Monsoon 2016: Expected onset dates in different parts of India

May 12, 2016 10:00 AM |

At the time when India is battling severe drought conditions, Southwest Monsoon is most awaited. A major part of the country is still dependent on agriculture and a large chunk of which depends on the Monsoon rains for irrigation. This year, we expect Monsoon to reach India a little before its official onset date of June 1.

As per Skymet Weather, Southwest Monsoon will arrive over Andaman and Nicobar Islands between May 18 and May 20. It is likely to reach Kerala between May 28 and May 30. Thereafter, it will cover other parts of the country.  Present weather conditions are indicating a promising beginning of Monsoon 2016 which is likely to usher in with a bang.

Following are the expected onset dates of Southwest Monsoon 2016 across India.
