The India Meteorological Department (IMD) reported on Wednesday that conditions are favorable for the southwest monsoon to arrive in Kerala on June 3 despite missing its normal onset date.
The westerly winds have intensified at the lower levels over the South Arabian Sea, according to the report, and the spatial rainfall distribution has risen across Kerala.
Cloudiness is increasing over the Kerala coast and the adjacent southeast Arabian Sea, according to satellite imagery.
“During the following 24 hours, the circumstances are anticipated to favor an increase in rainfall activity across Kerala. As a result, the monsoon season in Kerala is expected to begin around the same time “according to the IMD.
The arrival of the monsoon in Kerala is usually on June 1st. With a plus or minus four-day error range, the IMD forecasted that the monsoon would strike Kerala on May 31. However, on May 30, it stated that the circumstances were not favorable for the monsoon to arrive in Kerala the next day.
This year’s monsoon is likely to be normal, according to the IMD.
