Despite an 11% shortfall in June, the Indian monsoon is expected to conclude above normal, according to IMD. Historically, when June rainfall was below normal, subsequent months often saw normal or above normal rainfall. IMD predicts relief from high temperatures in northwest India due to anticipated good rainfall in July. However, the region faced unusually high temperatures in June. The summer of 2023 marked the highest number of heat wave days since 2010, with June alone witnessing the highest in 15 years.
