Chennai, Dec 1 (IBNS) : Cyclone Nada, heading towards Tamil Nadu and Puducherry in the Bay of Bengal, is weakening and is likely to make landfall in the very early hours of Friday near Cuddalore.

NDTV quoted the  Met office as saying that it may downgraded to being called a "deep depression" rather than a cyclone which was supposed to hit coastal Tamil Nadu.

Reports said  It is currently about 350 km away from Tamil Nadu capital Chennai, which has been cloudy since morning with mild showers in some areas.

The Met office that heavier rain is likely Chennai and in other parts of coastal Tamil Nadu on Thursday and Friday.

Teams of the national disaster response force or NDRF have been posted in Cuddalore with both Tamil Nadu and Puducherry being on  alert since Wednesday.

While fishermen have been called in from the sea, schools are closed in Tamil Nadu's northern coastal districts like Chennai, Nagapattinam and Cuddalore and in Puducherry for the next two days.
