The city will experience intermittent showers in the next 48 hours, according to the Regional Meteorological Centre here.
While cyclone Bulbul is heading towards West Bengal and Bangladesh, several parts in northern Tamil Nadu may get intermittent showers.
The cyclonic storm which is moving northwards is likely to weaken and may cross between West Bengal and Bangladesh coasts. Strong winds at a speed of 130-140 kmph and reaching up to 155 kmph are likely to gust through the north Bay of Bengal. This would lead to phenomenal sea condition in that region. Hence the fishermen from the state have been advised not to venture into that area for the next 24 hours.
The regional meteorological centre also issued a heavy rain warning to isolated places in various districts, including Salem, Theni, Dindigul, Coimbatore, The Nilgiris, Madurai, Namakkal, Vellore, and Ramanathapuram across the state. Apart from this many other parts may also witness thunderstorm with lightning coupled with moderate to heavy rains on Sunday and Monday.
The sky would be partly cloudy and light rain is likely to occur in some areas. The maximum and minimum temperatures may be around 35 degree Celsius and 26 degree Celsius respectively for the next 48 hours.
On Saturday, the weather stations at Nungambakkam and Meenambakkam recorded a maximum temperature of 33.9 degree Celsius and 33.2 degree Celsius respectively. The minimum temperature in Nungambakkam was 27 degree Celsius, while Meenambakkam 26.2 degree Celsius.
