The India Meteorological Department (IMD) stated the monsoon has advanced and blanketed the majority of Gujarat, as well as more portions of both Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
This year’s monsoon has arrived seven to eight days ahead of schedule in Gujarat and Rajasthan. For example, the monsoon enters the desert state of Rajasthan through Dholpur in eastern Rajasthan, with a usual arrival date of June 28.
Today, the Northern Limit of the Monsoon moved over Junagarh, Deesa, Guna, Kanpur, Meerut, Ambala, and Amritsar.
Meanwhile, the Southwest monsoon is still raging over the west coast and in Gangetic West Bengal. Between Maharashtra and Kerala, there is an off-shore trough that enhances the westerly winds. Heavy to very heavy rain (64.4mm to 204.4mm in 24 hours) is expected over the Konkan and Goa, Madhya Maharashtra, Gujarat, coastal and south Karnataka through Monday as a result of its influence.
The IMD has issued a warning for extreme heavy periods (more than 204.4mm in 24 hours) over the west and east Uttar Pradesh on Saturday due to the passage of a new stream of western disturbances.
The monsoon is likely to move further over the remaining regions of the northern Arabian Sea, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, south Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh during the next 24 hours due to the availability of favorable conditions, according to IMD.
