A yellow alert has been declared in 11 districts of the state excluding the southern districts of Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, and Pathanamthitta. India Meteorological Department (IMD) has declared that there will be isolated heavy rains for the upcoming three days in the areas till Thursday expected to receive 64.5 mm to 115.5 mm rainfall within 24 hours. This could be due to the prevalence of strong winds and the presence of off-shore troughs along the coastline.
The onset of monsoon has been delayed in the state of Kerala with some areas receiving as low as 260.8 mm of rainfall as opposed to 577.8 mm in 2021. According to IMD data, around nine states and one UT of southern India fall under the category of rainfall deficit areas this year with very less rainfall recorded in Kollam, Idukki, Wayanad, and Palakkad.
On the other hand, heavy rains are expected in New Delhi from Wednesday with favorable monsoon-like conditions over northwest India. According to IMD reports, the monsoon is likely to soon take over some parts of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, and Jammu & Kashmir in the next 3-4 days.
