“There are no signs of monsoon withdrawal from north India for the next 10 days": IMD Director

New Delhi: India will see an extended monsoon spell this year as rainfall activity over north India shows no sign of abate till the end of September. An anti-cyclonic wind has to form over the lower troposphere, and there should also be a substantial reduction in moisture content. "There are no signs of monsoon withdrawal from north India for the next ten days," IMD Director General Mrutunjay Mohapatra said.

According to the IMD, southwest monsoon withdrawal from northwest India takes place if there is the cessation of rainfall activity over the area for continuous five days. The southwest monsoon starts withdrawing from west Rajasthan first. According to the revised date, it starts withdrawing from Jaisalmer on September 17.

In 2020, the IMD had revised the date for the withdrawal of monsoon from northwest India by nearly a fortnight. This was done keeping in mind the trend of a delayed retreat of monsoon observed over the last few years. The southwest monsoon saw delayed withdrawals in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020. A delayed withdrawal of monsoon also means a delayed onset of winter. Officially, the southwest monsoon season starts on June 1 and lasts till September 30.
