According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), “Southwest Monsoon is projected to blanket the whole country during the week of June 30 to July 6.”
On Thursday (June 23, 2022), the India Meteorological Department (IMD) announced in New Delhi that the Southwest Monsoon is more likely than not going to blanket the whole country by July 6, which is two days earlier than the typical date of July 8. According to the information provided by the weather bureau, the southwest monsoon got off to an early start but has been pushing late across south peninsular India and subsequently also over central India since there have been no favourable systems.
According to the IMD, the Southwest Monsoon typically spreads throughout the entirety of India by the eighth of July. On the other hand, the Extended Range Forecast (ERF) that was issued last evening projected that the “Southwest Monsoon is anticipated to blanket the whole country during the week of June 30 to July 6.” The ERF, according to a senior meteorologist at the IMD, “is only a guidance product,” and there is no timeframe for its release.
In the meantime, the Environmental Research Foundation (ERF) said that India had an abnormally high amount of precipitation during the week of the meteorological forecast that concluded on Wednesday.
