However, Central India has to face the monsoon’s harshness for some more days as there’s no sign yet of its withdrawal from the country.
Generally, the withdrawal of monsoon begins from September 1 starting from Rajasthan.
B P Yadav, director, India Meteorological Department said, “Monsoon remains very much active in the country and we see no signs of withdrawal beginning in the next five days”.
The country recorded a sharp gain in the monsoon deficit in the past 10 days, narrowed to 11%.
Around September 2, a confluence of three rain-bearing systems over Punjab drew copious amounts of moisture into north India in a five-day spell that wreaked havoc in J&K.
