We are on the verge of reaching the fag end of pre-Monsoon season now. It is just about a week left for the onset of Southwest Monsoon over Kerala which is the first Indian state to relish Monson showers.
As Southwest Monsoon is predicted to make an early onset over the state, it has further shrunk the pre-Monsoon season for the state.
As already reiterated by Skymet Weather, May is the peak pre-Monsoon month that gathers the maximum amount of rainfall. So far, the first two weeks of May have seen good rainfall activity with an increased rain surplus. Skymet has already predicted the rainfall activity to reduce in the third week which happened.
The first week recorded a total of 64.8 mm of rains as against the actual of 34.2 mm, making it 89% rain surplus. Meanwhile, the second week’s rain summed up to a total of 71.8 mm against the normal of 48.1 mm, which was 49% on the surplus side.
