It said that five districts viz. Una, Hamirpur, Kangra, Kullu and Mandi of the state received normal rainfall. District Una received the highest rainfall with 27% more rainfall than the normal. District Kangra received the highest rainfall with 666 mm, which is 14% more than the normal rainfall.
Seven districts received rainfall below normal i.e. deficient or scanty. District L & Spiti received the least rainfall with 95% less rainfall than normal. Individual station also received less precipitation in the month of July.
Probably the state received less, especially over the northern part of the state, because of the reason that monsoon trough line did not shift to the northern side from its normal position. The normal position of monsoon trough line generally passes from Ganganager to Kolkata via Agra, Allahabad.
