In its first long-range forecast for the south-west monsoon, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Monday, 15 April, has predicted that the monsoons will be “near-normal” this year.

The monsoon is likely to be 96 percent of the long period average (LPA), a senior official of the IMD said.

El Nino conditions are expected to weaken as the monsoon progresses, according to IMD.
