Partly cloudy to cloudy conditions are also expected offshore today and there is a possibility of scattered rain, which may be thundery occasionally.

The Met department had earlier said the state of atmospheric instability was expected to continue affecting the country due to the extension of a low-pressure system over the region, reaching its peak today.
The chances of rain are expected to continue until tomorrow morning, followed by fresh to strong northwesterly winds in some areas that will result in a drop in temperatures, the department had forecast.
