After recording moderate to heavy rains for consecutive days, Kerala and Karnataka is now set to witness week Monsoon conditions. According to weathermen, intensity of rains has already reduced during the last couple of days and both the neighbouring states have recorded light to moderate showers only.
In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Tuesday, Karwar recorded 36.8 mm of rains, Kochi 38 mm, M.O Airport 15 mm, Thiruvananthapuram 12 mm, Kochi 9 mm, Kozhikode 7 mm, Mangalore, Honavar 6 mm, Haveri 3.4 mm, Cannur 2 mm and Alappuzha 0.3 mm.
As per Skymet Weather, the off-shore trough that has been extending along the coast of Karnataka and Kerala coast has now weakened. However, the trough is still capable of giving light to moderate rain and thundershower activities for another 24 hours.
Thereafter, it is anticipated that the intensity of showers would reduce further over Kerala and Karnataka. Thus, in the coming days, scattered light rains are likely over Kerala and Karnataka.
With Monsoon rains receding, the day temperatures would now also increase, leading to warm and humid weather.
However, this decline in rains is not a cause to worry as waxing and waning of Monsoon rains is a normal process during the season. We expect Monsoon rains to revive once again around June 19 over Kerala and Karnataka.
Southwest Monsoon had made an early onset over the state of Kerala, while made a timely onset over Karnataka. Both the states witnessed heavy to extremely heavy rains between June 7 and June 9. With these hefty showers, Kerala is rain surplus by 95 percent as on June 12 and Karnataka by 40 percent.
