Monsoon Update: The rain in Delhi on Saturday has brought relief from the heat, but the trouble is going to increase again in the coming days. Meanwhile, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has given good news and told us when the monsoon rains will start in the entire North India including Delhi-NCR.


The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has said in a new forecast that the monsoon will start moving again across the country by July 3 and will cover the entire north-west India. Apart from the national capital Delhi, it also includes Punjab and Haryana. After this, monsoon rains will start across the country and people will get relief from the heat. Let us tell you that the monsoon had reached the North East by June 11, but after that its speed had slowed down and it has not been able to move forward. M Ravichandran, Secretary, Ministry of Earth Sciences, said, 'We expect a good recovery around the first week of July and the deficit from June will be compensated during this period.

It will start raining in these states in 3-4 days

According to a Hindustan Times report, the monsoon is expected to advance into Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, parts of Gangetic West Bengal, remaining parts of Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, parts of Jharkhand, some more parts of Bihar and parts of East Uttar Pradesh during the next 3-4 days. After this, rain will start in these states. The Meteorological Department has predicted that after this it will advance into northwest and central India from June 27. The IMD forecast said, 'Rainfall activity is likely to be above normal over most parts of the country except the western Himalayan region and western Rajasthan.' The forecast said, 'The southwest monsoon is likely to advance into most parts of the remaining parts of central India and most parts of the remaining parts of northwest India between June 27 and July 3.'

Why was the monsoon delayed?

The weather department also said that currently El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) conditions prevail, while La Nina conditions are expected to develop around August. El Nino is a cyclical warming of the equatorial Pacific region, which has a wide impact on weather around the world. In India, it usually causes a weak monsoon season. Whereas, La Nina is the opposite phenomenon and is associated with excessive rains in the Indian subcontinent.

M Rajeevan, former secretary of the Ministry of Earth Sciences and meteorologist, said, "The monsoon is getting active again. As I said, the monsoon will arrive by the first week of July. We expect good rains for the next 2-3 weeks. We have normal to above normal rainfall during the monsoon." Regarding the change in La Nina, he said, "We expect above-normal rainfall in August due to La Nina."
