Positive Monsoon prospects likely from next week

Initial forecasts show a chance of North East Monsoon setting in later next week. They are subjected to change in any manner. North East Monsoon this year is expected to be on time (15th October to 25th October) Until monsoon sets in, a few isolated heavy showers can be expected over isolated pockets. Coastal areas of the state are likely to remain dry with a slim chance of rains. The interior rainfall season is likely to continue. Places like Coimbatore, Bangalore, Dharmapuri, Chitoor and adjoining Districts are likely to get isolated downpours over the course of the day.
With the persistence of a anti cyclonic circulation over North West India, reduction of moisture levels and rainfall make conditions favourable for commencement of withdrawal of South West Monsoon in the next 2 days.
