Mumbai (Commodities Control) - Citing predictions of the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Kerala State Disaster Management Authority said that those places falling under the Orange alert could record rainfall of 11.5-20.4 cm during 24 hours while those under the Yellow alert category, between 6.5 cm and 11.5 cm during the same period.

Last week has already witnessed heavy to very rain along some of the fragile reaches along the Ghats in the hilly districts where the slopes may have already got soaked. A couple of minor landslips have previously been reported in North Kerala last week.

The monsoon will enter the active phase over the Central and Peninsular India from Tuesday and stay as such into the rest of the week. Widespread rainfall with scattered heavy to very heavy rainfall with isolated extremely heavy falls is likely over Konkan and Goa from Monday to Wednesday.

Over Mumbai, the rainfall would be heavy to very heavy on Monday, and with isolated extremely heavy falls on Tuesday and Wednesday as well as over Madhya Maharashtra including the Ghat areas. Heavy to very heavy falls also very likely over Coastal Karnataka and Karnataka from Monday to Wednesday.

Widespread rainfall with heavy to very heavy rainfall at isolated places with isolated extremely heavy falls have been predicted over the coastal districts of Gujarat Wednesday and Thursday. The speed with which the low would have travelled would have left enough latent heat and momentum on its trail for another system to form over the Bay there the same day.

According to the projections of the IMD, it could likely mark a different course from here. It may dig a little southward to the North Andhra Pradesh coast from where it would cross land and orient itself towards West-North-West (unlike a straight line to the West in the previous case) and head to South Uttar Pradesh before being pushed by the westerlies to the Himalayan foothills.
