West Coast is one of the rainiest pockets during Southwest Monsoon season. Monsoon rains along the coast is mostly a continuous affair. The region has experienced a mixture of heavy to extremely heavy along with light to very light spells.

While heavy rains have not occurred over the region after the second week of July, the region has been witnessing light spells. On the last day too, rains have increased over Kerala and Karnataka.

As per Skymet Weather, due to the formation of a Depression, the speed of westerly winds from the Arabian Sea has increased, leading to activating the Monsoon surge along the western coastal belt.

In the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Tuesday, Agumbe recorded 92 mm of rains, Honavar 63 mm, Cannur 36 mm, Alappuzha 22 mm, Kozhikode 20 mm, Thiruvananthapuram 14 mm, Karipur 10 mm, Karwar 10 mm, and Mangaluru recorded 7 mm of rains.

As of now, we expect good rains to continue along the West Coast, particularly, over Kerala and Karnataka for the next 48 hours.

Thereafter, as the Depression would gradually weaken, the intensity of rain would also start reducing but on and off light to moderate spells would continue over parts of coastal Karnataka and Kerala.

As on August 6, Kerala is rain surplus by 12% and coastal Karnataka is rain deficient by 4% which is otherwise considered as normal.
