The northeast monsoon will be delayed this time says the Meteorological Department.  The conditions prevailing in the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal have delayed the monsoon in Tamil Nadu. The storm Luban is being predicted to take the shape of a cyclone and move from the central Arabian Sea to south Oman and Yemen. Similar cyclones in the Bay of Bengal are being predicted to shape up.  This is likely to head to Orissa and Andhra Pradesh. Usually, the monsoon arrives around 20 October but the collaboration between the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal systems has changed the pattern little bit this time and hence the monsoon will be arriving late this year. Thirupuvanam of Sivaganga district received the highest rainfall.  The Meteorological Departments says Tamil Nadu can receive moderate to heavy rainfall between 4cm-12 cm and Chennai too is likely to witness the same till Wednesday which will then be followed by a break. Fishermen are asked to avoid diving into the water bodies mentioned above till the mid of October as a safety measure.
