IMD: Monsoon can hit Kerala on 29th May, Few days early then expectations!: Well, reports are coming that the Monsoon is all ready to hit Kerala on this 29th May much sooner than expected. Reports are confirming that it is reaching Indian three days ahead of its normal date of onset on India’s mainland. Also, the IMD said, “The south-west monsoon is expected to set in over Kerala on May 29 with a model error of ± 4 days.” The south-west monsoon sets over Kerala generally on June 1 with a standard deviation of about seven days.
Also, the sources are saying that this whole Monsoon will be different for India because the whole whether is affected by scorching summer temperatures. Some sources are saying that the event marks the start of the rainy season over the region and as the monsoon progresses northward. Also, the country’s national weather forecaster, IMD, has been issuing operational forecasts for the date of monsoon onset over Kerala since 2005 and they always predict it at the same time.
Also, you all should know that they already predicted the date a month ago and now they changed it all of the sudden. Also, they said that this season will see a ‘normal’ monsoon this year by pegging the season’s rainfall in the lower end of the normal range, at 97% of the long period average (LPA). Some reports are saying that nothing will change only the date shifted a bit and that’s all because of the recent disturbance.
Also, the IMD added on their official statement that,“Past data suggest that there is no association of the date of monsoon advance over the Andaman Sea either with the date of monsoon onset over Kerala or with the seasonal monsoon rainfall over the country.” We are expecting that things will be better than the previous year for the people in India.
