The local Met office said the monsoons are likely to reach Odisha coast in the second week of June. The announcement brought relief to farmers eagerly waiting for the start of the wet season that is crucial for their crops.
While temperatures continued to remain high in western parts of Odisha, severe humid conditions made life miserable in the coastal region.
“We don’t foresee any El Nino impact in the first month of the monsoon season,” said B.P. Yadav, head of the National Weather Forecasting Centre at IMD in New Delhi.
Weather officials on Friday confirmed the monsoon’s onset — an announcement that takes into account rainfall measured at weather stations in Kerala and westerly wind speeds.
