Darpan News Desk IANS, 03 Apr, 2019

    Monsoon rain may be “below normal” this year, Skymet, a private weather forecasting agency, said on Wednesday.

     

    The monsoon is likely to be 93 per cent of the long period average (LPA), it said.


    Anything between 90-95 per cent of LPA falls under the “below-normal” category.


    LPA is the average of rainfall between 1951 and 2000, which is 89 cm.


    Skymet CEO Jatin Singh attributed the El Nino phenomenon as the reason behind a possible below normal rainfall.


    According to Skymet forecast, there is a 55 per cent chance of a “below-normal” rainfall.
