According to the JTWC…satellite imagery depicts a large area of deep convection sheared to the west of a fully exposed low level circulation center as it made landfall near Chennai, India.

Weather observations from Chennai have shown a decrease and rise in surface pressure over the past three hours indicating TC 04B has made its way over land.

Surface wind observations from Chennai at the time of landfall were 25 knots with gusts to 40 knots. TC 04B will continue to weaken as it passes over the terrain of southern India over the next 24 hours.

The remnants of TC 04B will continue tracking west-northwestward over southern India and may move over the Arabian Sea, however, there is low
probability of regeneration.
