  In India the onset of the Southwest Monsoon Rainfall over Kerala Coast and its advance over the country is considered of great importance to the economy of the country as it involves the rainfall. The success or failure of crops, irrigation projects, hydroelectric power generation, drinking water supply, etc. in any given year is closely linked with the behaviour of the Southwest Monsoon Rainfall. Thus, everybody is anxious to know the date of onset of Southwest Monsoon over Kerala Coast and its progress and thus the quantum of rain with the start of warm summer month of May. India Meteorological Department (IMD) issues every year several types of weather forecasts. One such is long range Southwest Monsoon onset and rainfall forecasts.
