Monsoon Forecast for Aug 17, 2018: Monsoon Rains In MP, Maharashtra, Coastal Karnataka, Kerala

August 16, 2018 7:31 PM |


The axis of Monsoon trough has shifted south and is presently passing through Bikaner, Ajmer, Guna, Jabalpur, Pendra and then towards East Central Bay of Bengal.

As a result, Monsoon remained vigorous over Kerala, Coastal Karnataka, North Chhattisgarh and Odisha during the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, active Monsoon conditions were witnessed over Vidarbha, Marathwada, Madhya Pradesh, Central Uttar Pradesh and Gangetic West Bengal.

Major rainfall contribution came from Valparai in Tamil Nadu that recorded 298 mm of rain, followed by Cherrapunji 187 mm and Palakkad 168 mm.

As on August 15, the countrywide cumulative rainfall deficiency continued to be stagnant at -9%. At present, South India is the only pocket that is rain surplus by 6%, whereas East & Northeast India is the highest rain deficient pocket at -27%, followed by Central India at -7% and Northwest India at -4%

During the next 24 hours, we do not expect any relief from ongoing Kerala floods as vigorous Monsoon conditions will prevail over the state along with Coastal Karnataka, Vidarbha and Marathwada. These areas could see moderate to heavy showers along with isolated very heavy rains.

Monsoon would also remain active in parts of Madhya Pradesh, Konkan & Goa, Madhya Maharashtra and Gujarat that might see light to moderate rainfall with few heavy spells. Mumbai would also see some moderate rains with few heavy spells.
Meanwhile, normal Monsoon rains are likely over parts of Telangana, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Uttarakhand, while Monsoon will remain subdued over the rest of the country.
