The average rainfall received in Tamil Nadu and Chennai is more than normal during the northeast monsoon season, which started in October, weather experts said. They added that little has been learnt from 2015 devastating floods that killed more than 400 people across the state.

The average rainfall received from the northeast monsoon season is 449 mm and 784 in Tamil Nadu and Chennai, respectively, according to Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) data. In 2020, this was in excess as the city and state received 477mm and 1,040mm respectively.

“This year the chances of receiving above-normal rainfall in November is very high,” says independent weather blogger Pradeep John. “We have received 330 mm of rain from the northeast monsoon already, which is almost 75% of average, and we still have 50 days to go.”
