People in northern India, who are troubled by the scorching heat, got some relief from the rain on Thursday. At the same time, Deputy Director-General of India Meteorological Department Anand Sharma said that there is a possibility of rain in Delhi-NCR and parts of north-west India and winds can be moving at a speed of 40-50 km.
- The conditions are expected to be favorable for the onset of the southwest monsoon in Kerala around June 1, 2020
- The department said that a low-pressure area has formed over the west-central Arabian Sea
- This situation is favorable for bringing monsoon in Kerala on 1 June.
According to the Meteorological Department, the temperature is going to be below 40 degrees for the next 4 days and after 24 hours the heatwave will be over from all over India. Whereas, parts of the Maldives-Comorin region, some parts of the Bay of South Bengal, Andaman Sea, and remaining parts of Andaman are getting favorable conditions for the southwest monsoon to proceed during the next 48 hours.
The conditions are expected to be favorable for the onset of the southwest monsoon in Kerala around June 1, 2020, with a low pressure expected to form in the south-east and adjoining the eastern the Arabian Sea around 31 May.
Kuldeep Srivastava, head of the regional forecast center of the India Meteorological Department, said the weather changed due to fresh western disturbances and easterly winds at lower levels. Dust storms and thunderstorms are expected in Delhi-NCR on May 29-30 with winds blowing at 60 kmph.
The science department said that due to the formation of a cyclone over the Bay of Bengal, the southwest monsoon may knock Kerala on June 1. The department, in its forecast released on May 15, said that the monsoon could hit the southern state on June 5. It is four days later than the normal monsoon date. In Kerala, monsoon usually knocks on June 1. However, due to the formation of a cyclone over the Bay of Bengal, the progress of monsoon is likely to help.
The department said that a low-pressure area may form in the southeast and adjoining the east-central Arabian Sea from May 31 to June 4. This situation is favorable for bringing monsoon in Kerala on 1 June. The low-pressure zone is the first phase of any cyclone. It is not necessary that every low-pressure area takes the form of a cyclone. According to the Meteorological Department, the country is expected to receive normal rainfall this year.
The department said that a low-pressure area has formed over the west-central Arabian Sea. It is likely to change in the area of pressure during the next 48 hours. He told that in the next three days there is a strong possibility of moving north-west towards the coast of South-Oman and East Yemen. Under this weather condition, heavy rains are likely to occur over South Peninsular India from 28 to 31 May. Also, Kerala and Lakshadweep may also receive heavy rains on 30-31 May.
