Explain advancing monsoon

Dear Soumesh,

Advancing monsoon

  • By the first week of June, low pressure conditions get intensified over the Northern Indian Plains. These conditions attract the south east trade winds that originate from the Southern oceans.
  • These winds blow over the warm oceans and thus bring moisture and rainfall into the country.
  • During early monsoon season, the places located on the windward side of the Western Ghats receive heavy rainfall up to 250 cm.
  • The north eastern parts of the country receive heavy rainfall. Mawsynram in Meghalaya receive the highest amount of rainfall in the world.
  • As we go from east to the west, the rainfall decreases. Rajasthan and Gujarat receive scanty rainfall. 
  • Rain does not fall continuously during the monsoon season. Thus, there are dry spells and wet spells. Monsoons are uncertain and irregular in nature.
