An IMD official said the rough sea conditions are due to “swelling” in the sea. A swell in the context of seas is a series of mechanical waves that propagate along the interface between water and air; they are often referred to as surface gravity waves.

“Thunderstorm accompanied with gusty winds very likely at isolated places over Tamil Nadu and Kerala,” the IMD said.

Besides this, the Met department has issued a heatwave warning in pockets of Vidarbha in Maharashtra.
