The southwest monsoon is expected to hit Kerala in the next 24 hours, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Wednesday.

In a statement, the weather body said, "The conditions continue to become favourable for Monsoon onset over Kerala during next 24 hours and advance of monsoon over some parts of Northeastern States during the same period."

Earlier on Wednesday, heavy waterlogging and continuous rains battered normal life in the state capital, Thiruvananthapuram. The inundation caused trouble for people who had to go to the railway station and bus stands located in the heart of the city.

The IMD has issued a 'yellow' alert for

Thiruvananthapuram, Idukki, and Thrissur districts, while Kollam, Pathanamthitta, Alappuzha, Kottayam and Ernakulam were placed under 'orange' alert, anticipating "very heavy rains".

Moderate rainfall is expected at one or two places in Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Pathanamthitta, Alappuzha, Kottayam, Idukki, Ernakulam and Thrissur districts, and light rainfall is likely to occur at one or two places in Palakkad, Malappuram, and Kozhikode districts in the coming hours, the weather department said.

A red alert indicates heavy to extremely heavy rain of over 20 cm in 24 hours, while an orange alert means very heavy rain of 11 cm to 20 cm, and a yellow alert means heavy rainfall between 6 cm and 11 cm.
