Monsoon 2020 exits from India

The southwest monsoon withdrew fully from the country on Wednesday, marking its most delayed exit in the past four years. This was also the second most delayed monsoon exit since 1975. The monsoon simultaneously exited parts of Maharashtra, including Pune and Mumbai, India Meteorological Department officials said.

Private forecaster Skymet said the withdrawal of the southwest monsoon was halted by more than two weeks due to weather systems moving across states like Odisha, AP, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Gujarat, causing inclement rains.
