The Meteorological Department has predicted heavy rainfall in the next two days in Bihar and North-Eastern states. Senior IMD Naresh Kumar has said that there will be no heavy rainfall in Punjab, Haryana, and Delhi NCR in the coming five days. Moderate rains are likely in central India in the coming days.
Earlier, the Indian Meteorological Department had said, the southwest monsoon has moved ahead in the rest of Rajasthan, Haryana, and Punjab and it reached across the country today on 26 June. A low-pressure area in the Bay of Bengal that extended west-northwest and cyclonic circulation over central India helped the monsoon to move forward.
The monsoon usually reaches Kerala on June 1 and it takes 45 days to reach Sriganganagar in western Rajasthan, its last place in the country. In 2013, the monsoon reached across the country on 16 June. At the same time, there was a severe flood in Uttarakhand.
Let us tell you that this year the monsoon has reached the whole country about 12 days before the scheduled time. The Meteorological Department issued a statement saying that the monsoon has now become active in the entire country. However, the scheduled date of arrival of monsoon is July 8 in the border areas of Rajasthan and some areas of Punjab.
