Southwest Monsoon to cover entire India by 6th July: IMD | Southwest monsoon to cover entire India by July 6: IMD

Digital Desk, New Delhi. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Thursday that the crucial southwest monsoon for the Kharif crop is likely to reach the entire country by July 6, while the normal date is July 8. After an early onset, Southwest Monsoon is progressing late in the absence of favorable systems over South Peninsular India and later Central India. IMD said that as of today, the Northern Limit of Monsoon (NLM) is passing through Porbandar, Vadodara (both Gujarat), Shivpuri, Rewa (both Madhya Pradesh) and Churk (Uttar Pradesh).

The IMD says that the Southwest Monsoon normally covers the entire country by July 8. However, the Extended Range Forecast (ERF) issued on Thursday evening said: Southwest Monsoon is likely to hit the entire country from June 30 to July 6. When asked about the exact date, a senior meteorologist at IMD said that there is no date, and the ERF is just a guidance. When asked about the date of monsoon with the national capital, he said, “At present, we are monitoring various features and no such date can be given.”

Meanwhile, the ERF noted that the entire country received excess rainfall during the weather forecast week that ended on Wednesday. The weekly cumulative all-India rainfall was 45 per cent above its Long Period Average (LPA), with a weekly cumulative 120 per cent over North West India, 77 per cent over East and Northeast India and 29 per cent over South Peninsular India. However, for central India it was minus 2 per cent.
