Rain to increase in south India

September 1, 2013 5:40 PM |

After days of scanty rain, the weather may finally change in south India. Latest forecasts show that rain is likely to increase in most parts of south India, including rain shadow areas of Tamil Nadu. “A fresh monsoon surge and a trough near Kerala may give fairly widespread, moderate rain of up to 20mm at Kerala. There are also chances of heavy rain, between 40 to 50mm, in many pockets of the state”, informed, Mahesh Palawat, Head of the Meteorological Team at Skymet Weather.

“South Tamil Nadu, interiors of Karnataka and parts of Andhra Pradesh are also expected to have rain this week. Chennai could have up to 7mm of rain tomorrow, whereas Hyderabad and Bangalore could have 3mm and 15mm of rain respectively. Rain is expected to continue in peninsular India for the next four to five days but may decrease in Karnataka in the next 48hours”, he added.

He further added that the west and the east coast of peninsular India could have light rain but the monsoon surge may not reach up till Konkan and Goa, leaving the weather dry there. Temperatures may show no significant change due to this development. Mercury levels may drop marginally, by a degree or two in Kerala and Karnataka.
