April 27, 2019 7:58 PM |

Beginning with South India, the Deep Depression has further intensified into a Cyclonic Storm Fani and lies over Southeast Bay of Bengal. It is likely to intensify into a Severe Cyclonic Storm during next 24 hours. This system would give moderate to heavy rain and thundershowers with strong winds over Andaman and Nicobar Islands. This system would move in northwest direction and head towards Tamil Nadu coast and reach the region by April 30. It would then re-curve from there and start moving in North/Northeast direction.

Also, an upper air trough is extending from East Madhya Pradesh to Kerala across Vidarbha and Karnataka. Due to this weather system, light to moderate rain and thundershowers would be affecting some places in Kerala and South Coastal Karnataka while isolated activities will be seen in Tamil Nadu.

The warm and moist southeasterly winds would be affecting Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Hence, places like Machilipatnam, Kakinada, Vishakhapatnam and Khammam would see light pre-Monsoon rain and thundershowers. Whereas, isolated pockets of Telangana would see heat wave conditions.

Heading towards East and Northeast India, a Cyclonic Circulation is over Sub Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim and its adjoining region. An upper air trough is extending from this system up to Odisha across Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal. Due to the presence of these weather systems, light to moderate rain and thundershowers would be affecting many places in northeastern states like Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Assam and Nagaland. It would also be affecting some places in West Bengal like Jalpaiguri, Siliguri, Bankura and Purulia. Isolated activities can be witnessed in Koraput, Malkangiri and Rayagada in Odisha. Isolated pockets of Jharkhand might witness heat wave conditions.

Up in North, a feeble Western Disturbance as an upper air trough lies over north of Jammu and Kashmir. Hence, light rain might affect the upper reaches of Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh. Its induced Cyclonic Circulation is over West Rajasthan. Due to the system, isolated dust storm activity with strong winds might affect the western parts of Rajasthan like Bikaner, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Pali. Also, heat wave and heat wave type conditions would be affecting South Haryana, some parts of Delhi and South Uttar Pradesh.

Lastly, in Central India, dry and hot weather conditions would continue here. Heat wave conditions will be prevalent across rest parts of Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Vidarbha and North Maharashtra.
