Kerala to experience heavy rainfall for next few days: IMDtext_fields
Thiruvananthapuram: The current meteorological conditions across the southern half of the country have led the India Meteorological Department (IMD) to expect isolated significant rainfall in Kerala for the next few days.
The south of Tamil Nadu and its surrounding territories were under a cyclonic circulation, according to an IMD forecast, which was expected to move west-northwestward over the next three days, towards the southeast and the adjacent east-central Arabian Sea.
Under the influence of the strong lower level easterly winds from the Bay of Bengal due to the above systems, widespread light to moderate rainfall was very likely over south peninsular India during the next seven days, it said.
It also said that isolated heavy rainfall was very likely over Kerala between November 5 and 8 and isolated very heavy rainfall was also very likely in the southern state on Sunday.
On Saturday, the IMD issued orange alerts for November 5 in the Pathanamthitta, Idukki and Malappuram districts of the state.
An orange alert means very heavy rainfall between 6 cm and 20 cm.
