Even though there was an 11% shortfall in June, it’s looking like this year’s monsoon might end up in the ‘above normal’ range with the IMD predicting good rainfall in the upcoming three months of the season. It’s positive news for agriculture and water resources if the rainfall stays above normal.

IMD chief, Mrutyunjay Mohapatra, mentioned that in 20 out of 25 years when June rainfall was below normal, July rainfall turned out to be normal or above normal. Similarly, in 17 out of 25 years, when June rainfall was below normal, the overall southwest monsoon rainfall for the season was normal or above normal. This data suggests a good chance of ‘above normal’ seasonal rainfall, especially when La Nina is a significant factor. It’s interesting how looking at past patterns can give us clues about what to expect in the future.

Northwest India experienced a mean temperature of 31.73 degrees Celsius in June, which is 1.65 degrees Celsius above normal and the highest recorded since 1901. Additionally, the monthly average maximum temperature in that region was 38.02 degrees Celsius, exceeding normal by 1.96 degrees Celsius and marking the highest temperature since 1901.
