Kerala rains have remained on the front seat for quite some time now. In fact, Pre Monsoon season did begin on a rainy note for God’s own country with rainfall activity commencing over almost the entire state now.
The last 24 hours were also not different for the state with many areas witnessing light to moderate showers. A couple of stations also saw heavy rainfall activity during the same time frame.
In a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Saturday, Punalur witnessed a whopping 37.8 Kottayam saw 1.6 mm of rains, and Kozhikode 0.8 mm. Meanwhile, traces of rains were also witnessed over the capital city of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram.
These rainfall activities were attributed to the presence of a cyclonic circulation over Southeast Arabian Sea which was once a depression giving heavy rains over Kerala and the Lakshadweep region. Along with this, a trough has also been extending along the Kerala coast from this system up to Konkan region.
Now, rainfall activity is expected to continue over the state of Kerala during the next 24 to 36 hours. Thereafter, weather is likely to clear up from the region. During this time cities of Kochi, Kozhikode, Kannur, Kasargod, Kalpetta, Thiruvananthapuram, Alappuzha, Palakkad, Malappuram, and Thrissur are likely to see light rains with isolated moderate spells.
