Kerala rains to witness a reducing trend; to intensify after June 5

May 31, 2018 5:48 PM |


As predicted by Skymet Weather, after recording some moderate to heavy showers for the last couple of days, rain over Kerala began reducing. The extent of reduction can be made from the fact that out of the 80 noted stations, only 9 stations have recorded a double-digit rainfall whereas, the remaining were seen witnessing only light spells.

Within the span of 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Wednesday, Irikkur recorded 36 mm of rains, Vellanikkara 25.2 mm, Vaikom 20 mm, Thodupuzha 18.6 mm, Mavelikkara17.2 mm, Perumbavur 15 mm, Cherthala 12 mm, Punalur 10 mm, Idukki 7.2 mm, Kochi 7 mm, and Kollam recorded light spells of 2 mm.

As per Skymet Weather, these rains were occurring due to the low-pressure area in Southeast Arabian Sea. However, the weakening and the passage of the system has resulted in dipping the rains over Kerala.


As of now, the system is expected to drift further northwards and thus, rains over the state are likely to reduce further. Though on and off light with isolated moderate rains would keep occurring over the state, heavy spells are not expected until a new surge is formed in the Arabian Sea which is not likely before June 5.
