The return of the monsoon this year could begin between September 24-26, a week later than the scheduled date of the monsoon calendar, September 17.

This is the 11th and last low pressure area of ​​the monsoon in the Bay of Bengal on Sunday, which will extend from East India to West India till September 23. This was preceded by a low pressure area on 13 September, followed by five lows on August 1, two highs in July, and one low-pressure area except for a natural hurricane in June.

Kuldeep Srivastava, a meteorologist with the Meteorological Department, says the announcement of the return of the monsoon at any place should be met on two conditions. The pattern of the first wind changes, i.e. about one and a half km from the surface. Elevation creates anti-cyclonic circulation (per cyclone), with westerly winds blowing and no rain for the last five days. According to meteorologist Anand Kumar, the easterly winds bring moisture to the Bay of Bengal. If there is evidence in the satellite images that the air has run out of moisture, then the return of the monsoon is considered to have begun.
