The state of Kerala is all set to receive some heavy rains for the next coming few days. In fact if we talked about the month of October Kerala has constantly been receiving rainfall and there have been only a couple of days where rainfall has been out of sight. Otherwise god's own country has been seeing a good spell of rain throughout October.
In fact, in the last 24 hours, the state has seen some three digit rains as well including 216 mm in Kozhikode, 166 mm in Kannur, 136 mm in Punalur, 77 mm in Palakkad, 59 mm in Thrissur and 51 mm in Kochi.
Now as far as the forecast is concerned, state of Kerala is expected to record more showers. These rainfall activities will be attributed to a combination of weather systems.
A cyclonic circulation is over is EastCentral Arabian Sea. This is likely to persist and shift southward, off North Kerala and South Coastal Karnataka, for the next 4-5 days. Also, there is a cyclonic circulation on the other side of the coastline, over Bay of Bengal, which is expected to become a low pressure area. A shear line is joining these two features and is running across the state of Kerala.
The northern parts of Kerala inclusive of Wayanad, Kannur, Kozhikode, even up to Kochi will see more rains as compared to the places in the southern parts of Kerala. However, the entire state as a whole will be seeing rains of varied intensity in the coming days.
