Pune, According to meteorologists, the monsoon is expected to weaken before entering the country. The Indian Meteorological Department had forecast that the monsoon would reach Kerala by May 7, with four days of delay.
For the last few days, however, the progress of the monsoon has been slow. Moreover, the monsoon may slow down even after reaching Kerala.
According to a meteorological official, meteorological models suggest that the monsoon may take longer to reach the Bay of Bengal in the southwest after reaching Kerala. Under normal circumstances, monsoon arrives at both these places at the same time. Which literally means that after reaching Kerala on time, the monsoon may then face obstacles in moving forward.
As the monsoon progresses, slowing down is not a new phenomenon. It had recently gained strength. However, it is likely to slow down from now on. According to an official, the monsoon was moving fast as it reached the Andaman and Nicobar Islands after Hurricane Asani. However, it will take some time for the current slowdown to pick up again.
According to Anupam Kashyapi, head of the weather forecasting department at the IMD Pune office, the monsoon branch in the Bay of Bengal has not seen much movement at present.
The monsoon is showing signs of slowing down, especially in the Bay of Bengal in the South Central and South East. While the monsoon branch in the Arabian Sea is expected to become active around May 20-21, the monsoon in the Bay of Bengal may pick up speed. The whole picture will be clear in the next few days.
President of Skymet Weather Services G.P. According to Sharma, good rains lashed some parts of South India last week, but there was no significant movement in the subsequent monsoon. According to independent meteorologist Akshay Devaras, the monsoon reached the Andamans early due to the hurricane, but it is currently slowing down.
The monsoon is expected to reach Gujarat around June 15, but premonsoon activity has already started in the state. There has been general relief from the heat, but rising humidity has left people suffering.
On the other hand, Saurashtra and South Gujarat of the state have been experiencing rainy weather since yesterday. Valsad received heavy showers in some places on Tuesday, while Rajkot received half an inch of rain in half an hour. SS3MS
