New Delhi, 01 Jun 2020: The southwest monsoon has made an onset over Kerala, marking the commencement of the four-month-long rainfall season, the India Meteorological Department said on Monday.



North India is likely to get “above normal” rainfall, while Central India and the southern peninsula will receive “normal” rainfall, the IMD said.


However, east and northeast India are likely to receive less rainfall than other parts of the country


“The southwest monsoon has made an onset over Kerala,” IMD director general Mrutyunjay Mohapatra said.


The four-month monsoon season from June to September accounts for 75 per cent of rainfall in the country.


Private forecaster Skymet Weather on May 30 had declared the arrival of monsoon, but the IMD had differed, saying conditions were not ripe then for such an announcement.
