THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A trough of low pressure over the Arabian Sea near the Kerala-Karnataka area gave widespread thundershowers over the state. The Met Department, however, said that conditions were not favourable for rainfall in the coming days.
According to a Met release, thundershowers are likely till Saturday noon. Dry weather will prevail from Saturday. “This is because the trough is moving towards Lakshadweep. The state will not experience its effect since it is moving westwards. Lakshadweep will get rainfall in the coming days,” said K Santhosh, director, IMD.
Konni in Pathanamthitta district received 3 cm rainfall while Aryankavu in Kollam district got 2 cm. Kayamkulam, Mavelikkara, Nedumangad, Neyyattinkara and Thodupuzha recorded 1 cm rainfall. Minimum temperature was appreciably above normal here. Thundrershowers are expected in the district till Sunday morning.
