According to weathermen, temperatures are likely to remain near normal in most parts of the state, with winds likely to converge in southern and western regions causing rains.
“Numerical models indicate that most parts of Tamil Nadu will see near normal or slightly below normal temperatures during the afternoon in the next two days. In certain places in northern parts, mercury may be down by nearly two to three degrees Celsius,” said an official at the RMC. However, chances for downpour in Chennai are less. Stating that Nungambakkam recorded 35.2 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, the official said the maximum day-time temperature on Thursday would hover around 36 degrees Celsius.
Speaking to DT Next, a city-based weather blogger said, “This year’s Kathiri or peak summer season has been subdued in the State so far. Even the interior areas have been spared of the harsh summer heat that normally prevails during this period.”
