Rain activities have increased over Kerala for the last few days. Moderate showers have already been received at many places. During the last 24 hours, Kochi received 11 mm rains, Trivandrum 24 mm, and Alapuzha recorded 21 mm rains.
The reason for these rains is the Cyclonic Circulation persisting over the Comorin areas. Also, a Low Pressure Area has developed over the Southeast Arabian Sea and adjoining equatorial Indian Ocean. This system will further move in Northwest direction to become a Well Marked Low Pressure Area in the next two days. Another Low Pressure Area is likely to form over Lakshadweep Area.
The combined effect of these weather systems will be further felt over Kerala in terms of moderate to heavy rains for the next 24 to 48 hours. After December 2, the rains will once again subside as the system will move in Northwest direction away from Kerala. However, the sea conditions over Kerala coast are expected to remain rough to very rough for at least the next two to three days. Strong winds are also expected to blow in the coastal areas. Therefore, fishermen are advised not to venture into the sea for at least next two days.
