Normal monsoon this year, IMD predicts

The Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) said India is likely to see normal monsoons in 2020 raising expectations of higher farm output in Asia’s third-biggest economy.

“This year we will have a normal monsoon. Quantitatively the monsoon rainfall, during the monsoon season 2020, is expected to be 100% of its long period average with an error of +5 or -5% due to model error,” said Madhavan Rajeevan, Secretary, MoES.

The state-run weather agency IMD defines average, or normal, rainfall as between 96%and 104% of a 50-year average of 88 centimetres for the entire four-month season beginning June. Dailyhunt
