Monsoon activity has revived over weekend and is making steady advance: IMD

India Meteorological Department said that the monsoon activity has revived over the weekend and is making a steady advance. 

The IMD  said, central India and north Indian plains, that have been witnessing a rise in temperatures, are likely to get some relief in the next two to three days.

Additional Director General Mritunjay Mohapatra said, conditions are becoming favourable for pre-monsoon thunderstorm activity over parts of northwest India from June 27. The monsoon is expected to hit Delhi on June 29, its normal onset date for the national capital.

After making an early arrival on May 29, three days ahead of its normal on-set date, the Southwest Monsoon battered the coastal parts of Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra and south Gujarat. However, the overall monsoon deficiency till yesterday stood at minus 10 per cent.

Mr Mohapatra said, the monsoon has revived from yesterday. It has advanced to Gujarat's Saurashtra region, Veraval, Ahemdabad, and Maharashtra's Amravati today. 

On the eastern side, it has covered the entire Assam, reached Jalpaiguri in north West Bengal and Midnapore in south West Bengal. The North Indians plains will receive pre-monsoon thunder showers on June 27th.

He said, in the next 48 hours, the remaining parts of Odisha, West Bengal, some parts of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, remaining parts of Maharashtra, and east Uttar Pradesh will witness monsoon showers.
