IMD predicts normal rainfall during southwest monsoon

On Tuesday, the IMD predicted normal rainfall in Hyderabad and other parts of the country during the southwest monsoon season despite the evolving El Nino conditions. The El Nino is the warming of the waters in the Pacific Ocean near South America. It is generally associated with the weakening of monsoon winds and dry weather in India.

The El Nino conditions this year follow three consecutive La Nina years. In La Nina, good rainfall occurs during the monsoon season.

Normal rainfall is critical for India’s agricultural landscape, with 52 percent of the net cultivated area relying on it. It is also crucial for the replenishing of reservoirs critical for drinking water, apart from power generation across the country.
