Will get relief from heat soon: Monsoon may knock in Kerala by May 27
New Delhi : The Southwest Monsoon, considered the lifeline of India’s agro-based economy, may bring the first shower of rain in Kerala ahead of time, by May 27. The Meteorological Department gave this information on Friday. The arrival of monsoon in Kerala usually occurs on June 1. The India Meteorological Department said, ‘This year the arrival of South East Monsoon in Kerala may be premature. Monsoon can knock in Kerala on 27th May, and it is estimated to be four days ahead in this date.
The announcement of the premature arrival of Southwest Monsoon comes at a time when regions of Northwest India are facing extreme temperatures. The Meteorological Department said that the arrival of monsoon over Andaman and Nicobar Islands is expected by May 15. Monsoon will first knock in the South Andaman Sea and the monsoon winds will then move north-westwards in the Bay of Bengal. It is believed that the south-west monsoon may arrive in the Andaman Sea around May 22.
The IMD said, ‘With the intensification of Mediterranean winds, the southwest monsoon is very likely to rain over south Andaman Sea, Nicobar Islands and parts of southeast Bay of Bengal around May 15.’ However, the IMD said that past data shows that the date of onset of monsoon in Andaman Sea has nothing to do with the onset of monsoon in Kerala.
The Southwest Monsoon has a massive impact on India’s economy with almost everything dictated by agriculture, economy, trade, travel, amount of rainfall and time. Former Secretary of Earth Sciences, M Rajeevan Nair said, “Generally the southwest monsoon reaches the Andaman and Nicobar Islands by May 19-20. This time it is arriving at least a week earlier.
Presently the IMD uses the criteria adopted in 2016 to announce the onset of monsoon over Kerala, which is the daily rainfall of 14 stations over Kerala and the neighboring region, as well as outgoing longwave radiation over the wind region and southeast Arabian Sea. based on. This entails the establishment of large-scale monsoon flows and the expansion of westerly winds up to certain parameters, as well as a sharp increase in rainfall over Kerala.
