Nothing unusual about monsoon lull: IMD

The southwest monsoon, which has covered entire so­u­th peninsula and some pa­r­ts of central India, is likely to reach more areas in 48 hou­rs before entering into a lull, said a senior official of IMD.

Every year the monsoon goes into a lull and there is nothing abnormal in this, the official said.

Meanwhile, conditions are becoming favourable for further advance of monsoon into some more parts of Od­i­s­ha, remaining parts of the no­rtheastern states and so­me parts of Bengal and Si­kkim in 48 hours, said IMD.

On Monday, the southwest monsoon reached more parts of Marathwada, Vidha­r­bha, Chhattisgarh, parts of Bengal, Assam and Meghalaya, the bulletin added.
