Rain Kerala post

Southwest Monsoon continues to remain active over the southern states of Karnataka and Kerala. In the last 24 hours, parts of both the regions have witnessed light to moderate rains.

All thanks to a cyclonic circulation which is seen over Southeast Arabian Sea off Kerala Coast. In addition to this, a north-south trough is also seen extending from South Gujarat up to this circulation.

In a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Tuesday, Haveri recorded a good 35 mm of rains, Dharwad 28 mm, Karwar 28 mm, Belagavi 16 mm, Mangaluru 16 mm, Belgaum 16 mm, Punaluru 8 mm, Palakkad 7 mm, Thiruvananthapuram 7 mm, Kannur 5 mm, Honnavar 4 mm, Agumbe 3 mm and Raichur 2 mm.

Now, the cyclonic circulation has moved towards Lakshadweep area and the trough also shifted slightly westwards. As a result we expect rains to decrease over these states but coastal areas will continue with light to moderate showers. We do not expect much change in rain statistics but on and off rains will continue and complete dry spell is not expected.
