    According to a research report, India received 45 percent above-normal rainfall in the week ended June 22. Here's a list of states with excess to deficient precipitation between June 16 and June 22.

    After two weeks of deficit rainfall, India received 45 percent above the normal rainfall during the week ending June 22, 2022, a report said. "The actual rainfall was 63.5 mm against normal of 43.9 mm," the research report said. In the previous two weeks of June, the country had recorded a rain deficit — meaning the actual recorded rain was less than the normal range.
    In the first week of June, the actual rainfall recorded across the country was 14.1 mm against 24.4 mm of normal rainfall. For the week ended June 14, the actual rainfall was 26.5 mm against 34.9 mm normal rains, a report released by research firm B&K Solutions said.
    Coming to the cumulative rainfall recorded this season, it was slightly below the normal range. For the season up to June 22, the cumulative rain was recorded at 105.8 mm against normal of 106.0mm, the report said. It also showed that the "spatial distribution" remained poor across the nation.
    Meanwhile, as per the Indian Meteorological Department data for the period between June 1 to June 24, the country received 115.2mm of rainfall — 4 percent less than the normal, which is 119.9 mm. While only four states received "large excess" rainfall, 14 received almost no rainfall this season.
    The IMD categorises the amount of rainfall received as — large excess, excess, normal, deficient and  large deficient rainfall.
    • Large excess = more than 60 percent of LPA
    • Excess = Between 20 percent to 59 percent of LPA
    • Normal = -19 percent to +19 percent of LPA
    • Deficient= -59 percent to -20 percent of LPA
    • Large deficient = -99 percent to -60 percent of LPA
    • Long period average (LPA) of rainfall is the rainfall recorded over a particular region for a given interval (like month or season) average over a long period like 30 years, 50 years or more.
