If inferred correctly this would mean that in 2017 as per WRMS could be lower than the of 887 millimetres. The agency would come up with further forecast later during the year.

It said that the evolution of ENSO from a cool phase to warm phase (El Nino) is likely to have a moderately negative impact on the south-west precipitation over different regions of the country.

Monday, said that 2017 is likely to 'below normal' across the country at 95 per cent of the (LPA).

The state-run India Meteorological Department (IMD) is expected to come out with its first official forecast of 2017 south-west next month.

said that the south-west could make a strong start in June, but could dwindle thereafter as starts making its impact.
