IMD "forecast"

The much awaited IMD forecast is out. All and sundry waited, for this crucial announcement, while millions of farmers depend on an accurate estimate.

IMD forecast turned out like a deflated baloon.Vague hazy unclear and too general.Its a1959 type frcst.not region specific at all.
With super computers, and other facilities, we expected a more specific forecast.Which region of the country's vast areas will be deficient? Or which will be surplus? This IMD forecast means, if say, Gujarat is -10%, and sa, Karnataka is +10%, the prediction is correct. But what about the drought in the deficit region??
The country is too vast to give such a generalised estimate!
The irony: Next forecast straight in June now !
