Intermittent light to scattered rains continued in Kerala throughout the pre- Monsoon season but these rains were not enough. Thus, as on May 6, Kerala is still rain deficient by 32%. Last week, the weather of Kerala was dry due to the formation of Cyclone Fani over Bay of Bengal as the moisture remained concentrated around that weather system leaving the state of Kerala dry.
Currently, a trough is extending from South Chhattisgarh up to Comorin area across Interior Tamil Nadu. Therefore, we expect rains to occur once again over Kerala for next few days. On May 7 and 8, ie today and tomorrow, the intensity would be light and scattered in nature. While on May 9 and 10, rains might decrease and become isolated. However, between May 11-14 another spell of pre-Monsoon rain and thundershowers would hit the region. But they would be light and scattered with one or two moderate spells on May 11 and 12. The intensity is expected to increase on May 13 and 14 and give some good spells during this period.
Despite rains, not much improvement is going to be seen in rainfall deficiency but these rains would certainly make the weather in the region a little comfortable. Generally, during the month of May, pre-Monsoon season picks up pace but in the absence of any significant weather activity, not much rains have been witnessed.
