It seems that there is no sign of relief for Chennai people. The Met office has predicted about 2 cm-6 cm of rain on Sunday and it is expected that will continue until Wednesday.

According to weather blogger Pradeep John, "This will be the second spell of the northeast monsoon. Usually, one spell brings rainfall for only 3-4 days, but the first spell had brought rainfall for nine days." 

The coastal districts will likely to get rainfall, precisely in the stretch connecting Chennai and Nagapattinam.

As per the area cyclone warning centre director S Balachandran, the city will witness sporadic showers on Sunday.

Most parts of north coastal TN and some parts of south coastal TN will get rainfall on Sunday.  The interior districts of Chennai will face irregular rainfall.

But in between isolated rainfall, some spells will bring heavy (7-11cm) or very heavy rainfall (12-20cm) in Chennai, Kanchipuram and Tiruvallur.

According to an IMD bulletin, a fresh low-pressure area is likely to form over southeast Bay of Bengal around Tuesday.

Since October, Tamil Nadu has received 25cm, against the normal of 26cm. Chennai, however, has recorded excess rainfall, receiving 68cm against the normal of 41cm.
