June 2015 S W Monsoons - All India Performance - Not Bad, Not Bad!

Monsoon rains in June 2015 have belied the fears of the negative effect of El Nino and late onset, to finally end the month with an excess rainfall of +16% overall for India!

13 Subdivisions had excess rainfall, 20 subdivisions had normal rainfalls and only 2 subdivisions on the sub-continent - Bihar and Tripura, Nagaland and Manipur had deficient rains along with Andaman Islands.

Sub division wise rainfall is given in detail in these charts and graph from

Interestingly, while Goa state had -13% deficient rains in June, Konkan subdivision along with Goa together had +14% rains during the same period. This was mainly due to the heavy rains received by North Konkan around June 22, due to the effect of the deep depression off the Mumbai coast, which eventually crossed overland at Diu.

Let us see if this momentum continues in July, or whether the effects of El Nino begin to be felt.
