New Delhi, July 10 (MNN) The weatherman on Saturday predicted heavy rain in north-western states apart from Delhi, saying that this was the most delayed monsoon in years. From July 11, the monsoon would gain strength in majority of Indian states.

Private weather forecaster Skymet said that the wait for the monsoon was over and it was slated to move forward.

The deficit in rainfall felt till now was getting taken care of slowly, bringing relief for farmers who have sown their crops.

Skymet also said that central and southern India too were expected to experience heavy rain.

“Rain and thunderstorm is possible over Pathankot, Gurdaspur, Kathua, Rajori, Samba, Jammu and Udhampur districts for the next few hours,” Skymet’s Mahesh Palawat tweeted.

“Monsoon 2021 will be most delayed monsoon over north-west India, including Delhi, since 2006. Rain may commence from July 11 and may intensify thereafter. Relief from hot and sultry weather from tomorrow,” he said.

The IMD said that the northern limit of southwest monsoon (NLM) continues to pass through Barmer, Bhilwara, Dholpur, Aligarh, Meerut, Ambala and Amritsar.

Isolated very heavy rainfall was very likely over Himachal Pradesh on July 11 and 12 and over Uttarakhand during July 10-12, the India Meteorological Department said.

Rain was likely over Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit-Baltistan and Muzaffarabad, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand during July 10-13, over Punjab during July 10-13, over Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi and west Uttar Pradesh during July 11-13, and over east Rajasthan during July 10-12.

Enhanced rainfall activity with fairly widespread to widespread rainfall with isolated heavy to very heavy falls very likely along the west coast and adjoining peninsular India very likely to continue during next fiven days, it added.

“Due to further strengthening of south-westerly winds from Arabian Sea and likely formation of a Low Pressure Area over west-central and adjoining north-west Bay of Bengal on July 11, fairly widespread to widespread rainfall very likely over central India (MP, Vidarbha, Chhattisgarh and Odisha) during next five days and isolated heavy rainfall was very likely over west Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha and Chhattisgarh on July 10 & 11.”
