  • Monsoon Likely To Be Below Normal This Year, Says Forecasting Agency

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.

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