The India Meteorological Department (IMD) expects monsoon to hit Kerala in the next 48 hours as "gradually it is showing strengthening."

"We are expecting that by June 8 it (monsoon) should reach over Kerala. Most of the conditions are satisfying except that the depth of monsoon is still at the lower level, it has to go up to around 4 kilometres. So, that is the only delay," said DS Pai - scientist and head of Climate Service Division, IMD.

"By this weekend itself, you will see in many parts of the southern peninsula and even Maharashtra some thunderstorm activity, particularly in the coastal areas... so, there will be more moisture coming into the Northern parts and we should expect more rainfall activity," Pai added.
