‘India to receive more than normal rainfall’

| | New Delhi

India will experience a little more than normal rainfall this monsoon, according to a forecast by a weather risk management company.

“As per our models, India will receive more than normal rainfall this year. June is

expected to receive fairly good rainfall, around 25 per cent more than the normal limit,” said Kanti Prasad, senior consultant (climate sciences), Weather Risk Management Services Ltd.

In June, the country is expected to receive 25 per cent more rainfall than normal. Rainfall will start receding thereafter, but will remain within the parameters of “normal monsoon”, he said.

Northeast India, however, may not receive good rainfall, he said.

“Generally, the trend is when the entire India receives good rainfall, the northeastern part does not receive good rainfall,” Prasad added. The India Meteorological Department is expected to come out with its forecast later this month. It has indicated a good rainfall this year with the weakening of El-Nino.
