God’s own country- Kerala is the only state in our country which has experienced rain in super abundance. Kerala has received 24% surplus rainfall. It has been raining on and off this entire Monsoon season. The tourism industry got affected and came to a standstill because of widespread flooding due to very heavy rains during the month of August.
On the other hand, in Karnataka, rainfall intensity varies in its three different meteorological divisions. Talking about North Interior Karnataka, there’s a deficit in rainfall by 31% as on September 24, 2018. It has been observed that this division of Karnataka is one of the most rain deficit areas in the country. However, Coastal Karnataka and South Interior Karnataka have seen normal rains.
The weathermen at Skymet Weather have forecast that a Cyclonic Circulation is persisting over east central Andaman Sea of Karnataka Coast. Therefore, rainfall over scattered areas is expected to continue over Karnataka for next two to three days. Along with this, a Cyclonic Circulation lies over South Interior Karnataka which will altogether lead to an increase in the amount of rain.
Coming back to Kerala, no significant weather activity seems to be affecting the state. But, a trough is running along the interior parts of Tamil Nadu, which, will result in rainfall over one or two places in the state in coming 24 to 48 hours. Kerala received around 41% surplus rainfall in mid-August. Since then, Kerala has been receiving less rains and the percentage has come down to 24%. Normal rains are expected because no such vigorous rains will be experienced over there. Thereby, the tourism industry of Kerala will be back on its feet very soon.
