    Published on August 14, 2018

    Monsoon is expected to become more active across the country this week. Additional Director General, MeT Department Mritunjay Mohapatra said in New Delhi that there is a low pressure over the Bay of Bengal which will make the Monsoon more active and is likely to bring good showers over central India, reducing overall rain deficiency.

    He said, rainfall activity over Kerala, Karnataka and the ghats of Tamil Nadu is likely to increase in intensity again during the next 48 hours, in addition to a fresh surge of monsoon westerlies.
    Mr Mohapatra also said, a monsoon trough over the western Himalayas was bringing rains over Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, parts of Uttar Pradesh and other states.
