New Delhi, June 26
The not-so-active monsoon 2006, a major cause of worry for farmers of the country, is now expected to enter into active phase and cover Central India, eastern states and east Uttar Pradesh by later this week.

But the most-awaited weather phenomenon will most likely miss its June 29 date with Delhi as the northwest and scientists at the National Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (NCMRWF) have advised farmers of the region to keep sufficient water standing in paddy nurseries to avoid iron deficiency.

The good news, however, is that the NCMRWF scientists are foreseeing a build-up activity to take place in the Bay of Bengal around June 29. A low-pressure area is likely to develop over west-central Bay and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal during June 28 and 29. Also, a cyclonic circulation is also likely over the north Arabian Sea during same period.

Under their influence, an increase in rainfall will take place over eastern states. Moreover, conditions are also now favourable for further advance of monsoon over remaining parts of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Chhattisgarh, many parts of east Uttar Pradesh, south Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh and some parts of west Uttar Pradesh during next five to six days.

Rainfall has been deficient in the second and third week of June. During June 15 to 21, 18 Met sub-divisions reported scanty and eight deficient rainfall. But excess rainfall was reported in central Maharashtra, interior Karnatka, Rayalseema and Tamil Nadu.

The weak trend has been continuing since June 8 even though the monsoon hit the Kerala coast on May 26, five days ahead of its schedule arrival on June 1, this year. The current revived from the Arabian Sea side on June 19 and due to good rainfall activity over central Maharshtra, Marathwada and Vidarbha, northern limit of the monsoon progressed northward on June 23 and 24.

Rainfall was recorded 68 per cent above normal levels in the first week of June and has seen a steady decline in the later weeks. Between June 8 and 14, it was around 46 per cent below the normal. But weather experts now feel that monsoon will advance even if a low pressure area fails to form in the north Arabian Sea.

So far, monsoon has covered south Rajasthan, parts of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Patna in Bihar but is yet to cover eastern Uttar Pradesh.
