CHENNAI: Fishermen in Tamil Nadu are advised not to venture into the sea till September 12 due to a low-pressure area formed over the Andhra coast, a warning issued by the Regional Meteorological Center (RMC) on Friday.

"Strong winds with speeds reaching 30 kmph to 40 kmph are likely to prevail over the Gulf of Mannar and the adjoining south Tamil Nadu coast. And, for trawlers venturing near the Andhra Pradesh coast, they are advised to avoid fishing on the Karnataka coast and north Andhra Pradesh coast and adjoining the West-central Bay of Bengal. As squally weather with speed winds at 45 kmph to 55 kmph," said a senior RMC official.

The low-pressure area is likely to move Northwest, and when it gets intensified the wind speed decreases for Tamil Nadu. The centre forecasts light rain over the northern part of the State, including Chennai, Kancheepuram, Chengalpattu and Tiruvallur. It is expected to reduce gradually until an atmospheric circulation in the Tamil Nadu coastal region.

A weather blogger stated, "As a low-pressure area formed over the Andhra coast, monsoon 2022 will once again bring enhanced rainfall activity over Central India. Consequently, rains associated with thunderstorms in leeward Tamil Nadu will reduce for the next 2 weeks from today."

According to RMC, the highest amount of rainfall during the last 24 hours was recorded in Coimbatore 7 cm, while the Nilgiris recorded 5 cm, and Erode 2 cm of rainfall.
