high probability of light to moderate rains in the region during the next 4 days.
Weather news for south India tomorrow
In addition, there were particularly heavy rains in the southern interior of Karnataka and Rayalaseema on Friday, October 8.
Additionally, Kerala and the Karnataka coastline will experience isolated heavy rains for the next four days, with the same kind of weather hitting Tamil Nadu on Sunday and Monday.
Precipitation activity is expected to increase further from this weekend due to the likely formation of cyclonic circulation in the Bay of Bengal. Initially, this system was supposed to become more marked and turn into a depression, but according to the latest forecast from The Weather Channel’s Met team, this escalation now seems unlikely.
Still, the system will have some impact on the southern region of the Indian peninsula, especially the southeastern parts of the country.
