THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The state is likely to receive heavy rain from Monday, said India Meteorological Department (IMD). Yellow alert, with a forecast of isolated heavy rain, has been issued across the state on Monday except in Thrissur, Wayanad, Kannur and Kasaragod districts.

Similarly, orange alert has been issued in six districts - Kollam, Pathnamthitta, Alappuzha, Kottayam, Ernakulam and Idukki - on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Orange alert signifies heavy to very heavy rain. 

IMD said the cyclonic circulation over East-central Arabian Sea is likely to persist during next few days. Under its influence, fairly widespread to isolated heavy rain is likely over Kerala during the next few days.

Further, a low pressure area to form over north Andaman Sea is likely to become more marked and move west-northwestwards towards south Odisha and north Andhra Pradesh coasts during the next few days.
IMD’s extended rain forecast bulletin also indicated an-above-normal rainfall over Kerala,  Mahe and Lakshadweep during the week.
