Earlier this week, the IMD had said that the monsoon is expected to advance over the South Andaman Sea, Nicobar Islands, and parts of the Bay of Bengal around May 19. Which is about two days ahead of the normal date for this region. Satellite images of the last few days have shown that groups of clouds are reorganizing themselves over the equator.

When did the monsoon arrive in May?

This cloud band is called the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), which is important for bringing rain to the country. During the southwest monsoon season, the ITCZ ​​shifts north or south along India and influences the rain-bringing winds over the country. In the last decade, the actual onset of monsoon in Kerala was in May 2017, 2018 and 2022.
