Except for the highlands, where temperatures ranges between a moderate 15OC and 30oC, much of Kerala is hot and humid. Temperatures during summer months ( March – May ) can rise up to 37oC in the interiors. The coast, cooled by sea breezes, gets as hot as 32oC, but this, coupled with a humidity factor which can rise up to 85 to 95 percent, can turn the land into an open sauna. The unseasonal thunderstorms that occasionally erupt in the summer months offer a little relief, making the humidity level soar even further.
In early June, just when it seems that the earth will bubble forth in the summer heat, the monsoon breaks in a tumult of thunder and lightning. Cataracts of rain hammer down, sometimes for days on end, without respite. The seas churn jugglers tossing gigantic waves into the air. Gusts of wind dance around and make giant coconut palms tremble at their very touch. Umbrellas threaten to turn into hot air balloons and carry up into the grey clouds the hapless humans hanging on to them for dear life! And then the rain stops. The land washed, nourished and refreshed. Streams and rivers gush forth in rapture, burbling their joy to the world. Lakes and ponds swell to their brims. Frogs croak delightedly and fireflies flit about. Kerala gets most of its rain from the south west monsoon ( June – mid October ), but also enjoys the benediction of the north east monsoon ( Late October – December ). The southern parts of the state enjoy most of the rains that come with the north east monsoon, while the northern parts get heavy rainfall during the south west monsoon and relatively lighter rainfall during the north east monsoon.
