The monsoon has been in a weak phase for a few days after being in overdrive for some weeks. Total rainfall this season since June 1 remains slightly above normal, says Indian Metorological Department (IMD). The weather office remains confident that monsoon will perform well for the rest of the season. The only region where monsoon was normal in the past day was northeastern Indian & parts of Bengal. Accordimg to the weather forecaster, heavy to very heavy rain is very likely at isolated places over Assam & Meghalaya.


It hasn’t even been a week since Uttarakhand was throttled with torrential rains. The state of Uttarakhand may witness heavy rainfall once again. This rainy spell is expected to commence today and will continue till July 23. During this period, isolated areas may witness very heavy rainfall as well, says Skymet. 
“The axis of the Monsoon trough is running close to the foothills of the Himalayas. Due to this, the hilly state of Uttarakhand will witness increased rains during the aforementioned period”, Skymet said.
Skymet also said that the month of July has been good for the state of Uttar Pradesh. Moderate to heavy Monsoon rains have been lashing the region for quite some time now. The foothills of Uttar Pradesh have been receiving incessant Monsoon rains for the past few days. According to the weather forecaster, these rains can be attributed to the upper air cyclonic circulation which is lingering over Bihar for the past few days. Currently, the weather system continued to persist over Bihar and adjoining Sub-Himalayan West Bengal. Also, the axis of the Monsoon trough continues to run close to the foothills of the Himalayas.
