The 'VERY SEVERE CYCLONIC STROM [VSCS]' PHET enabled SWM winds to attain the maximum northern limit of monsoon. [Even the phraseology VSCS is changed after Orissa Super cyclone in 1999.] This will help monsoon wind to blow anywhere once the PHET ceased to exist. This will lead to more variability of rainfall in space and time. At this rate Kerala and Karnataka may NOT get their due share for the month of June (or even the rest of monsoon period). It is true that each year the SWM is different and no two SWM pattern is unique. After all it is RAINFALL that the monsoon's activity and strength is measured as VIGOROUS, ACTIVE, NORMAL OR WEAK.
