CHENNAI: After taking a break for a day, Chennai and parts of Kancheepuram and coastal regions of Tamil Nadu received sharp showers on Tuesday.  Parts of Tiruvallur and Kancheepuram district including Tambaram and Chengalpattu and Mandaiveli, Mylapore, Royapettah, received good amount of rainfall since morning. Schools and colleges in Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram and Chennai reopened on Tuesday after the long weekend. Some colleges postponed semester examinations.

Though weather conditions led to inundation of roads and traffic snarls caused troubles to motorists, train and air services did not face any major disruption. Chennai recorded 15.7 mm of rainfall, while Nungambakkam and Meenambakkam recorded 7.1 and 14.6 mm of rainfall ending 08.30 am on Tuesday. Maximum and minimum temperature recorded was around 28 degree Celsius and 23 degree Celsius. However, several southern districts such as Nagapattinam, Tiruvarur and Cuddalore that have been experiencing heavy rains since last week had some respite on Tuesday. There were only short spells in some areas and rainfall recorded on Tuesday was comparatively less than past few days.

 

Regional Meteorological Centre has forecast more rains or thundershower at many places over South Tamil Nadu and at a few places over North Tamil Nadu and Puducherry in coming few days. “The sky condition is likely to be overcast for next 24 hours. A few spells of rain or thundershowers are likely in the city and suburbs; heavy rains can be witnessed mostly in coastal and southern parts of Tamil Nadu. There is no severe weather warning,” said G Rajendran, senior official at Met, Chennai.
