As per Skymet Weather, these rains were due to the persistence of a cyclonic circulation that can be seen over coastal Karnataka. Due to this weather system, moderate winds from the Arabian Sea have been increasing moisture over Kerala thus leading to cloud formation and finally resulting in these rains.

As of now, a trough is seen extending from South Interior Karnataka to the south-central Arabian Sea. On account of this, light to moderate rains are likely to continue over Kerala Until October 20. Mainly the districts of Southern coastal and Central Kerala are expected to get more rains in contrast with the districts lying on the north coastal belt of the state.

Thus, stations such as Alappuzha, Punalur, Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram are likely to witness good rains. While, Kozhikode, Karipur, Palakkad will get to see comparatively lesser rains. After October 20, the intensity of these rains is anticipated to witness a significant reduction though isolated light spells will continue to prevail over the state.

The maximum temperatures are also likely to remain around 30-31 degrees but the nights will be comfortable.
