After 2-3 days break, pre-Monsoon weather activities will once again start over many parts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala. These weather activities will take place together with the formation of a cyclonic circulation over inner parts of Kerala and a depression extending up to Comorin area.

As a result there will be on and off rainfall & thundershower activities in many parts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala in the next three to four days. Although the intensity of these weather activities will not be very high but few moderate spell are likely over several places of both these Southern Indian states.

On the other hand, Coastal Tamil Nadu & Puducherry that includes Chennai, Thanjavur, Karaikal, Cuddalore & Nagapattinam will stay almost dry with high day temperatures. But light thunderstorm action may have an effect on few of these places.

This means, pre-Monsoon activities are going to pick up speed in southern parts of India once again. The most affected regions will be interior parts of both Tamil Nadu as well as Kerala. As the rains will not be heavy, flood like situations will be avoided and these rains will be helpful for the crops in the states.

The majority of water reservoirs in Tamil Nadu are in bad state with less than 20 percent of water availability. Thus, it is clear that the state is waiting for the start of Monsoon keenly that usually takes places in the first week of June.
