Chennai Rainfall Update: Rains in Tamil Nadu will take a back seat for a few days from Monday as the Low-Pressure Area (LPA) is likely to move northwestwards, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said in a statement. LPA is the reason for heavy rains in the past few days, it added.
Low-Pressure Area is likely to move towards Kerala and merge with the Arabian Sea, the weather department predicted. It also predicted that another PLA is likely to form around the Andaman and Nicobar Sea around November 16-17.
According to the news agency IANS, the Met department officials predicted that under the influence of this new LPA, heavy rains are likely to occur at isolated places over the Nilgiris, Tiruppur, Dindigul, Coimbatore, Madurai, Theni, Virudhunagar, Thoothukudi, Tirunelveli and Kanniyakumari districts of Tamil Nadu.

It may be noted that, as per IANS report, since the arrival of Northeast monsoon in Tamil Nadu on October 29, there have been heavy rains in almost all districts of the state. Heavy rains have inundated many places and schools and colleges were closed on Friday and Saturday due to the heavy rains and inundation.
State Disaster Management volunteers were also kept ready by the revenue department of Tamil Nadu based out of each district for any eventuality, said IANS.
With the present LPA moving out of the state, the possibility of heavy rains has come down for a few days until the formation of a new LPA in the Andaman Sea which is likely to happen from November 16 and 17.
