IMD predicts rainfall from June-Sept in J&K

Srinagar

A day after declaring the arrival of the rainy season in the country, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Wednesday predicted that Jammu and Kashmir will get the highest overall rainfall during the June-September period and July will be the wettest month.

Apart from the state of Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi and western Uttar Pradesh will also get the highest overall rainfall.

North-East India is expected to get the least rainfall (below normal) during the period.

Prediction on the distribution of rainfall (month wise and region wise) assumes significance in view of planning Kharif sowing operations (timing and choice of crops) during the monsoon season
