With 199 mm, Kannur in Kerala records highest Monsoon rains in last 10 years in July

July 20, 2019 6:28 AM |

Showers in KeralaHeavy to extremely heavy Monsoon rains have been lashing most parts of Kerala from the last 48 hours. Most of areas, particularly in northern parts of the state, have recorded three-digit rainfall during this span.

In span of 21 hours from 8:30 am on Friday, Kannur has recorded 199 mm of rain. With this, the city has broken the record of highest rainfall recorded in span of 24 hours in the last 10 years, which earlier stood at 180.2 mm observed on July 18, 2009.

According to weathermen, although rains have reduced but North Kerala would continue to be on risk of some more moderate to heavy rains today. At present also, intense clouding could be seen over the region. We can expect few spells of moderate rain and shower to continue at some places over Ernakulam, Idukki, Kannur, Kozhikode, Malappuram, Palakkad, Thrissur and Wayanad during next 2-3 hours.

However, rains would now reduce significantly over the southern parts of the state. But with the presence of Monsoon surge, one or two isolated intense spell cannot be ruled out.

Kerala has been battling with large rainfall deficiency so far in the season. As on July 18, the rainfall deficiency for the state had mounted to 46%. Thanks to the ongoing spell, which has led to some good improvement in the rainfall figures, which as on July 19 stood at 42%. The rainfall deficit is likely to reduce further during the next 24 hours.
