As things stand models indicate this LPA to move in a more W/SW direction which could possibly play a role in how much impact Tamil Nadu will have in the days to come. Today Andaman & Nicobar Islands could see some rains with one or two places getting fairly heavy spells of rains.  Similarly thanks to the trough at surface level running along the west coast parts of Kerala could see a spell or two of rains.
