Rain-battered Cuddalore is likely to get heavy to very heavy showers, Meteorological department said, adding that today's showers were due to a twin weather system, including formation of a new trough.
The city, meanwhile, is limping back to normalcy with ramped up relief efforts and improved transportation and communication systems.
"A trough of low pressure has formed and lies over South West bay off Tamil Nadu coast", said a Met official.
Also, yesterday's low pressure area over Sri Lanka and adjoining Comorin area off South Tamil Nadu coast has moved westward and now lies over Comorin area and its neighbourhood.
"As a result of the two systems, coastal and interior Tamil Nadu and Puducherry will receive rainfall in the next 24-48 hours and some areas like Cuddalore are likely to see heavy to very heavy showers", he said.
The city, which has been experiencing intermittent rains, would continue to be cloudy and rain or thundershowers are likely, he added.
As a precautionary measure, the state government has declared holidays for schools and colleges tomorrow in the districts, including Chennai, Kanchipuram and Tiruvallur. With an improvement in the situation, daytime commercial flights from here began with the first Air India flight to Port Blair taking off this morning.
