Monsoon advancement seen on the satellite picture

Active Monsoon is expected in the month of June, Monsoon hit Andaman sea on May 17 while it hits Kerala on June 1. Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) did say that Monsoon might hit Kerala on June 3 but PWP in its Monsoon III did say that it would hit early than June 3.

Temperatures are decreasing in central India due to the depression BOB 02 which has moved inland as an UAC. Monsoon will now move into Karnataka,  Andhra Pradesh and other parts of Tamil Nadu. Monsoon still has to move towards central India and then westwards. There are slim chances of tropical activity in the Arabian sea in the month of June.

Pre-Monsoon can break the Pak heat!

Scattered pre-monsoon can occur in Sindh and North-eastern areas of Punjab from the middle week of June. Surrounding areas of South Punjab can also be affected depending upon the track of monsoons circulation.

    • Walikum assalam,
      As written in the article, it would depend on the circulation. If it moves more westwards then there would be chances..

    • Walikum Assalam,

    NORTHERN INDIAN OCEAN / Arabian Sea
    Update from JTWC at 1030 GMT
    System 96A
    Position 18.1N 66.7E
    Location 570 miles SE of Muscat, Oman
    Likelihood of tropical cyclone formation is LOW

  4. I see the high level clouds coming from East/South East. Babar bhai as you mentioned in your article that the monsoon season for southern half will be near normal but unfortunately annual Karachi rainfall is very low, around 200 mm. Some times 200 mm of rain falls in a single day. that’s what we need this time too. Is there any possibility for such wet spell? Also tell me that how much influence arabian sea has over rains in Karachi, since depressions develop in BOB usually brings the rain to this part.

    • It is very rare than 200 mm rain falls in just one day, last it was in July 2009. By most 100+ can fall though there are no mature forecast of such thing happening as of now.
