India received 47% more rain than normal in October, India Meteorological Department notified, and further adds that “the country is likely to get 23% more rainfall than normal in November." As per reports, within the first fortnight of October, multiple favourable weather systems brought 82.5 mm of rainfall over the country, 88%  above the Long Period Average (LPA).

Earlier, the weather office said that the much awaited northeast monsoon commenced over Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh on Saturday, while a week before that southwest monsoon withdrew from the entire country on Sunday, a week later than normal.

India witnessed a normal monsoon season for the fourth consecutive year with 925 mm rainfall which was 106 per cent of the long-period average (LPA) of 880 mm.

"The Southwest Monsoon has withdrawn from the remaining parts of the country today, October 23, 2022," the India Meteorological Department said on Sunday.
