New Delhi. The withdrawal of Southwest Monsoon from the country is set to be delayed due to the cyclonic circulation over the Bay of Bengal due to Super Cyclone Noru. Due to this, there is a possibility of rain in parts of Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, East Rajasthan, Delhi and Haryana from October 5. The officers provided this information.
It also said that the north and north-west regions of the country received six per cent more rainfall than normal in September this time due to the south-west monsoon, which helped in reducing the rainfall deficit in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand. The country received good monsoon rains for the fourth consecutive year. It is expected that the late withdrawal of monsoon from the Gangetic plains will prove to be helpful for the farmers during the Rabi season.
