This year's monsoon faces the risk of El Nino, which dries up the weather in India because of the adverse impact of the warming up of the equatorial Pacific Ocean.

Last month, announcing the expected day of monsoon arrival over Kerala, the IMD had said it could happen on June 6, with an error margin of plus or minus four days

North and south India are expected to have below normal monsoon this season, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said in its forecast on Friday.
