Rains lash Chennai & suburbs, more predicted

Chennai: Chennai, Chengalpet and Thiruvallur districts witnessed moderate to heavy rains from this morning, even as Met experts predicted more showers for next 24 hours.

Areas such as Guindy, Saidapet, Chetpet, Egmore, Central and Broadway witnessed rians in Chennai. Many areas in its southern and western suburbs, falling in Chengalpet and Thiruvallur districts, respectively, also received heavy showers from this morning.

Tamilnadu, Kerala and Karnataka are in for inclement weather conditions in the coming days as heavy rains have been forecast due to a cyclonic circulation over the southwest Bay of Bengal adjoining Tamilnadu.

A meteorological mix with a trough running through this cyclonic circulation to the east-central Arabian Sea off Karnataka and Kerala coast also produces widespread rains.
