According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the southwest monsoon will cover the whole country between June 30 and July 6.

Between the months of June and September of each year, the Indian subcontinent is blessed with the presence of the southwest monsoon, which is also referred to as the summer monsoon. The vast bulk of India’s annual precipitation — perhaps in the neighbourhood of 75 percent — falls during this monsoon season. And for a nation like India, where agriculture is the major source of income for over 60 percent of the population, this harvest season, which lasts for four months, is of the utmost importance.

The monsoon rains typically arrive in India for the first time on June 1 and continue across the nation until July 8.

On the other hand, the monsoons came in Kerala on May 29th, which is about one week earlier than they normally do. Their subsequent advancement throughout the remainder of the country, on the other hand, has been somewhat turbulent.

Both the onset of the monsoon and its activity in Central India remained unremarkable throughout the season. As a consequence of its delayed start throughout the majority of the nation during the first half of June, India recorded 43 percent fewer precipitation than usual for the first half of June. This was compared to the typical amount of rain that falls during this time period.

On the other hand, rainfall activity has increased since the 15th of June, with the days between the 16th and the 19th of June being the rainiest and making up for the dry spell that came before it.

And now, the extended range prediction that was released by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has suggested that the southwest monsoon may reach the all of India between the dates of June 30 and July 6. Officials from the IMD, however, have said that this date is not the precise date and that this is only a “guide product.”

The monsoon rains have so far engulfed the entirety of India, with the exception of the region located in the northwest. As of the 24th of June, the northern boundary of the monsoon is moving through the regions of Porbandar and Vadodara in the state of Gujarat, Shivpuri and Rewa in the state of Madhya Pradesh, and Churk in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

Between June 16 and June 22, India experienced rainfall that was 45 percent higher than the long-term average. However, northeast India experienced rainfall that was 120 percent higher than the long-term average, while east and northeast India experienced rainfall that was 77 percent higher, and south peninsular India experienced rainfall that was 29 percent higher. On the other hand, it was 2% lower than the standard for the central region of India.
