NEW DELHI : The Indian Metrological Department (IMD) on Saturday, February 12, informed that heavy rainfall is very likely to occur in isolated places over south Tamil Nadu during next 24 hours. It also predicted that a Western Disturbance will affect Western Himalayan Region during 13 to 15 February and another Western Disturbance will affect northwest India from 17 to 20 February.
The weather department attributed this to a feeble trough in easterlies, seen at 0.9 km above mean sea level over Comorin Area and strong northeasterly winds are prevailing over coastal Tamil Nadu in lower tropospheric levels. Under their influence, isolated thunderstorms are very likely to continue over south Tamil Nadu-Puducherry-Karaikal and south Kerala- Mahe, the press release stated.
