A trough of low that currently lies over Comorin-Maldives region and adjoining equatorial Indian Ocean. Thus, many districts of Kerala received light to moderate rainfall activity during the last 24 hours. In fact, Alappuzha district recorded the most amount of rains, wherein Kayamkulam recorded moderate rain to the tune of 36 mm.
In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Mavelikkara recorded 27.2 mm of rain, followed by Chengannur 17 mm, Kozha 13.4 mm, Piravom 12.2 mm, Vaikom 8.4 mm, Haripad 4.8 mm and Kurudamannil 3.2 mm. Meanwhile, trace of rain was observed over Palakkad and Trivandrum city.
Now due to the persistence of the above-mentioned weather system, during the next 24 hours, we expect scattered light to moderate rains to continue over few districts of Kerala such as Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Alappuzha, Kottayam and Ernakulam.
After 24 hours, the intensity of these rains will start decreasing gradually, and only isolated light rains will continue over the state of Kerala.
Moreover, currently, Kerala is the only state in South Peninsula which is still normal in terms of rain as it is rain deficient by 6%. All other states are deficient or largely deficient with and exception Andaman and Nicobar Islands which is excessively rain surplus.
