The South west monsoon has set over in Kerala on June 5, 2012. The normal range is June 1 for Kerala and if conditions are favorable the SW monsoon hits Belgaum any time between June 5 to June 10. As now there has been a delay of the onset in Kerala, Belgaum would likely to get the monsoon showers by June 10.
Since yesterday(June 5) Belgaum has seen some rainfall and drizzling which are nothing but pre monsoon showers which a very good indicator of the over all setting of the monsoon.
Conditions are favorable for further advance of the southwest Monsoon into some more parts of central Arabian Sea, remaining parts of coastal Karnataka, Goa, some parts of south Konkan, south Madhya Maharashtra and interior Karnataka, some more parts of Tamil Nadu and Bay of Bengal and some parts of north eastern states during next 48 hrs.
