The monsoon was supposed to withdraw from September 15 from south India. But it missed the date.
Hyderabad: Rain will continue till September-end as the monsoon’s withdrawal is delayed by a month. It was to start from September 1 from Rajasthan in the western region, and from September 15 from South India. Both dates have been missed.
Continuous low pressure in the Bay of Bengal is the culprit. There are consecutive formations of low pressure zones leading to winds from the east towards the west. This has caused sporadic and incessant rains.
“This year the withdrawal pattern has seen a change,” said weather expert Mahesh Palawat. “For withdrawal to happen, humidity must reduce, which has not happened so far.”
For that to happen, there must be no rain for five consecutive days. This has not happened in western Rajasthan, so the withdrawal hasn’t commenced. Rain is expected all over the country till month-end. The monsoon is still active in central and western India. The South is seeing sporadic rain.
Weather experts conclude that the withdrawal will begin by month-end.
“The withdrawal pattern has seen a shift due to cyclone Vayu,” weather expert Rajani said. “There was deficit rain in June and July, but normal and excess rain in August and September made up for it. Data shows overall rain in the country at five per cent above normal.”
