According to the Central Meteorological Department, there is a possibility of heavy rainfall until November 10 in many parts of Kerala. The beginning of the monsoon season in the northeast is commonly known as the winter monsoon, and this has affected the climate. The result is that the southern states of India are witnessing heavy rainfall. 

The northeast monsoon generally takes place between October and December. It is the counterpart of the southwest monsoon and also somehow affects the Indian southern peninsula.  (As per LiveMint)
