After few days of intense heatwave conditions temperatures are expected to ease over most of Tamil Nadu bringing some respite to the interior areas. Yesterday itself a lot of places showed marginal reduction in temperatures with only Karur recording above 40ºC unlike the previous day when Karur, Dharmapuri, Salem, Tiruttani, Madurai, Vellore & Trichy recorded above 40ºC.
Today the temperatures are ease further as Easterlies strengthen and keep a firm check over the temperatures. Extreme West Tamil Nadu & parts of South Tamil Nadu though will continue to see hot conditions with maximum temperatures staying above the 100ºF over many places today. While places like Madurai, Tirunelveli may not see immediate respite but heatwave conditions though will reduce to some extent.
With the Easterlies strengthening coastal areas stand to record light rains at places, while the interior areas benefit from remnant moisture travelling across the land and developing into thunderstorms through convective heating. With parts of South TN continuing to boil places along the Western Ghats stand a chance for getting evening thunderstorms with one or two places likely to see moderate rains during the late night hours.
