An Upper Air Circulation (UAC) over Lakshadweep persists, causing moderate to heavy rainfall along the coastal regions of Kerala and few parts of South TN. This circulation is expected to move away West and rainfall would reduce gradually in the coming days. Another Western Disturbance is expected to affect Northern states by next week.
There is not going to be any significant activity in the Bay of Bengal as the much expected North East Monsoon (NEM) failed to keep up the normal date of arrival. Unfavorable conditions are likely to surface in the bay for the next 4-5 days. But the wait is not for long. Numerical weather Models continue to show favorable moist Easterly winds making a comeback after Oct 25th followed by a Low Pressure Area (LPA) in the Bay around 27th Oct. To cut the long story short, the much awaited NEM may wash ashore between 26-29th October. Conditions are closely been monitored by weather experts for the onset signs.
