India: Official Pre-Monsoon Conditions Forecast

On April 1, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) issued its temperature outlook for April to June 2018. This is when temperatures climb before the onset of the Southwest Monsoon. The forecast indicates warmer than normal temperatures in north and northwestern India and normal to slightly below normal temperatures for eastern, east-central and southern parts of India. Monsoon progress, reservoir levels and pre-monsoon showers deserve monitoring to assess India’s 2018/19 Kharif potential.
