The mean rainfall is the long-term mean value of the yearly rainfall (over land and time) in the state. Rainfall is understood as any type of groundwater that comes out of a cloud as a fluid or solids.
Most of Myanmar's yearly rainfall comes from the southwest monsoons from mid-May to mid-October. The month of July is generally considered to be the time of the highest rainfall in the whole state. Most rainfall between 100 and 200 inch per year is registered in Rakhine State, part of Kachin State, Kayin State and the Tanintharyi coast, which includes part of Mon State, while rainfall in the dry zone is less than 40 inch per year and in other parts of Myanmar between 40 and 80 inch per year during the rainy season.
While the arid zone, which accounts for over 40% of all arable land, is susceptible to lack of humidity even during the rainy period, the large irrigations in the Mangway divisions have partially alleviated the disadvantages in the area.
southwest monsoons are the major cause of Myanmar's rainfall, but easterly winds and depression in the Gulf of Thailand often cause postal monsoons, which sometimes delay the harvest of paddy and in some anomalous years even cause significant harvest loss in the fields.

Pakokku in the Magwe region and Yamethin in the Mandalay region posted record rainfall of 135 millimeters (5.35 inches) and 113 mm (4.45 inches) in the 24 hour period until 9:30 a.m. on September 5, according to a September 5 section meteorological brief.
Pakokku's past peak was 5.08 inch (129 mm) in 1998, while Yamethin's peak was 4.17 inch (106 mm) in 1974, in a 24-hour time frame. One DMH officer said that a low water area in the Bay of Bengal that emerged on September 4 was causing severe rainfall in CMB and Rakhine State.
"There have been severe rains in key areas of the land and in the states of Kachin and Rakhine due to a low water area in the cove and the effects of the retreat of the tsunami. It is not to be anticipated that the low-pressure sector will become more depressed, but that more precipitation will be generated in key areas.
He said: "People should beware of the danger of torrential floods and the effect of torrential rains on transport operations. However, the inhabitants of Pakokku said that the strong rains were welcome after a long drought and that there had been no serious adverse impacts. It rained heavily for two whole day.
This is only the third rainy period in the entire period of the month and it has provided some comfort from the heat," said U Aung Kyaw Moe from Pakokku. "We need to cultivate maize, seeds and peas with storm water so that the rains bring luck to the farmers," said Dr Thet Lwin, another Pakokku-dweller.
Meanwhile, the Ministry reports that rainfall was above normal in the states of Kachin, Rakhine, Kayin and Mon and in the Ayeyarwady, Bago, Yangon and Tanintharyi areas, while all other states and areas had below-market rainfall. Both Kayin and Rakhine States and Tanintharyi Territory were receiving about 20 inches ( (508mm) above mean, while Ayeyarwady and Yangon Territories were receiving 15 inches (.381mm) more than the mean during the mid-monsoon spe-cee. which will run from July 1 to the end of August.
