  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) forecasts a near normal Southwest Monsoon for 2019 suggesting that June to September rainfall is likely to be 96 percent of the Long Period Average (LPA). The onset date of the Southwest Monsoon is forecast for June 6, which is a delay of five days. Central India has been receiving normal to excess rainfall during the pre-monsoon period, while most of the other regions have received deficit rainfall from the previous year. These trends are reflected in their corresponding reservoir storage levels.
