April 24, 2019 7:40 PM |

Down South, a Low-Pressure area has developed in Southeast Bay of Bengal which is expected to intensify into a depression in next two days and would move in West/Northwest direction towards Tamil Nadu. Models are also indicating towards strengthening into the season’s first cyclonic storm by early next week.

Meanwhile, a trough is extending from Comorin area to North Interior Karnataka across Kerala. Therefore, scattered rain and thundershower activities are possible over Kerala and isolated activities will be seen over South Interior Karnataka and Interior Tamil Nadu.

Up in the North, a fresh Western Disturbance is seen over North Jammu and Kashmir with its induced Cyclonic Circulation over Northwest Rajasthan and adjoining areas. Thus, we expect light to moderate Pre-Monsoon rain and thundershowers at many places of Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh and at few places of Uttarakhand.

Isolated rainfall is also a possibility over the foothills of Punjab, Haryana and West Uttar Pradesh. The national territory, Delhi would battle heat wave, mercury soaring beyond 44-degree mark. While, dust storm activities accompanied with light rain activities might occur at few places of West and Northwest Rajasthan like Sri Ganganagar, Hanumangarh, Jaisalmer, Bikaner and Churu.

While in Central India, with unabated hot northwesterly winds, heat wave conditions would persist at few places of Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha and isolated places of East Rajasthan and Gujarat.

Heading towards East and Northeast, a Cyclonic Circulation is seen over South Assam and adjoining parts. A feeble trough is extending from Northeast Bihar to West Bengal. Therefore, we expect light rain and thundershowers at few places of Sub Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim and at one or two places of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya. Whereas, weather of Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal would be dry.
