Heavy rain is expected in Chennai and the surrounding regions on Monday, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

Heavy rains drenched various portions of the state capital on Sunday night, including the Nungambakkam and Meenambakkam areas.

A persistent stretch of rain began as a drizzle on Sunday evening and quickly evolved into heavy showers due to upper air circulation.

Winds shifted to the west, resulting in thunderstorms over the city and suburbs, according to weather models.

According to the IMD, the heavy rain on Sunday foreshadows additional thunderstorms in Chennai and its suburbs in the following days, with the potential of a deluge on Monday.
