The Indian Meteorological Department has declared that Southwest Monsoon, reached Kerala today, which is 3 days prior its scheduled time. The sudden arrival of monsoon is going to be beneficial for the farmers, as it is responsible for 70% of water that the country requires to grow and sustain the humongous amount of crops. However, North India is going to continue experiencing the heat wave all across the region. The weather conditions in West Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Chandigarh and Delhi have not improved and severe heat still persists. The parameters for Monsoon are as such: The IMD department is going to announce that it has reached Kerala, if, Minicoy, Amini, Thiruvananthapuram, Punalur, Kollam, Allapuzha, Kottayam, Kochi, Thrissur, Kozhikode, Thalassery, Kannur, Kudulu and Mangalore report rainfall up to 2.5 mm for two days straight. IMD has already altered Rajasthan of a heat alert today.

Another rule that can be used to test if Monsoon has arrived is of the westerly winds are 15,000 feet above main sea level and  long-wave radiation are less than 200 wm-2 (watt per square metre).

MD Monsoon Director General K.J. Ramesh had said last month that we could expect 97 percent, and a long period of rainfall. A warning for Thunderstorm and hail has been issued in various parts of Uttarakhand Dehradun, Pauri, Uttarkashi, Chamoli, Rudraprayag, Nainital, Almora, Bageshwar, Champawat and Pithoragarh. Dehdradhun also experienced rainfall, which is surely going to bring for the people who have been experiencing the sweltering heat. The Met department also tweeted a graphical representation depicting how the monsoon is going to ascend in across the nation.
