The month of October was good for the state of Kerala with rains being large excess of 55 percent, thus, Northeast Monsoon performing fairly well. However, talking about the month of November, it has been just about satisfactory. Moreover, due to rains not being observed up to the mark, the rainfall excess of October has dropped to 33 percent until November 20.
Moreover, rainfall in these twenty days of November, rains have been recorded at 102 mm against the normal of 126.7 mm. which is 20 percent less.
However, in the last 24 hours, good rains have been witnessed in a few parts with isolated heavy showers as well. In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday, Kottayam recorded a whopping 53.2 mm of rains, Kochi 18.8 mm, Kannur 11.7 mm, Thiruvananthapuram 12.6 mm, Kozhikode 12.2 mm, and Alappuzha 7.2 mm.
Now, we expect these rains to continue in the next 24 hours and remain moderate. A couple of places may see some heavy showers as well. These showers can be attributed to a Cyclonic Circulation over the Comorin region which also has a trough extending northwards.
Thereafter, rains will become light, reducing thereafter, becoming very light. However, showers may pick up again around November 28.
