The formation of a trough over south west bay off Sri Lanka is likely to bring heavy rains over many coastal areas, the regional meteorological centre (RMC), Chennai, has predicted. "Many areas of Puducherry, Cuddalore, Villupuram, Thanjavur, Nagapattinam, Ramanathapuram and Tiruvarur will experience isolated, heavy rainfall," met officials said.

The forecast is unlikley to bring cheer to the agrarian community, which has already suffered damage to crops over six lakh hectares in the delta areas. The North East (NE) monsoon, occuring between October and December, has been active over many districts this year, most recently in the wake of cyclone Nisha which brushed past the Tamil nadu coast in the last week of November. It crossed near Karaikal, which falls within the union territory of Puducherry, on November 27, and by the time the rains abated in the first week of December.
