The wettest January until now has been in 1921 with 141.two mm. The region has been given as substantially as two-thirds of the average rains for the very first 6 months of the 12 months now.

Tamil Nadu been given 959 per cent much more than the ordinary, when it was 746 per cent for Puducherry. The over-all rain surplus for the country as a full, during the very first two months of January (January 1 to 13), is at 95 per cent with North-West India and the South Peninsula remaining runaway beneficiaries. Central India, way too, has accomplished reasonably very well when East and North-East has drawn practically nil rain during the period.

An extended forecast by the IMD for the future two months indicates that the region would continue to be largely dry during the week from January 22-28 but ordinary to previously mentioned ordinary rain would return during the subsequent two months (January 29 to February four and February five-11). A number of worldwide designs are also suggesting the exact same, with an unlikely small-strain region thrown in for superior measure.
