Kerala likely to receive heavy rains in the next few days

Kerala is also likely to get extremely heavy rains of 21 cm and above in one or two places on 28 May, the bulletn said

Thiruvananthapuram: With the South West monsoon set to hit Kerala in a few days, the met department today said the State was likely to receive very heavy rainfall of up to 21 cm in the next three days.

The Indian Meteorological Department here said that while heavy rainfall of 7-11 cm is expected in the next 24 hours in the State in some places, heavy to very heavy rainfall is expected in some places tomorrow and the day after.

Kerala is also likely to get extremely heavy rains of 21 cm and above in one or two places on 28 May, the bulletn said.

Heavy to very heavy rainfall was also likely to occur at one or two places in Lakshadweep till the morning of 30 May.

Fishermen have been warned against venturing into the sea due to strong winds and squally weather over Kerala-Karnataka coast and Lakshadweep area during the next four to five days.

The southwest monsoon is expected to hit Kerala on 29 May, three days ahead of its normal onset date, the India Meteorological Department had said.

US-based commercial forecaster AccuWeather said mid-season rainfall would be erratic as the “uneven monsoon” would cause droughts and floods after near to slightly above average rainfall across India in the early part of the season.

“We expect the southwest monsoon to become more streaky during July and August with active and inactive periods,” lead global meteorologist Jason Nicholls said in AccuWeather’s forecast, which has predicted heavy showers and possible floods in Odisha, West Bengal and parts of UP and Madhya Pradesh.

It said northwestern and southeastern India may face drought in some areas. “Spatially, areas of drier-than-average conditions will outweigh areas that have above-average rainfall in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh from the monsoon,” AccuWeather said.

Private forecaster Skymet has forecast uneven rainfall. Peninsular and majority of northeast India are at a higher risk of facing deficient rains this monsoon season, Skymet had said last month.
