The state of Kerala is witnessing moderate to heavy rainfall activity since the last many days in association with the low-pressure area over Southwest Arabian Sea. In wake of this, the entire state of Kerala has been on alert, with state authorities and disaster authority ready for action.

Now the low-pressure area over Southeast Arabian Sea is likely to move further west/northwestwards and intensify into a well-marked low-pressure area. This may further move away from Kerala Coast as well.

Due to this weather system, Kerala has already witnessed widespread rainfall activity over the area with moderate to isolated heavy showers.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Friday, Vellanikkara in Thrissur recorded 52.2 mm of rain followed by Mananthavady (Wayanad) 38.0 mm, Piravom (Ernakulam) 28.7 mm, Irikkur (Kannur) 25.0 mm, Enamackel (Thrissur) 24.8 mm, Aryankavu (Kollam) 22.0 mm, Hosdurg (Kasaragod) 21.3 mm, Vadakara (Kozhikode) 19.1 mm, Ambalavayal (Wayanad) 18.2 mm and Nilambur (Malappuram) 17.0 mm.

Now rainfall activity is expected to continue over Kerala. However, rain intensity will mostly be moderate, but isolated heavy spells cannot be ruled out.

Cloudy sky and comfortable day conditions along with moderate breeze will prevail over Kerala. In fact, extremely heavy rains will stay far away from Kerala.
