CHENNAI: Many motorists spent a lot of time on Tuesday morning manoeuvring through water-logged roads.
The rain since Monday night had left many roads inundated, including West Sivan Koil Street in Vadapalani, Flowers Road in Purasawalkam and Harleys Road in Kilpauk.
While the meteorological observatories in Nungambakkam recorded 35 mm of rainfall, Meenambakkam received 43.1 mm rainfall during the 12-hour period ending 8.30 a.m. on Tuesday. Residents of Anna Nagar East complained that an uprooted tree in R.V. Nagar was not removed for almost two hours causing inconvenience to motorists. However, for much part of Tuesday the city experienced only mild showers. Nungambakkam recorded 1.9 mm of rainfall and Meenambakkam 1.4 mm during the 12-hour period ending 8.30 p.m. The rainfall helped maintain a cool climate for the second consecutive day. The maximum temperature in both the areas was 29.2 degree Celsius, which is five degrees less than the average day temperature during the period.
Meteorological Department officials attributed the rainfall to a trough of low pressure that lies off South Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu coast.
The forecast for Wednesday is generally cloudy sky with one or two spells of rain or thundershowers.
