A cyclonic circulation/ low pressure is likely to form over West-central and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal after September 5, said India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Thursday.

As per IMD, the monsoon trough lies to the north of normal position and it would continue till September 5.

“It will shift southward thereafter with possible formation of a cyclonic circulation/ low pressure area over West-central and adjoining north-west Bay of Bengal,” said IMD.

The weather agency further said that weak monsoon condition will continue across India till September 5, 2022. However, there will be good rainfall activity over northeast India and subsequently central and north peninsular India will witness enhanced rainfall activities.

While releasing its outlook for rainfall and temperature for September 2022, the IMD predicted normal to below normal maximum temperature over most parts of the country except several parts of east and northeast India, some pockets of central India and northwest India where above normal maximum temperature are likely.

Normal to above normal rainfall is likely over the eastern and southern parts of India during first week of September. Rainfall activity is likely to be above normal over many parts of India except the eastern belt in the second week of this month. The withdrawal of monsoon is unlikely till middle of September, 2022.
