Thiruvananthapuram: The India Meteorological Department has forecast heavy rains in Kerala till December 15. The state has been receiving heavy downpour under the influence of cyclone Mandous which crossed Tamil Nadu on Saturday. As per the IMD alert issued on Monday morning, all districts in the state are expected to receive moderate rainfall.

Isolated heavy rains ranging from 64.5 mm to 115.5 mm are expected in Alappuzha, Kottayam, Ernakulam, Idukki, Thrissur, Palakkad and Malappuram districts on Monday. IMD has sounded yellow alert in these seven districts.

A yellow alert is sounded in Pathanamthitta, Alappuzha, Ernakulam and Idukki districts on Tuesday.

The low-pressure area (remnant of the cyclonic storm "Mandous"pronounced as "Man-Dous") over north interior Tamil Nadu and adjoining South Interior Karnataka and north Kerala has become less marked, said India Meteorological Department on Sunday.

However, the associated upper-air cyclonic circulation persists over the same region and extends upto the middle tropospheric level. It is likely to emerge into the southeast and adjoining east central Arabian Sea off north Kerala and Karnataka coasts by December 12, added the IMD.

Under its influence, a low-pressure area will likely form over the same region around December 13, 2022. It would move west-northwestwards away from the Indian coast gradually after that, as per the IMD.

Under its influence, squally wind speed reaching 35-45 kmph gusting to 55 kmph is likely to prevail over southeast & adjoining east central Arabian Sea, along and off Kerala and Karnataka coasts during December 11-12 and over east central and adjoining southeast Arabian Sea during December 13-15. Fishermen are advised not to venture into the sea along and off Karnataka and Kerala coasts.
