Rain in Kerala to continue, to reduce after 36 hours

October 8, 2018 1:17 PM |

Inside - Kerala

The state of Kerala received excess rainfall activity during the first week of October. As of October 7, Kerala is largely rain surplus by 51%. In fact, during the Southwest Monsoon also, Kerala ended with excess rains.

The recent heavy to moderate showers over Kerala occurred in association with a weather system, which originated in Southeast Arabian Sea and gradually intensified into Cyclone Luban.

Now, this cyclone has moved away in a northwest direction, therefore, the intensity of rains has also decreased over Kerala. Thus, during the last 24 hours, Kerala received moderate rains with isolated heavy showers.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Chengannur (Alappuzha) recorded 38 mm of rain, followed by Perumbavur (Ernakulam) 31 mm, Ambalavayal (Wayanad) 29.6 mm, Mananthavady (Wayanad) 27 mm, Kozhikode 26.6 mm, Piravom (Ernakulam) 25.6 mm and Negumangad (Thiruvananthapuram) 20.8 mm.

Further, we expect rain intensity to reduce by some extent, however, moderate rains with one or two heavy spells will continue over the state for another 24 to 36 hours.

Thereafter, we expect rains to reduce significantly. However, as the Northeast Monsoon is also around the corner, on and off rains will continue over Kerala. But, heavy to very heavy rains are not expected after today.
