May 30, 2018 6:38 PM |

Kerala rain

After arriving slightly before time, Southwest Monsoon has now covered the entire state of Kerala. The Northern Limit of Monsoon (NLM) is currently passing through Shirali, Hassan, Mysuru, Kodaikanal, and Tuticorin. Moreover, conditions are now conducive for the further advancement of Southwest Monsoon into some more parts of South India and may even touch parts of Northeast India in the next 48 hours.

The arrival of Monsoon over the state brought extensive rains over almost all the stations of Kerala. This spell was under the influence of the well-marked low-pressure area in Southeast Arabian Sea, off Kerala and Karnataka coast.

In the wake of this system, moderate to heavy rains with very heavy at a few pockets continued over the state. In the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Tuesday, Kannur recorded 124.4 mm of very heavy rains, Taliparamba 119.2 mm, Kudulu 115.8 mm, Vadakara 89.4 mm, Vaikom 65. 2 mm, Irikkur 63 mm, Mananthavady 60.1 mm, Vellanikkara 55.4 mm, Piravom 55.1 mm, Thalassery 54 mm, Idukki 48 mm, Kozhikode 44.4 mm, and Kottayam recorded 23.4 mm of rains.


As per Skymet Weather, now, the weather system has weakened and has drifted away, thus, a drop in the spatial distribution of rains over the state can be expected in the next 24 hours. The northern half of the state would get to see more rains in comparison with the southern parts of Kerala.

Thereafter, 48 hours hence, a further reduction in the overall rains of the state can be expected. However, a fresh system has developed in the Central Bay of Bengal which would bring a fresh surge and revive the Monsoon rains over the state by June 4.
