IMD Predicts Monsoon Arrival in Kerala and Northeast India Within 24 Hours

Monsoon Cloudy Sky

Here is some good news. The monsoon, which brings much-needed rain to the country, is expected to arrive in Kerala and some parts of the northeast within 24 hours. This is welcome news for farmers, as over half of India’s farmland relies on rain for watering crops. The monsoon will also bring relief from the scorching heat wave currently affecting northwest and central India. Temperatures are expected to drop by 3-4°C in these regions over the next few days.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) says conditions are favorable for the monsoon to spread further across India in the coming days. Last year, the monsoon arrived a week late on June 8th. Normally, the monsoon reaches Kerala around June 1st and then spreads across the country by mid-July. This year, the monsoon is arriving early in the northeast due to a strong wind flow from the Bay of Bengal.

Kerala has already seen heavy rains this week, causing some damage to houses and roads. The IMD has issued a yellow alert for heavy rainfall in some districts of Kerala.

The arrival of the monsoon is crucial for India’s agriculture sector. With over half of the country’s farmland dependent on rain, a good monsoon season is essential for a healthy harvest and strong rural economy.

The IMD has also forecast rain for other parts of India in the coming days. The northeast can expect widespread light to moderate rainfall with thunderstorms. Eastern India can expect scattered light to moderate rainfall, while the Western Himalayas will see some light rain. This rain should help to reduce the intensity of the heatwave in these regions.
