Monsoon to hit Kerala around June 1

New Delhi: The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said that the Southwest monsoon could hit Kerala soon around June 1.

"The monsoon advance will be favourable during May 31 – June 4, due to the likely formation of a low pressure area over the southeast and east-central Arabian Sea. These conditions are very likely to favour monsoon onset over Kerala from June 1", said the IMD statement.

The normal date for monsoon onset over Kerala is June 1. Desk: Asianet Online
