Updated on June 18, 05:10 PM: Monsoon 2019 to advance further as low pressure to come up in Bay of Bengal

Southwest Monsoon has so far not seen any significant advancement at least on the Arabian Sea side. Moreover, on the Bay of Bengal side as well, Southwest Monsoon 2019 has only advanced until extreme northern parts of Bengal and Sikkim and East India is still devoid of Monsoon rains.

Now, with an upcoming low-pressure area in Bay around June 20, Monsoon is likely to advance further.

Updated on June 17, 12:10 PM: Monsoon soon to make an entry over Chhattisgarh and Odisha in the next few days

Chhattisgarh is gearing up for a rainy spell in the next 24 to 48 hours. Places like Jagdalpur, Rajnandgaon, Ambikapur, Bilaspur and Raipur will witness these weather activities.

Monsoon is expected to reach the southern districts of the Chhattisgarh within next three to four days.

Also, a Trough is passing across Odisha, due to which we expect rain intensity to increase, particularly, over South and Coastal Odisha, while scattered rains would continue for some more days over the interior parts.

On and off rainfall and thundershower activities are expected to continue for the next two to three days over the entire state.

Moreover, we expect Monsoon to make an entry in Odisha, within next two to three days due to the increasing intensity of rainfall activities over the state.

Updated on June 16, 04:40 PM: Monsoon to advance further over parts of Karnataka, rest of Northeast India, more areas of Bengal

Although Monsoon has advanced in some more parts of Northeast India in the last 24 hours, now conditions are favorable for the advancement of Monsoon over almost all the Northeastern states. So, in the next 24 to 48 hours, we expect Monsoon to reach Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim covering entire Northeastern states of Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura. These on and off rain activities are likely to continue for at least next three to four days.

Also, back at Central India, the merging of south-westerly and northerly winds over Odisha and its adjoining areas combined with a Trough that is extending from Northeast India up to coastal Odisha are set to enhance rainfall activity in the state of Odisha for the next three to four days. So, we expect Monsoon to cover parts of Odisha particularly South coastal Odisha in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Updated on June 14, 2:00 PM: Monsoon to advance further, to cover parts of Karnataka, Konkan and Goa

Southwest Monsoon 2019 continues to have a sluggish progress and has remained stationary since a long time now. By June 15, Monsoon covers at least two thirds of the country, however, until now, only 10 percent of the country has been able to see Monsoon showers.

Northeast India, which usually sees Monsoon making an onset in the beginning of June but this time, Monsoon has only reached until some parts of Mizoram and Manipur.

However, now Monsoon is likely to progress further, covering Kerala, most parts of coastal Karnataka as well as over some parts of Konkan and Goa, during the next 24 to 48 hours. On the other side, Northeast India may also see arrival of Monsoon.

Updated on June 12, 1:00 PM: In the last 24 hours, the rain activities have increased significantly over West Coast all over Maharashtra, Karnataka to Kerala. However, rain activities are still scanty over Interior Peninsula. Also, scattered rain and thundershower activities are going on over Northeast India.

We now expect Monsoon to cover entire coastal Karnataka and parts of Konkan and Goa during the next 24 hours. Interior Peninsula and Northeast India, on the other hand, will have to wait for another two to three days for the onset.

However, due to the increase in rain intensity over Northeast India after 24 hours, Monsoon might make a progress over Northeast by June 14.

Updated on June 11, 6:00 PM: The wait for Mumbai Monsoon is going to end very soon as weather conditions are getting favorable for the onset of Monsoon here.

Cyclone Vayu is leading to continuous rains over the region. Mumbai is likely to witness Monsoon onset by this weekend. This would be mean a delay in onset by a week as the normal date is June 10.

With cyclonic storm Vayu now abeam Mumbai, conditions remain very much favorable for more rains today also.

Updated on June 11, 5:00 PM: Light to moderate rains are continuing over parts of Kerala, and Karnataka today as well. Also, since the last few hours, rains are being witnessed over a few areas of Assam. These rains are further contributing to the onset of Monsoon over these areas. Already meteorologists at Skymet have forecast the onset of Monsoon in Karnataka and Northeast states in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Updated on June 11, 12:00 pm: At present, the Northern Limit of Monsoon (NML) is still passing through Kannur, Madurai and via Southwest and East-central Bay of Bengal to Northeast Bay of Bengal up to Aisol. During the last 24 hours, moderate to heavy rains have occurred over Kerala, Coastal Karnataka and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Light to moderate rains were seen over northeastern states, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal while Sikkim received extremely heavy rains at a few places.

Now, conditions are becoming favorable for the Monsoon to cover more parts of Kerala, South Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Northeast India during the next 48 hours.

Update on June 10, 02:30 PM: After a long wait, Southwest Monsoon has now reached some parts of Northeast India covering many areas of Mizoram as well as Manipur.

Also, there are chances of a Cyclone to soon form over the West Coast as a Low-Pressure Area has now intensified into a Depression. This Depression can soon form into a Cyclonic Storm in the next 24 to 48 hours. This will be named as Cyclone Vayu.

Update on June 09, 1:50 PM: Southwest Monsoon 2019 finally marked its onset over Kerala during the last 24 hours after a delay of almost one week. Now, conditions are also becoming favorable for the advancement of Southwest Monsoon into southern parts of Northeast India during the next 48 hours. Fairly widespread moderate to heavy rain and thundershower activities are occurring over parts of Kerala. We expect the rain deficiency of Kerala to go down or come near normal. In fact, in the wake of such widespread rains, the state may also become rain surplus in the coming one week.

Update on June 09, 11:00 AM: Southwest Monsoon 2019 kick-started on a poor note, with rains on the lower side. In fact, the West Coast that is one of major contributor has remained silent so far. The onset of Monsoon was also a weak one, with only light rains with few moderate showers in sight over Kerala.

As a result, the first week of Monsoon ended with a whopping countrywide cumulative rain deficiency to the tune of 42%. From June 1 to June 7, the country recorded 13.9 mm of rains against the normal of 24 mm.
Out of 36 sub-divisions, only 1 was largely deficient, 2 were excess, 5 were normal, but 11 were deficient, 15 were large deficient and 2 saw no rains at all.

Read in detail: Poor start for Monsoon 2019 as first weekends with 42 per cent rain deficiency, recovery not likely

Update on June 08, 4:20 PM: While on one side the system aligned all the features of Monsoon and finally pulling the Monsoon surge over Kerala, on the other hand, it would be the reason behind its sluggish advancement.

As the low-pressure area continues to get more marked, moist winds would now concentrate over the system. As a result, rains would reduce significantly reduce along the coast. Although, it would give some rains along with coastal areas of Kerala, Coastal Karnataka and Konkan & Goa, but would not be enough for further advancement of Monsoon.

Update on June 08, 3:15 PM: After a long wait, and a delay of one week, Southwest Monsoon 2019 has finally made an onset over the state of Kerala. Weather conditions had started to become favourable for the onset of Monsoon in Kerala for the last couple of days.

Southwest Monsoon has also arrived over parts of Lakshadweep, some parts of South Tamil Nadu and rest of Comorin-Maldives area. The Northern Limit of Monsoon (NLM) is currently passing through Latitude 11°N/ Longitude 60°E, Latitude 11°N/ Longitude 70°E, Amini Divi, Kochi, Madurai, Latitude 11°N/ Longitude 86°E, Latitude 16°N/ Longitude 91°E, and Latitude 20°N/ Longitude 94°E.
