Cuddalore got 186 and 112 mm rainfall on 21 and 22nd February, 2021 respectively. But the rains were spread into 2 days because of the 8.30 am cut-off timings. Actually, the rains happened in single stretch. So close to 300 mm fell at a go in Cuddalore. Without any low pressure or even a trough of low or even a UAC, these are mind blowing rains. People in Cuddalore in particular and Pondy to a ceratain extent have witnessed once in life time February rains, which they wont forget for a while. However the years 1984, 2000 and 2002 rainfall will still stands out as great February rains for Tamil Nadu.
