Thiruvananthapuram: Meteorological conditions are becoming favourable for the onset of monsoon over Kerala during the next 48 hours, India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Wednesday. As the cyclone 'Biparjoy' is likely to intensify, Kerala might also receive thundershowers for the next five days.

Further, conditions are also favourable for further advance of monsoon into some more parts of the South Arabian Sea, the entire Lakshadweep, some more parts of Southwest, Central and Northeast Bay of Bengal and some parts of Northeastern states during the next 48 hours, the IMD stated.

Southwest monsoon normally sets in over Kerala on June 1 with a standard deviation of about seven days. Earlier in May, IMD had predicted the arrival of the monsoon on June 4.

Meanwhile, severe cyclonic storm 'Biparjoy' over east central and adjoining southeast Arabian Sea around Goa is likely to intensify into a 'very severe cyclonic storm' in the next 12 hours.

"It is very likely to intensify into a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm during the next 12 hours. It would move nearly northwards during the next 24 hours and then north-northwestwards during subsequent three days," IMD said.

Fishermen are advised not to venture into such cyclone-hit areas in the Arabian Sea and those who are out at sea are advised to return to the coast.
