According to data revealed by the meteorological department, less than 25 per cent of the country recorded a rainfall that can be termed as ‘normal’ or ‘excess’. Central parts of India and the north Indian plains, that have been witnessing a rise in temperatures, are expected to get some relief in the next two to three days, the meteorological department said.
Conditions are becoming favourable for pre-monsoon thunderstorm activity over parts of northwest India from June 27, IMD’s Additional Director General Mritunjay Mohapatra was quoted as saying by PTI.
“The monsoon has revived from June 23. It has today advanced to Gujarat’s Saurashtra (region), Veraval, Ahemdabad, and Maharashtra’s Amravati. On the eastern side, it has covered the entire Assam, reached Jalpaiguri in north West Bengal and Midnapore in south West Bengal. The North Indians plains will receive pre-monsoon thunder showers on June 27,” Mohapatra added.
