India Monsoon Rains 4% Above Average

Rains in India will start subsiding in the next two days, the weather department said Thursday, calming concerns of crop damage due to the monsoon lasting longer than usual.

The monsoon usually starts subsiding in the first week of September, but the season has been prolonged by about two weeks this year. A late surge in rainfall has pushed this season’s rains 4% above the 50-year average.

The weather department considers rains ranging from 96% to 104% of the 50-year average as “normal.”
