Recurving cyclone refers to the change in the direction of Cyclones of West Pacific Ocean from westward to north-eastward. This distracts the westward compression over SW Monsoon and reduces rainfall over Indian Peninsula.
• During the monsoon months, cyclones in the Western Pacific move westwards towards India and aid rain-bearing systems over the sub-continent.
• But during some years they ‘recurve’, or start to swing north-east, and do not give as much of a push to the rains as they do in the good monsoon years.
• This re-curving frequently happens during the El Nino years, but not necessarily.
