Slow South-west withdrawal

This year, there was an unusual delay in the withdrawal of monsoon from extreme west Rajasthan, due to the prevalence of cyclonic circulations, availability of moisture and sporadic rainfall over the region. However, the southwest monsoon withdrew from western parts of Rajasthan and some parts of Punjab and Haryana on 30th September. The normal date of withdrawal from west Rajasthan is 15th September. During the period 1960-2006, the most delayed date of monsoon withdrawal from extreme west Rajasthan was 28th September, which occurred in the years 1964 & 1970. In the year 1990 also the withdrawal started as late as 27th September.
