Rainfall data of some town in the Darjeeling- Sikkim Himalayas (Oct2020) - GOING RED ALL THE WAY

The rainfall stats from IMD are shown below:-

The sudden and sharp change from 'Large Surplus' rainfall in Sep2020 to 'Deficient' rainfall in Oct2020 is seen below:

With the numerous storms in the Bay of Bengal in Oct 2020, the withdrawal of the SW Monsoons from this region was delayed.
