After a “normal” June, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Friday predicted “normal to above normal” rainfall over some parts of north and central India and most parts of the south peninsula.

The IMD also said “normal to below normal” rainfall is most likely over most parts of east and northeast India, areas adjacent to east-central India, and some portions of west south peninsular India.

Monthly rainfall for July 2022 over the country is most likely to be normal, i.e., between 94 and 106% of the Long Period Average (LPA).

Despite tremendous disparities in the rainfall received region-wise, excess in the northeast and dry in the northwest, India, as a whole, registered “normal” rainfall in the month of June.

The IMD forecast for temperatures in July said, “normal to above normal” maximum temperatures are likely over most parts of the country, except for some parts of the Himalayan foothills and peninsular India, where “below normal” maximum temperatures are likely.

“Normal to above normal minimum temperatures are likely over most parts of the country except over parts of west, northeast, and peninsular India where ‘below normal’ minimum temperatures are likely.”
