The arrival of Monsoon in India two weeks in advance
June 16, 2008 9:42pm CST
Is arrival of monsoon in India another indication of the effects of glabal warming? There are similar unseasonal climate incidents in America and Australia taking place. The monsoon arrived this time in advance despite the temperature being less than normal, though the perception is that monsoon arrives with as much speed as the rise in temperatures. This advance has broken the record set a century ago.

Hi jasbir, i was unknow that the monsoon has hit india in advance. I was thinking that if the monsoon was in advance then it will go in advance. my mom said that if the rain has come early then it will go soon and it may happnes that it will rain more not at all.. flood or dried earth.

Hi yogeshdhusa. Your mom is right in a way. People do say that if it comes early, then it goes early. It is one of the most unpredictable wheather phenomenon in the world. It causes floods in some parts of India and in some it totally fails resulting in draught. Pray to God that it rains well (not too well though), it will make things easier for everyone. There would be less power cuts. The crops would be bumper, and there would be some brake on the inflation.
