The Northeast monsoon for 2017 could be indifferent and insufficient, but I request people of south India especially Tamilnadu that from March, 2017 ‘The excess pre-monsoon rainfall and a Good southwest monsoon rainfall should be effectively saved and used for the rest of the year.
Moreover like 2017, in 2018 also a short burst of rainfall during last week of January, 2018 and early rainfall from the third week of February2018 till first week of April, 2018 will be of some relief. But very HARSH summer is forecast for the period between 11th April, 2018 and the last week of June, 2018.
The south west monsoon for the year 2018 will begin sluggishly during 3rd week of June, 2018. But from the last week of June, 2018 rapid changes will take place and the southwest monsoon will be very aggressive and widespread to give ‘The Best rainfall till 3rd week of August, 2018.
From the last week of August, 2018 till last week of September, 2018 more cyclone related weather condition will prevail. From first week of October, 2018 till end of January, 2019 unending rainfall will cause immense hardship to the southern states in particular Tamilnadu.
In order to plan disaster management and to reduce damages due to cyclone and floods my detailed Weather forecast for the Year 2018/19 will be released before 30th April, 2017. I am confident this will definitely help the government as well the people to realize the advantage of VEDIC METEOROLOGY.
