Advancing further, the Southwest Monsoon covered the northeast region, nearly four days after its normal date, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Sunday.

The Southwest Monsoon made an onset over Kerala, which marks the beginning of the four-month rainfall season, on June 3 after a delay of two days.

In a span of three days it has covered entire Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and parts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

“Southwest Monsoon has further advanced into more parts of central Arabian Sea, some more parts of Maharashtra, entire Karnataka, some more parts of Telengana, entire Tamil Nadu, some more parts of Andhra Pradesh, more parts of central Bay of Bengal and northeast Bay of Bengal and hence the entire northeastern states of India (Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura, Assam and Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh), most parts of Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim today, 6th June 2021,” the IMD said.

Monsoon covers different parts of the northeast from June 3 to 10. For instance, its normal date to reach Agartala, Aizawl, Shillong and Imphal is June 1 and Gangtok in Sikkim is June 10.

However, the progress is going to slow over the next two days, June 7 and 8, the IMD said.

The activity is expected to pick up after that due to a cyclonic circulation that is likely to form over the Bay of Bengal. This will also help the monsoon cover Odisha, Jharkhand, parts of West Bengal and Bihar by June 15, it said.

Monsoon is expected to be normal this season as well as in June, a month critical for sowing.
