Cyclone Mahasen, which ravaged coastal Bangladesh and parts of Myanmar, sucked up moisture in the monsoon winds, leaving them dry.Monsoon watchers expect a strong phase of rainfall in the first week of June after the onset over Kerala, an activity attributed to the wet phase of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) wave that passes over the Indian Ocean during the period.
