India’s changing monsoon trend: 

The alteration in weather patterns and its impact on the crops and food security can be accessed by overviewing at the trends of the past 15 years, today, and maximum 15 days into the future. Due to the warming of the surface of the Arabian sea which has reached a depth of 100 m, there could be an impact on the monsoon in India and could lead to the favourable conditions of cyclonic storms. In 2019, 5 cyclones were recorded in the Arabian Sea. The onset of Northwest monsoon is affected due to the delay in the withdrawal of Southwest monsoon.
