A low-pressure system, which formed on Saturday, now lies off the southeastern coast of Nicobar Islands over the Andaman Sea and will continue to move westwards. The system will reach Sri Lanka and south Tamil Nadu coast from Wednesday to Friday and will pass the southern tip of the subcontinent on Friday, and off the south coast of Lakshadweep on next Monday. This system may not develop too fast during the above period, hence the threat of strong winds remains low.

The system may induce heavy rains over parts of Tamil Nadu on Wednesday, especially over the coastal areas. Scattered to widespread rainfall is forecast over Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Karaikal, Kerala, Lakshadweep, Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema on Tuesday and Wednesday.
