India's southwest monsoon, which had experienced a two-week delay, is expected to gain momentum over the upcoming weekend, providing much-needed rainfall to the central, western, and northern regions, as stated by the India Meteorological Department (IMD). The delay has resulted in a significant 33% shortfall in June's rainfall nationwide, with certain areas experiencing a staggering 94% deficit. Traditionally, by June 25, the monsoon's western branch would have made substantial progress into Gujarat. However, this year, Cyclone Biparjoy hindered its advancement by absorbing all available moisture from the Konkan coast.

June plays a crucial role in the monsoon season, contributing around 16-17% of the overall rainfall, particularly important for the agricultural sector. Farmers typically commence sowing kharif crops during this period following the monsoon's onset, with sowing activities occurring in June and July, varying according to regional climates.
