Agriculture News : India will Receive Normal Monsoon during the June-September
According to the Private firm Weather Risk Management Services, India will receive normal rainfall
during the June-September monsoon season.
"The 2016 monsoon rains will be normal and well distributed. The models are indicating above
average rainfall from June to September," said Kanti Prasad, head-meteorology at Gurgaon
headquartered Weather Risk Management Services.
There may be some areas in northeast India, Maharashtra and Rajasthan where overall rainfall
activity may be somewhat on the negative side of the normal during monsoon. In the four-month
rainy season, rains in June are expected to be the maximum.
He said that most global models indicated continued weakening of El Nino conditions over the
coming months, returning to normal by late spring or early summer 2016 and a chance of La Nina
development by fall. These signals are favourable for above normal monsoon rainfall over the
country during June to September, 2016.
