It's raining in Kerala but it's not monsoon yet

By Ians

Thiruvananthapuram, June 7: Kerala received good rains on Tuesday, but the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said one has to wait some more time for the onset of the southwest monsoon.

The IMD said that in view of the strengthening of cross equatorial flow and deepening of westerlies over south Arabian Sea and development of feeble off-shore trough along the Karnataka-Kerala coast, the monsoon was likely to set in by June 9 in Kerala.
