Chennai: After more than a week of sunshine, many areas in Tamil Nadu experienced sharp showers since last night, even as the Meterological office predicted isolated heavy rains in parts of South India in the next 48 hours.

The showers caught office goers and school going children by surprise.

The Meterological office said isolated heavy rain would occur over north coastal Tamil Nadu, south Tamil Nadu and Puducherry in the next 48 hours.

Tiruvarur and Tarangambadi (Nagapattinam) each recorded 6 cm, while Karaikal and Tiruthuraipoondi (Tiruvarur) registered five cm each. Madukkur (Thanjavur), Mannargudi and Muthupet (both Tiruvarur district), Nagapattinam and Chennaiu received 3 cm.

The Met office forecast valid until November 19 said rain or thundershower would occur at many places over coastal Tamil Nadu and Puducherry and at a few places over interior Tamil Nadu. Isolated rain or thundershowers may occur over coastal Andhra Pradesh, Rayalaseema, Kerala and South interior Karnataka. Mainly dry weather would prevail over coastal and North interior Karnataka, Telangana and Lakshadweep.

In Chennai, the sky would be generally cloudy with one or two spells of rain or thundershowers, it said.
