Only green alerts would be in place on Tuesday based on the latest weather updates of the Indian Meteorological Department.

Yellow alert

At the same time, a yellow alert would be in place for three days from October 20. Officials said the fishermen would be disallowed from venturing into the sea on the specified days. Authorities said gusty wind could pose a threat along the Kerala and Lakshadweep coasts.
