A box of low at mean ocean level runs from Comorin-Maldives territory to Karnataka coast. Affected by these frameworks, separated substantial downpours with moderate tempests and lightning are conceivable over Tamil Nadu during November 6-8. The remainder of the nation is probably going to observe dry climate until November 12

In this period, different fragments of India may stay dry, with the leftover bits of southern peninsular, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, northeastern and eastern pieces of India encountering beneath typical precipitation. Odds of a low-pressure framework shaping over the focal Bay of Bengal during the centre of the third week stay high. 

In the last week, especially between November 20-26, precipitation is required to be beneath typical over extraordinary south peninsular India and Andaman and the Nicobar Islands, while ordinary to better than average rainfall has been anticipated over the western Himalayan district.
