Monsoon in India

The monsoon showers have hit the southern coast of India.

TOI reports that the much-awaited south-west Monsoon, crucial for kharif crop in the country, on Monday (28th May) hit Kerala, a day ahead of the Meteorological Department's prediction.

Monsoon rains were reported from Kannur, Palakkad in Kerala and Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu, the weather office said. Conditions are favourable for further advance of southwest monsoon over some parts of coastal and south interior Karnataka and some more parts of Tamil Nadu during the next two days, it said.

The onset of monsoon occurred due to the strengthening and deepening of westerly/south-westerly flow over Arabian Sea and south peninsula, development of an offshore trough extending from Karnataka to Kerala coast, persistent cloudiness over the Arabian Sea and adjoining peninsular India, the weather office said.
