Off-shore trough keeps monsoon active in south

Off-shore trough keeps monsoon active in south

The monsoon has remained ‘active to vigorous’ over the extreme southern parts of India, thanks to the off-shore trough running the length of the western coast.

Skymet Weather said the trough is likely to persist and would get more marked. Under its influence, widespread heavy rains are expected over Kerala and coastal Karnataka. These rains would provide the springboard for the monsoon to advance further into the remaining parts of south Arabian Sea, Lakshadweep region and Kerala, some parts of central Arabian Sea, Coastal and South Interior Karnataka and Rayalaseema and some more parts of Tamil Nadu.

Ever since the onset of monsoon on May 30, Kerala and the adjoining areas of Karnataka have been recording good rain and thundershowers. Most parts of Kerala, coastal Karnataka and Lakshadweep islands have already experienced heavy rains.

Skymet Weather said the progress of Southwest Monsoon is quite satisfactory and as per expectation. It is likely to be active along the West Coast initially.
