Thiruvananthapuram: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Monday said that conditions were becoming favourable for the onset of southwest monsoon over Kerala around June 5.

The weather department said during the last 24 hours, the wind has become stronger and there has been an increase in rainfall over the Lakshadweep area and southern parts of peninsular India.

“Persistence of convection indicates that conditions are becoming favourable for the onset of southwest monsoon over Kerala around June 5,” the IMD said in its evening update.

On Monday, most parts of Kerala received rain and the temperature also came down, compared to previous days.

The IMD had earlier forecast that the southwest monsoon was likely to set over Kerala on May 30, with a model error of plus or minus four days

IMD director K Santhosh said the announcement about monsoon arrival would be made from New Delhi. “To declare that the monsoon has arrived in Kerala, the data recorded at the 14 weather stations located at Lakshadweep, Kerala and in Mangalore are being closely monitored,” said Santhosh
