The SWM which started on June 5 has now completely withdrawn from all parts of India. A large subtropical high pressure has formed over Central India, signaling dry weather for most parts of the country in the days to come. A western disturbance persists over North Pakistan and its neighboring region which is expected to move eastwards bringing widespread heavy rainfall for the state of J& K and HP. Another disturbance persists in the Comorin Sea and its adjoining South TN which is likely to bring thunderstorms for South TN, coastal parts of Central TN and Kerala for the next 2 days. North TN will remain mostly dry with a chance of sporadic thundershowers in a few places of coastal region. Normally when SWM withdraws, North east monsoon (NEM) starts in a few days’ time, but this year there will be a delay in the onset of the NEM.
