Cyclone Gaja: Heavy rains to lash South Kerala from November 16

November 13, 2018 3:41 PM |

Rain in Kerala

During the last 24 hours, few southern parts of Kerala recorded rainfall activity. In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Monday, Punalur recorded 29.4 mm of rain followed by Alappuzha 11.1 mm, Kayamkulam 6.6 mm, Vaikom 6.0 mm, Nedumangad 5.6 mm and Aryankavu 3.0 mm.

A trough which was extending from Central Bay of Bengal to South Kerala is instrumental for giving light to moderate rain activity over southern districts of Kerala.

Further also, we expect on and off light to moderate rains to continue over southern parts of Kerala till November 15. Intensity of rains will increase over the state from November 16 and many parts of Kerala will receive light to moderate rains, but the intensity will be more over Thiruvananthapuram district.

As Cyclone Gaja is expected to cross South Tamil Nadu and move in west direction the southern districts may receive heavy rains between November 16 and 17.

On and off rains will continue till November 18 and thereafter rains will become very less, and only isolated rains may continue.

At present Kerala is the only state in south peninsula which has received normal rains with 11% deficiency. However, by the end of this week we expect Kerala’s rain deficiency to come to some extent.
