J&K to witness heavy rainfall from June-September: IMD

Jammu and Kashmir will get the highest overall rainfall during the June-September period and July will be the wettest month, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted, according to a media report.
According to the IMD, the north-west India — Punjab, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Delhi and western Uttar pradesh — will get the highest overall rainfall during the June-September period and July will be the wettest month, reported The Times of India.
“The north-east India is expected to get least rainfall (below normal) during the period,” said the report.
“Prediction on 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,” the report on weather said.
