System is expected to intensify,as the SST is conducive at 31c.
As expected,it has moved North-West,and is likely to continue in that direction for the next 24Hrs.Subsequently,it should encounter the W.D, and as mentioned yesterday in my write up, recurve towards the India/Pakistan border by the 3rd. of June.
Effectively, I maintain that the rainfall will decrease in Kerala and Karnataka coast from 1st. June.
But, Goa and Maharashtra coasts will get light to moderate rains from Wednessday till around the 6th. whilst the interior regions of Maharashtra, Karnataka and entire T.N will remain practically dry till the 8th./9th. of June at least.
