According to a Times of India report, a forecast of the next 24 hours says there is a possibility of thundershower in some areas of the city.

According to Skymet Weather report, a trough has been formed off the Tamil Nadu coast due to the active passage of easterly waves over the Indian Ocean and adjoining Southwest Bay of Bengal.
