Southwest Monsoon: rain activities are being seen in many states of the country.

At the same time, conditions may become favorable for withdrawal of Southwest Monsoon from some parts of Northwest India during 3 days. According to the Meteorological Department, the time has come for the departure of monsoon from the capital Delhi.
Monsoon returns after heavy rain
The Meteorological Department said on Monday that the withdrawal of monsoon will start in the next two days after heavy rains in the last phase of four months of rainfall.

India received 872.7 mm of rain between June 1 and September 19, which is 7 per cent more than the normal rainfall of 817.2 mm for the period. According to the Meteorological Department, due to the cyclonic circulation at the lower troposphere level over Northwest India, the weather will remain dry over West Rajasthan, Punjab and adjoining areas of Haryana during the next five days.
