Chennai, Oct 23 (UNI) After four days of heavy battering, Chennai people woke up to a bright sunny morning as the trough of low pressure moved to Gulf of Mannar, today.

The heavy rainfall experienced in some parts of Tamil Nadu and Chennai subsided as the trough over South West Bay and the adjoining West Central Bay, moved towards Gulf of Mannar extending upto West Central Bay across South West Bay off Tamil Nadu Coast.

Under its influence, rain or thundershowers were likely to occur at few places over Tamil Nadu and Puducherry during the next 24 hours.

Chennai City would have a generally cloudy sky with the possibility of showers or thundershowers.

With this, the possibility of heavy rainfall in Tamil Nadu has receded, weather office sources said.

Meanwhile, life limped back to normalcy in the city as stagnating rain water receded in several areas as the showers abated since last night.

But for a brief spell in the wee hours of today, there were no rainfall in the city.

The sun shone with its full mite bringing back smiles on the faces of festival shoppers with Diwali just days away.

Tamil Nadu Local Administration Minister M K Stalin visited the rain-affected areas in the city and said government would take all steps to tackle water stagnation in several areas.
