The Southwest Monsoon has hit the Kerala coast on Thursday night. The Thiruvananthapuram and Kollam areas of the state have reportedly been receiving the rains since today morning. But, according to the met department the Monsoon is delayed by almost four days as it should had hit Kerala by 30 May.
However, the heavy rains have started pouring now from today, and the authorities in Kochi, including the coastal police, have started taking precautionary measures. Karnataka, coastal Andhra Pradesh, Rayalaseema, and Tamil Nadu are also experiencing thunderstorms since Thursday night.

The monsoon is expected to hit North India by the end of June.

The Met Department has predicted a deficient monsoon this year. The weather forecaster has lowered its forecast of the South-West monsoon from 93 per cent to 88 per cent.
