Signs of heat during monsoon

IMD Director General Mrutyunjay Mohapatra said that May was above normal in most parts of Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Gangetic West Bengal, East Uttar Pradesh, Coastal Andhra Pradesh, parts of North Chhattisgarh, East Madhya Pradesh, Telangana and Coastal Gujarat. The wind can blow. He has expressed the possibility of a neutral El Nino effect in the equatorial Pacific region in May. He pointed out that most of the weather models are indicating warming of the region during the monsoon from May.

Monsoon rains can have an effect

It is being told that El Nino or the warming of the equatorial Pacific Ocean has an effect on the monsoon rains in India. Apart from this, other factors such as sea surface or Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) temperature in the Indian Ocean also affect the weather. Mohapatra said that the neutral IOD conditions prevailing over the Indian Ocean augur well for the upcoming season. Such conditions are considered good for the Indian monsoon and can reduce the effect of El Nino.
