The start of May signifies the hottest Chennai Summer period coinciding with the கத்திரி & அக்னிநட்சத்திரம் period in the Indian system of following weather. Yesterday was no different with the temperatures in Chennai and most parts of Tamil Nadu notching up a couple of degrees across the board. Karur Paramati was the hottest at 41.5 degrees while Salem, Vellore & Tiruttani also crossed 41 degrees.
Like yesterday parts of Kerala, South TN, Interior Karnataka, Rayalseema region and Telengana could receive isolated spells of rains under the influence of the prevailing Line of Wind Discontinuity. Northeast India will continue its pattern of almost daily rains in the region. After going through temperatures in the region of 45 degrees parts of Rajasthan could get some spells of rains under the influence of the incoming Western Disturbance.
Its going to be another hot day for most of South India with particularly Coastal AP and North Tamil Nadu bearing the brunt of the high day time temperatures. There is a fair possibility of places like Vellore & Tiruvallur districts recording temperatures in the region of 42 degrees.
As explained above Places in North Tamil Nadu are likely to see mostly temperatures in the region of 39 / 40 degrees. We are likely to to see both Chennai Nungambakkam and Meenambakkam cross the 100°F mark today. Among the major cities possibly Trichy along with Vellore is likely to see the hottest conditions in the state.
