Pre Monsoon Showers in Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu

The southern peninsula of our country has lately started witnessing pre-Monsoon rain and thundershower. These activities are expected to continue further in parts of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

A Cyclonic Circulation is over Chhattisgarh and adjoining Madhya Pradesh. A trough from this system is extending up to South Tamil Nadu across Telangana, Karnataka and Kerala. This system is likely to move slowly eastward.

In the wake of these systems, rain and thundershowers were recorded at many places in Kerala, few parts of Karnataka and some parts of Tamil Nadu in last 48 hours.

The moist warm winds from the Bay of Bengal would continue to prevail over these states. The weather systems would subsequently give pre-Monsoon rain and thundershowers over these regions in the coming 48 hours as well.

Let us understand how these weather systems are likely to behave in the following states:


Light to moderate rain and thundershower with gusty winds are likely in some parts of South Karnataka and adjoining North Karnataka. These activities are likely to occur towards late afternoon and temperatures are expected to remain on the higher side.  Winds with speed of 40-50 kmph are also expected at few places.

Places like Bengaluru, Chitradurga, Gadag, Mysore and Mangalore would witness pre-Monsoon rain and thunderstorm activities. Similarly, few pockets like Belgaum, Bagalkot and Bijapur stand a chance to witness thunderstorm accompanied with lightning strikes. However, despite of all these activities the weather in these places will be hot and humid.
