Monsoons 2012 have arrived over North Bengal and Sikkim

Overnight, monsoon strikes north

Calcutta, June 6: The monsoon travelled fast and long overnight to cover the whole of the Northeast and parts of north Bengal.
In north Bengal, the monsoon entered Cooch Behar and Jalpaiguri today. Over the next couple of days, there could be further movement of the monsoon flow in the region.
North Bengal, unlike the south, has been receiving regular pre-monsoon showers for the past few days. The top arm of the monsoon flow first strikes north Bengal. Then the flow rises to cover the south as well.
