Chennai city to receive rainfall over next 24 hours

The regional meteorological department has predicted heavy rainfall in Chennai and other districts in Tamil Nadu for next 24 hours.

After Chennai witnessed a good spell of rainfall over the weekend, the Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) said the city will experience showers accompanied by thunderstorm over the next 24 hours due to cyclonic circulation in the Bay of Bengal. According to blogger Tamil Nadu Weatherman, the Kancheepuram-Tiruvallur-Chennai (KTC) belt, which received about 717 mm of rainfall until today morning, is expected to receive heavy rainfall in the leeward side today.

While the rainfall did little to increase the water level in the city’s four reservoirs – Poondi, Cholavaram, Chembarambakkam and Red Hills, it did help in the percolation of groundwater in Chennai.
