SAN FRANCISCO – March 23, 2019 – CustomWeather, Inc., a specialized provider of high resolution weather forecast and alert services, has issued a Seasonal Climate Forecast for India’s 2019 monsoon season, beginning in May and concluding in October. The overall seasonal forecast for precipitation is mostly average, however, it will not be evenly distributed throughout the season.
The early season forecast will be primarily average for the month of May. In contrast, June is forecast to have a deficit rainfall over large parts of central and northeastern India. As the monsoon progresses into July and August, the outlook becomes more promising, with most regions expecting small rain surpluses. Overall, most areas will end the monsoon season with rainfall totals close to seasonal averages with near-normal to slightly above-normal temperatures.
