Southwest Monsoon 2019 delayed in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka, an island country in South Asia is located in the Indian Ocean to the southwest of the Bay of Bengal and to the southeast of the Arabian Sea. This pre-Monsoon season has been a dry one for the country barring few occasions. By May 25, the Southwest Monsoon knocks the door of this country. However, this doesn’t seem the case this time. Three days have already passed with little sign of rain activities.

The experts have to say that now the conditions seem favourable for the advancement of Southwest Monsoon in South Bay of Bengal in next 48 hours. Sri Lanka still has to wait for few more days for the Monsoons to arrive. The West Coast of Sri Lanka might continue to witness intermittent rain and thundershower activities for next three to four days especially over Colombo and Galle. However, typical Monsoon rains will be absent until June 2 or June 3.

The exact date for the arrival of Southwest Monsoon 2019 still looks topsy turvy. Around June 2 and 3, south-westerlies will blow over Sri Lanka which would help in bringing rains. However, these rains would be light to moderate in nature with isolated heavy spells. Hopefully, these rains would help in bringing relief from hot and dry weather conditions. While the regions over the eastern coast would mainly witness dry weather, isolated spells cannot be ruled out over Jaffna, Trincomalee and Batticaloa.
