Mumbai (Commodities Control) - Conditions may turn favourable for withdrawal of the South-West monsoon from extreme North-West India next week (September 11-17), according to Mrutyunjay Mohapatra, Director-General, India Meteorological Department (IMD).

The ongoing week (September 4-10) would likely see the country as a whole receive less rainfall as compared to the previous week. But an increase in rainfall is indicated over the foothills of the Himalayas and the adjoining northern plains (normally a sign of a weakened monsoon), and the South Peninsula, while deficient rainfall is likely the outcome over EastCentral India the North-East.

Week two (September 11-17) may witness further decrease in rainfall over the country as a whole, though excess rainfall is indicated for the North-East as well as the South-West Peninsula (Kerala-Coastal Karnataka). The central and the North-West may see deficient rainfall as the region braces for withdrawal of the monsoon.

But during the third week (September 18-24), the country as a whole will switch back to a regime of increased rainfall while the last week (September 25-October 1) is likely to see normal to slightly above rainfall. So, though they may plateau during the first two weeks, the rains will recover their mojo during the last two weeks, ending the season in a flourish.

The seasonal surplus stands reduced from 10% at the end of a rainy August into the first week of September.
