NEM onset or not, all rainfall from October 1 is considered under NEM quota stastically, so NEM onset is just for a press meet announcement, it does not signify anything else. From today veppasalanam rains will start in North, Delta and Interior Tamil Nadu and expected to continue for 5 days. As long it rains, why bother if the clouds are from west or east.
With the new circulation in Bay of Bengal this one is very broad one and weak, so this will move in lower latitude. Unlike the previous two lows this will give good rains to North Tamil Nadu in the coming days.
Today Delta belt Nagai, Tiruvarur, Karaikkal, Thanjavur, Chennai, KTCC, Pondy, Cuddalore, Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram, Vellore and Ranipet districts will be in action. In the hills side, Kodai, Nilgiris belt (ooty – Kotagiri – Kodanadu region), Erode around Sathayamangalam belt, Yercaud, Kodaikanal belt will all see rains.
Next 4 days looks very good for North Tamil Nadu and lets enjoy these spells 1st rather than worrying about onset of NEM
