Monsoon Arrives Early in Kerala, Heavy Rainfall Expected

The monsoon has arrived in Kerala a day earlier than expected and is projected to last until September, bringing heavy rainfall in the coming days. It is predicted that the state will receive an additional 6 percent rainfall this year. The monsoon’s arrival was confirmed by yesterday afternoon, with Ayyankunnu in Kannur receiving 80 mm of rain in just two hours. Widespread rainfall was also observed in Wayanad and Kozhikode districts. However, the southern districts, except Alappuzha, experienced less rainfall, and the hilly areas saw milder precipitation.

A cyclonic circulation has formed in the Southeast Arabian Sea, contributing to the state’s widespread rains over the next five days. The intensity of the rain is expected to be higher in the central and northern districts. Fishermen have been advised to avoid fishing due to the potential for high tides. A yellow alert has been issued for all districts except Thiruvananthapuram and Kollam for today and tomorrow. The summer season, which recently concluded, brought 40 percent more rainfall than usual, with notable excesses in districts like Alappuzha, Ernakulam, Kottayam, and Thiruvananthapuram.
