Clouds hovering over the sky in many parts of Jharkhand today indicate that the Southwest Monsoon has further advanced.

Indra Bhagwan, the Hindu God of Gods associated with the sky, lightning, weather, thunder, storms, rains, river flows, and war, may bless the state to cover the rain deficit.

According to IMD's daily bulletin, the Southwest Monsoon has advanced into some more parts of Karnataka, Telangana, and the remaining parts of Andhra Pradesh; some parts of Vidarbha, Chhattisgarh, remaining parts of Northwest Bay of Bengal, and remaining parts of Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal; and some more parts of Jharkhand and Bihar and some parts of East Uttar Pradesh on June 23.

“Conditions are favourable for further advance of Southwest Monsoon over some more parts of Chhattisgarh, remaining parts of Jharkhand & Bihar, some parts of East Madhya Pradesh, some more parts of Uttar Pradesh and some parts of Uttarakhand during next 2 days,” the last bulletin read.

The delay in monsoon resulted in a rainfall deficit for some of the Southern states, and thus more rainfall is expected as the southwest monsoon continues to make its way across the states, IMD said earlier.

Odisha is expected to receive heavy to very heavy rainfall till June 26, while heavy rainfall is likely over Bihar and Arunachal Pradesh today.

In northwest India, Uttarakhand & Himachal Pradesh is likely to receive heavy to very heavy rainfall till June 27, and bouts of heavy rainfall over Uttar Pradesh from June 24-26.
