    Monsoon arrival in Kerala likely to be delayed further

    Monsoon normally arrives in Kerala around June 1 before advancing northwards and covering the entire country by July 15

    The monsoon arrival in Kerala is expected to be delayed further, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has indicated without specifying a fresh date for its likely onset. Conditions such as westerly wind patterns were making the onset conditions conducive. But the formation of a cyclonic circulation that intensified into a depression on Tuesday over the Southeast Arabian Sea has led to a reduction of cloud cover—another key condition for the onset—off the Kerala coast.

    “Latest observations indicate that a depression has formed over [the] southeast Arabian Sea and about 920 km west-southwest of Goa, 1120 km south-southwest of Mumbai, 1160 km south of Porbandar... It is likely to move nearly northwards and intensify into a cyclonic storm during next 24 hours over [the] Eastcentral Arabian Sea & adjoining southeast Arabian Sea,” IMD said on Tuesday.
