Pune, 28th May 2024: The speed of monsoon winds has slowed down over the last few hours, with minimal progress since Sunday, May 26. Despite this, weather experts assure that the monsoon rains will still arrive in Kerala on time, and further progress will proceed as scheduled.

Madhavan Rajeevan, former secretary of the Ministry of Earth Sciences, noted on the social media platform X that the monsoon wind speed has decreased. As a result, it is anticipated that North India may experience heat waves in June. Rajeevan’s message has sparked a new discussion among meteorologists regarding the progress of seasonal winds.

“While the monsoon winds have slowed, there is no cause for concern. The monsoon rains are expected to arrive in Kerala as planned, and their subsequent advance will follow the usual schedule,” Rajeevan stated.

Retired scientist of the IMD, Dr. Anupam Kashyapi, said, “Due to Cyclone Remal, the vapor over the Bay of Bengal has been pushed towards Bangladesh and West Bengal. Therefore, the progress of the Bengal branch of the monsoon has somewhat slowed down. The southwesterly monsoon winds from the Mascarene Islands have also decreased slightly. As a result, the advance of monsoon winds has slowed down. However, monsoon winds will enter Kerala on time, and their further movement will also be as per schedule.”
