Monsoon update: South-west monsoon to pause for a week from Thursday, heavy rainfall in NE


Ongoing monsoon will progress normally during the next two days, but then there will be 'pause' for a week from Thursday onwards. It will, however, not affect the normal date of onset of monsoon in Delhi. The IMD has issued a 48-hour warning of 'enhanced rainfall' in the northeastern states during this period.

''Conditions are becoming favourable for further advance of Southwest Monsoon into some more parts of Odisha, remaining parts of northwest Bay of Bengal and Northeastern States and some parts of West Bengal & Sikkim during next 48 hours. Thereafter no further advance likely during next one week due to the probable weakening of monsoon flow,'' said the IMD.

Meanwhile, the precipitation activity across the state was likely to increase in the coming 48 hours, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.
