‘Rains likely to shift to the north­east from Sept 29’

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Na­tion -

Not only is the mon­soon’s re­treat likely to be de­layed by over a month, the sys­tem has been show­ing high ac­tiv­ity till very late in the sea­son. The all-In­dia av­er­age rain­fall in Septem­ber so far is 37% above nor­mal. The month has had just two days of be­low-nor­mal rains so far. In fact, av­er­age daily rain­fall has picked up again this week in all re­gions ex­cept north­west In­dia.

This week, a low pres­sure sys­tem com­ing in from Bay of Ben­gal caused un­usu­ally heavy show­ers over Te­lan­gana and other places in south In­dia be­fore wreak­ing havoc over Ma­ha­rash­tra’s Pune dis­trict. Now, the ac­tiv­ity has shifted to east In­dia, par­tic­u­larly Bi­har.

Mo­ha­p­a­tra said rains are likely to shift to the north­east from Septem­ber 29, par­tic­u­larly Mi­zo­ram, Ma­nipur and Tripura. “There­after, some rain­fall may oc­cur over north Mad­hya Pradesh and Haryana, in­clud­ing Delhi, on Oc­to­ber 1and 2,” the IMD DGM said.
