Overcast: It was time to take out the umbrellas again on Wednesday.

CHENNAI: A trough of low pressure formed over the southwest Bay of Bengal off the Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu coast brought light showers in the city on Wednesday.

The city that has been experiencing a chilly weather for over a fortnight now saw the minimum temperature increasing to 22 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, which is two degrees above the normal during this season. This helped in reducing the mist too.

Residents across the city said the sky was overcast in the morning and light showers were experienced in many localities only afternoon. Several motorists were forced to scurry for cover under tree shades and bus shelters due to the showers.

Meteorological Department officials said Nungambakkam recorded 5.8 mm of rainfall and Meenambakkam 4.2 mm of rainfall during the 12-hour reading that ended at 8.30 p.m. on Wednesday. They, however, added that the northeast monsoon was over.

The department forecasts a partly cloudy sky and a possibility of light showers in some areas on Thursday too.
