New Delhi: Even though the country got relief from the heat after the onset of monsoon, the scorching heat of last month's June had made life miserable for everyone. At some places, the situation was such that people were avoiding going out not only in the afternoon but also in the evening. In Delhi, the mercury had gone up to 47-48 degrees for four-five days. In such a situation, now the Meteorological Department has released a report on the heat of last month. In which they said that this year's June month has been the hottest month in North-West India since the year 1901.

Temperatures in northwest India also remained above average in June

IMD chief Mrityunjay Mahapatra said that the average temperature in North-West India in June was recorded at 31.73 degrees Celsius which is 1.65 degrees Celsius more than normal. This is the highest since the year 1901. Along with this, he also explained the reason for 33 percent less rainfall in Northeast India in the month of June. He said that the monsoon has progressed at a slow pace in the northern and eastern parts of the country, so there was less rainfall in Northeast India in the month of June.

There was 11 percent less rainfall in June

The Meteorological Department said that in the first month of monsoon, June, the country received 11 percent less rainfall than normal. However, this rainfall is more than the rainfall in the last five years. According to IMD, 147.2 mm rainfall was recorded across the country in June. Normal rainfall is 165.3 mm. There was less rainfall than normal on 16 days in June. There was a shortage of rain from 11 to 27 June. The maximum shortage was 33 percent in North West India. After this, there was 14 percent less rainfall in Central India and 13 percent less rainfall in East and North East India. There was 14 percent more rainfall in South India. The official said that due to the absence of active western disturbance during the period from 10 to 19 June, the weather remained dry in North West and Central India and heat wave lasted for a long time. He said that only three western disturbances (5 to 10 June, 19 to 25 June and 26 to 28 June) were seen in North India. Whereas normally four to five western disturbances come.

July may see above average rainfall

According to the Meteorological Department, there is a possibility of heavy rains across the country in July. According to IMD, this rain may be more than the average rainfall. The Meteorological Department official said that in the month of July, most parts of the country are likely to receive more than normal rainfall except many parts of Northeast India and some parts of North-West, East and South-East Peninsular India.
