Kerala 1

Kerala is the only state in the country which has been experiencing rain and thundershower activities since the beginning of the pre-Monsoon season. Though the intensity of these showers varied time to time but the state has not experienced any dry spell until now.


Meanwhile, Karnataka, particularly South Interior Karnataka received on and off pre-Monsoon rains until now.

As per Skymet Weather, the last 24 to 48 hours saw the intensity of rains increase significantly over Kerala and Karnataka.

In fact, few very heavy spells have also occurred over these two states. Meanwhile, some districts of north Karnataka also observed light rain and thundershower activities.

In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday, Alappuzha in Kerala recorded rain to the tune of 23.2 mm, Kozhikode 12.9 mm, Punalur 9.6 mm, Kochi 4.2 mm, Kannur 2.8 mm and Thiruvananthapuram 1.4 mm of rains. In the same time frame, Mangaluru in Karnataka recorded 38.2 mm of rains, Madikeri 37.6 mm, Belagavi 20.8 mm, Honavar 16.4 mm and Agumbe 9.2 mm of rains.

These rains can be attributed to the wind discontinuity which is a semi-permanent feature persisting from North Interior Karnataka to South Tamil Nadu across South Interior Karnataka. Moreover, the cyclonic circulation which is persisting over North Coastal Kerala is also contributing to these pre-Monsoon activities.

As per weathermen, good rains are expected to continue over these two states for another 24 hours. Capital cities of Karnataka and Kerala i.e., Bengaluru and Thiruvananthapuram are also expected to witness rain and thunderstorm activity during the next 24 hours. Thereafter, there are chances for the intensity to decrease but it will continue.

The temperatures of these states do not get influenced by pre-Monsoon activities. However, a marginal drop is experienced in the temperatures for a short duration while it rains. Thereafter, the temperatures get back to normal. Thus, warm and humid weather will continue to persist.
