The month ended with 33% deficiency which translates to around 67 per cent of the Long Period Average (LPA). "Monsoon was deficient in June," said Mritunjay Mohapatra, additional director general, IMD. Several parts of the country have been witnessing drought-like situation. The Central Water Commission data revealed that as on June 27, of the 91 major reservoirs in the country, 62 water bodies reported 80 per cent or below normal storage.

Anything below 90 per cent of the LPA is considered "deficient". Rainfall in the range of 90-96 per cent is considered "below normal" and "normal" when it is between 96-104 of the LPA.



Precipitation in the range of 104-110 per cent of the LPA is considered "above normal" and "excess" when it is beyond 110 per cent of the LPA. In 2018, June recorded rainfall with 95 per cent of the LPA. The situation was better in 2017 which saw rainfall of 104 per cent of the LPA. June 2016 recorded 89 per cent of the LPA while June 2015 recorded 116 per cent of rainfall, which falls under the "excess" category.
