The current bout of rainfall is attributed to a low-pressure area forming over the Southeast Bay of Bengal, coupled with an upper air cyclonic circulation over the southwest Bay of Bengal and the South Andaman Sea. This weather system is expected to intensify, potentially developing into a depression over West central Bay of Bengal around November 16.

Coastal and interior districts in Tamil Nadu experienced substantial rainfall, leading to the closure of schools in Ariyalur, Thanjavur, Villupuram, Tiruvannamalai, Nagapattinam, Tiruvarur, and Cuddalore. The relentless downpour is forecasted to impact at least 15 districts, including the capital city, Chennai.
