While south Kerala has been receiving widespread rains since early on Monday, only a few places have received rains in the northern parts. However, it is likely to improve by Tuesday, IMD Thiruvananthapuram director S Sudevan said.

"Present meteorological analysis indicates that conditions are favourable for the onset of southwest monsoon in Kerala in the next 24 hours," the director said.

Thiruvananthapuram city, Minicoy and Peermade (Idukki) each received one cm of rain.

Rain and thundershowers are most likely to occur at most places in Kerala in the next five days.
