Rainfall becomes an important aspect in agricultural countries like India. Rainfall prognostication has become one of the most accurately and theoretically demanding issues in the world. The aim of this study is to prognosticate Kerala Monsoon rainfall with an optimized set of parameters like Sea Level Pressure (SLP), Sea Surface Temperature (SST), humidity, zonal (u), and meridional (v) winds. With the aforesaid parameters given as input to a Fuzzy Rule-based classification (FRBCS), the FRBCS classification algorithm is used for training a period of 35 years (1962-1997) summer monsoon rainfall data and validated and tested with another 15 years of (1998-2012) data using the same.
