    The monsoon trough which is currently seen to the south of its normal position is likely to shift northwards towards the foothills of the Himalayas from 1st July to 6th July. As a result, the rainfall activity is likely to reduce over central India and increase along the foothills regions on 1st & 2nd July.

    According to the IMD, India is likely to receive a "better monsoon" than it did in 2017, with the entire country expected to see "normal rainfall" between 96 to 104 per cent from June to September, officials said. The southwest monsoon arrived in Kerala on May 29, three days ahead of schedule.

    It had advanced over eastern parts of the country on Tuesday last week before the hiatus. Weather officials said the break in monsoon's continuity, which would be 10-12 days, is a normal phenomenon.
