Monsoon 2019

Southwest Monsoon has had a slow start with Kerala seeing the arrival a whopping seven days late. Thereafter also, there had been delayed Monsoon arrivals over several parts with Mumbai still waiting for the onset.

However, Monsoon did get covered good in the last two days and jumped from having arrived over 20 percent of the area on June 19, covering 50 percent on June 23, and today Monsoon has covered more areas of Maharashtra, entering parts of Madhya Pradesh as well as Uttarakhand.

In fact, Monsoon has entirely covered 17 states, partially covered Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and made an entry into Madhya Pradesh and Uttarakhand just today.

In the next 48 hours, Southwest Monsoon will now arrive over entire Konkan including the city of Mumbai and Chhattisgarh, more parts of South Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh and some more areas of Uttar Pradesh.

After another 48 hours, the Monsoon progress will slow down once again, and rains will reduce. This weakening of current will continue until the end of the month. Heavy rains will be seen, but they will remain confined to Northeast India, including Sikkim.

On the other hand, the central, southern as well as eastern parts will remain subdued. The West Coast may see moderate rains in some parts.

The rainfall deficiency has now dropped down to 38 percent and by the end of the month, the deficiency will be between 35 and 40 percent.
