"We will be clear in a day or two with a statement regarding how long the monsoon will knock in Kerala. Apart from this, a temperature rise of 1 to 2 degrees is being seen in the areas of northern India, although along with this it is also cloudy which gives relief from the heat. There is no heat wave in North India for the next 10 days," he added.
