Thunderstorms accompanied with squall or gusty winds are forecasted in these places.
Dr K. Sathi Devi, scientist, Meteorological Department said, "The onset of Monsoon has arrived three days in advance in Kerala and Lakshadweep, and has also covered some parts of Tamil Nadu. It has advanced further to the central part of the Arabian sea."
