Weather: Monsoon To Cover Rain-Deficit Northeast; Biparjoy Reaches Peak Intensity, Coastal Gujarat To Witness Heavy Rains

Usually by June 5th, Monsoon covers most of the northeastern parts of the country. But this year the onset of Southwest Monsoon over Kerala is delayed by 8 days. As of June 9th, almost all the Northeastern states are large rain deficient, and the overall deficiency of East and Northeast India is 82%.

Low pressure over the east Central Bay of Bengal has intensified into a well-mark low and subsequently into a depression. The weather system has moved over the Northeast Bay of Bengal. This depression will help in pulling the monsoon currents over Northeast India. 

Rain over many parts of NE states during next week

Skymet Weather said they expect moderate to heavy rain over many parts of north Eastern states during next week. Rain deficiency will start decreasing over North East India with the onset of monsoon. It will be delayed on set. Further progress of the monsoon over East India will get delayed. However, monsoon May make an onset over Sab Himalaya in West Bengal and Sikkim in the next 2 to 3 days.

But no relief from heat wave in East India

Skymet said heatwave to severe heatwave conditions is going on over parts of Bihar. Heatwave conditions at isolated pockets of Jharkhand, Odisha, and West Bengal. We do not expect any significant relief from ongoing hot weather conditions for at least the next 4 to 5 days over East India.

Biparjoy to intensify into extremely severe cyclonic storm

Meanwhile, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Sunday said that the Very Severe Cyclonic Storm (VSCS) 'Biparjoy' located over the east-central Arabian Sea moved northwards with a speed of 5 kmph and is likely to intensify into an extremely severe cyclonic storm during the next 6 hours. The IMD said Biparjoy has reached its peak intensity.

Coastal Gujarat may witness gusty winds and heavy rains 

M​eanwhile, the cyclone will slowly make its presence felt across the Gujarat coast as it heads closer to the West Indian state. Reports suggest coastal Gujarat may witness gusty winds and heavy rains starting early next week.

O​wing to such stormy conditions, the Indian Coast Guard has suspended all fishing operations over the east-central and adjoining west-central Arabian Sea until June 15, north and adjoining the central Arabian Sea from June 12-15, and along and off Saurashtra-Kutch coasts from June 10-15.
