Weather: Pre-monsoon Showers Likely In Kerala; Dust Storms Give Relief From Heat Wave In MP

New Delhi: Kerala is expected to witness rainy weather accompanied by lightning, thunderstorms, and thundershowers over the next three to four days. Heavy rainfall is likely in certain areas, with an estimated range of 40-50 mm of rain in some parts.

According to Skymet Weather, the reason for these anticipated rains is the presence of the Peninsular Trough that extends across South India and oscillates from time to time. Moist winds are also blowing from the Arabian Sea, which can contribute to rainfall in the region.

The possibility of some rainfall in interior regions of Tamil Nadu cannot be ruled out due to these conditions.

No heat wave condition in any part of country

At present, there is no region in the country which is observing heat wave conditions. Heat wave is declared when the maximum temperature is either at 45° or more or the maximums are 5° above the normal levels. In the last 24 hours, no such condition has been seen with Datia in Madhya Pradesh seeing the highest maximum at 44.8 degrees.

According to Skymet Weather, heat wave has been vacating the western parts and Madhya Pradesh due to the dust storm activity. Rajasthan will also see a reduction in maximums while other parts of Northwest India as it is has not seen heat wave in the past many days. Temperatures in Gujarat have already dropped.

Isolated heat waves may occur in Odisha, AP

However, as far as sky high temperatures are concerned, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh including Sambalpur, Titlagarh, Bolangir, Angul, Jharsuguda, Rentachnitala, Nandigama, Bapatla, Narsapur etc. may be the vulnerable pockets and isolated heat wave conditions may occur.
