Monsoon, which has remained sluggish so far this year, is likely to gain momentum from this Sunday.

Monsoon, which has remained sluggish so far this year, is likely to gain momentum from this Sunday. Monsoon's approach is creating a possibility of rain in parts of East and North India. These areas are currently in the grip of severe heat. Meteorologists have said that there is a possibility of good and regular rains till the end of June and the beginning of July, which will bring more than normal rains along the west, central and east coast of India.

According to IMD Director General Mrutyunjay Mohapatra, from June 18 to June 21, conditions will be favorable for further advance of monsoon in parts of East and North India. News agency PTI reported that due to the effect of cyclone Biparjoy, there will be rain in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh and some adjoining areas on Sunday, which will help the monsoon to move forward.

Biperjoy also has an effect on the weather

Monsoon remained calm since 11 May due to the absence of any weather system over the Bay of Bengal and the influence of a severe cyclonic storm on the Southwest Monsoon Stream. Now due to Biparjoy, there is a possibility of moving towards north-east and rain in central and eastern Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

It will rain in these states from June 20

After heavy rains in Rajasthan, it will rain in central and eastern UP and Madhya Pradesh from June 20. Mahesh Palawat, vice-president (meteorology and climate change) of private forecasting agency Skymet Weather, said, “It will pull the monsoon winds and help the monsoon advance into eastern India.

Monsoon reached Kerala on 8 June

This year the monsoon knocked in Kerala on 8th June. It was a week later than usual. According to some meteorologists, due to the cyclone, the monsoon was delayed and a light monsoon arrived. Monsoon has so far covered the entire Northeast, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, parts of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and parts of Bengal.

Reason for delay in monsoon explained in research

Research shows that delayed onset of monsoon over Kerala (MOK) does not necessarily mean delayed onset of monsoon over northwest India. However, the delay in MoK is usually associated with delayed onset of monsoon, at least in the southern states and Mumbai.
