Monsoon 2021 arrives in Kerala:

Monsoon will be normal this year. According to the Meteorological Department, this year the southwest monsoon is expected to be normal in North and South India, above normal in Central India and below normal in East and Northeast India.

Earlier, IMD Director General Mrityunjay Mohapatra had told that the southwest monsoon (June-September) rainfall is likely to be 96 to 104 percent of the normal Long Period Average (LPA). According to him quantitatively, the monsoon rains in the country are likely to be 101 percent of the LPA.

Rain Alert in Pan-India:

Monsoon usually reaches Kerala on June 1. The IMD had earlier predicted the arrival of monsoon here on May 31 or four days earlier or earlier, but on May 30, it had said that the condition of monsoon has not yet arrived in Kerala. Then on Thursday, there was talk of the onset of monsoon.

The Director General of the Meteorological Department had said that the advance of the Southwest Monsoon has been hampered by the cyclonic circulation over the Karnataka Coast.

According to IMD, the onset of Southwest Monsoon over Kerala depends on three parameters. If after May 10, 60 per cent of the 14 stations- Minicoy, Amini, Thiruvananthapuram, Punalur, Kollam, Allappuzha, Kottayam, Kochi, Thrissur, Kozhikode, Thalassery, Kannur, Kudulu and Mangalore received 2.5 mm or more of rainfall for two consecutive days. On the second day, the onset of monsoon in Kerala is announced, provided the other two parameters are also met.
