There will be light to moderate rainfall, with heavy rainfall over isolated areas in coastal and south interior Karnataka, north Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, coastal Andhra Pradesh, Rayalaseema, and south Konkan and Goa till November 20.

It will continue to move towards the Indian landmass and reach the south Andhra Pradesh-north Tamil Nadu coast on November 18, the weather department said. Another low pressure area has developed over the east-central Arabian Sea off the coast of Karnataka under the influence of a cyclonic circulation.
