photoSummer monsoon rain is likely to gain foothold in Kerala in the next few days. Heavy rain in excess of 70mm is expected at isolated places on the coastline. Thereafter, it will increase and cover the entire state. Moist westerly winds will be speeding up to 45-55kmph in the southern state. Rain will also continue over east India in Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Sikkim.
According to Mahesh Palawat, head of forecasting at Skymet weather, “Light to moderate rain at many places will continue during the next 48 hours. One or two places in Kerala could get heavy rain during the next two days.”
Coastal Karnataka will also get rain in the next 2-3 days. Mangalore will also receive moderate showers. The city has already received more than 20mm rain in the last 24 hours. Rain will also increase in Konkan and Goa and over south Maharashtra from Sunday onwards.
Eastern part of India has cooled down due to rain in the last 24 hours. Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Sikkim will receive showers at many places in the next 24 hours. However, it will decrease in these areas thereafter. These areas are witnessing rain due to a depression over West Bengal near Bankura district.
However, the depression over West Bengal will move to the north-eastern states after the next 24 hours. This weather system will increase rainfall in the north-eastern states and many places will receive rain.
Some showers are also expected at one or two places in eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in the next 24 hours.
Hot and dry weather will continue in northwest and central India as no rain is expected. However, temperatures are expected to maintain in lower 40s in the coming two days as south-westerly winds are approaching the region.
