Jaipur, Jun 7: The southwest monsoon would touch Mumbai during next 48 hours and will enter Rajasthan three-four days ahead of schedule, IMD said here today.



 “The normal timing of the arrival of monsoon in Rajasthan is third week of June but this year, it is expected to hit three-four days in advance,” DG of Indian Meteorological Department, Laxman Singh Rathor said here today.  Due to adequate humidity, the speed of the monsoon is normal, he said.

IMD had predicted in April normal monsoon with overall 98 per cent rainfall in the country this year.  A detailed prediction will be made next week, Rathor said.  For better weather predictions, IMD will install doplar radars in Kota, Jaisalmer and Sriganganagar in the state, he said.

Rathor said IMD is planning to provide weather forecast service for farmers at block level with the cooperation of agriculture department of the state.
