IMD had predicted that Kerala, Mahe, Lakshadweep and Tamil Nadu would witness heavy downpours this week. Earlier, IMD had announced that the Southwest monsoon is likely to knock on Kerala's door on May 27, against the normal onset date of June 1.
"This year, the onset of southwest monsoon over Kerala is likely to be earlier than the normal date of onset. The monsoon onset over Kerala is likely to be on May 27 with a model error of plus or minus four days," the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.
According to the weather company, the overall rainfall in the South would be less than normal. “In June, low-level easterly winds are likely to cover over southern region, keeping the southwest winds suppressed, leading to below average rainfall over southern India for the first month of the monsoon season,” says The Weather Company.
