Monsoon will now spend more time in India. According to a new study by the Indian Meteorological Department(IMD), the monsoon is reaching all over India a week earlier than before. Not only the speed of monsoon has increased but also the monsoon has been staying in India for much longer than before. There have been changes in the monsoon pattern in recent years.
Recently, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a ‘red’ alert of heavy to very heavy rainfall on June13 and June14 in several parts of the country which includes: Telangana, Coastal Karnataka, Goa and the Konkan region.
As per the forecast released by IMD, the states like Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Meghalaya and Andhra Pradesh will receive moderate to heavy rainfall during the same time.
The prediction has been made in the light of low-pressure system that has formed over the west-central and adjoining northwest regions above Bay of Bengal. The IMD also forecasted that the several parts of Mumbai (Maharashtra) can expect very heavy rainfall on June14.
A media report quoting the weather department states that the low-pressure system would travel west-north-westwards over the next few days, making Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir and parts of Uttarakhand experience lightning and thundershowers.
However, the dry weather will continue in different parts of the country, including the possibility of heatwave conditions in Rajasthan from June13 to June16.
