South-west monsoon likely to hit Kerala today: IMD

New Delhi: Conditions ‘favourable’ for the onset of the South-West monsoon in Kerala by today, says the Meteorological Department.

The southwest monsoon is “most likely” to hit the Kerala coast and northeast India simultaneously on Tuesday, the onset date forecast by the Met earlier in the month.

Monsoon’s early push into the northeast, where the rain system normally arrives a few days after its onset over Kerala, is being aided by cyclone Mora, currently moving north from the Bay of Bengal.
