The IMD said, “Heatwave conditions are likely in isolated pockets of Punjab, Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Rajasthan on May 17.”

India Meteorological Department (IMD) has said that the southwest monsoon is likely to advance into the south Andaman Sea, some parts of the southeast Bay of Bengal, and the Nicobar Islands around May 19, three days ahead of its normal onset. The weather office has also issued a fresh heatwave warning for North India.

The monsoon normally approaches Kerala around June 1; thereafter it advances northwards, usually in surges, and covers the entire country around July 15.

Last week, the Met Office said India would experience above-normal monsoon rains this season on the back of favourable La Nina conditions.

M Ravichandran, the secretary in the Ministry of Earth Sciences, told a press conference that the seasonal rainfall will be on the higher side of ‘above-normal’, and pegged it at 106 percent of the long-period average (87 cm).

FRESH HEATWAVE WARNING FOR NORTH INDIA

The Met Office has issued fresh heatwave warnings for the northern and northwestern states of the nation.

In a series of posts on the social media platform, X, the IMD predicted a fresh spell of heatwave over Northwest India from May 16.

The IMD said, “Heatwave conditions are likely in isolated pockets of Punjab, Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Rajasthan on May 17.”

RAINS ON CARDS IN SOUTH CENTRAL INDIA

The Met Office said, “Wet spell with isolated heavy rainfall accompanied with thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds is very likely over south Peninsular India May 17.”

It also forecasted rains in the eastern and central parts of the country till May 14.
