What is Break Monsoon?

It is then after Monsoon arrives that the break Monsoon conditions do take over. Rains cease over most parts of the country during this time. Break Monsoon conditions occur when the Monsoon Trough shifts to the foothills of the Himalayas.

During the Break Monsoon conditions, rains are confined to the Northeastern parts of the country and the foothills along with some parts of the West Coast. However, the whole stretch of the foothills does not receive rains at once. For the West Coast, the favourable pocket remains Coastal Karnataka and adjoining Goa.

Generally, Break Monsoon conditions are seen more in August and even if such conditions are seen in July, it is basically during the second half of the month and it never extends beyond July 20.

This year, it is too early for the Break Monsoon conditions, even earlier than the establishment of the Monsoon Trough.

The foothills and Northeast India have already started to see heavy rains along with rainfall in the Western Ghats in pockets.

The Trough keeps oscillating a little during the Break Monsoon conditions. Thus, the foothills of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh, Northeast India keep seeing rains. Broadly, Northeast continues to witness heavy spells along with Nepal on a regular basis.
