Kerala Rains

The state of Kerala has been witnessing heavy rains since the past many days and in the last 24 hours also fairly widespread rains were seen over many parts and were mostly heavy in intensity. However, most parts saw rains below the 100 mm mark.

In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Tuesday, Kochi saw 95 mm of rains, Punalur 76 mm, Alappuzha 65 mm, Kozhikode 63 mm, Karipur 52 mm, Kannur 56 mm, and Thiruvananthapuram 23 mm.

Today also, Monsoon surge will remain active over the state of Kerala and heavy rains will be seen in many parts of Kerala. Tomorrow onward, the intensity of Monsoon rains will start to reduce gradually as the surge will begin to weaken from the region.

Thus, tomorrow, we expect moderate showers with isolated heavy spells. Thereafter, the intensity of rains will reduce further and by August 17, only light rains with a couple of moderate rains will be seen.

Thus, until August 21, no active Monsoon surge will be seen over the state which means relief is on cards for Kerala as of now at least.

However, flood conditions will continue to persist, remaining grim for a couple of more days. The state will take a while to get back to normalcy and flood waters to completely recede from the region.
