Skymet had earlier predicted that monsoon rains in India were expected to be normal in 2019, raising prospects of higher farm and economic growth in the $2 trillion economy.
There is a more than 50 percent chance that India will get normal rainfall and only a small probability of excessive rainfall, Jatin Singh, chief executive officer at Skymet, said.
India defines average, or normal, rainfall as between 96 per cent and 104 per cent of a 50-year average of 89 cm for the entire four-month season beginning June.
The monsoon season delivers about 70 per cent of India’s annual rainfall and is key to the success of the farm sector in Asia’s third-biggest economy.
