Weather Forecast for May 17: Probable depression in Bay of Bengal brings heavy rain in Tamil Nadu

May 16, 2016 6:40 PM |


The weather system in the Bay of Bengal is travelling very fast and thus, it will develop only into a mild cyclonic storm, if at all.

The well-marked low pressure area over Sri Lanka and adjoining Gulf of Mannar is expected to intensify into a depression within 48 hours.

In view of this weather system, many districts of South and Coastal Tamil Nadu and South Kerala will receive good rains. Rest of Kerala, South Interior Karnataka and Coastal Karnataka will also receive some rainfall during next 24 to 36 hours. Due to prominence of this weather system, other features in the Peninsular India have become weak.

Going up, no significant weather activity is likely over central parts of India. Heatwave will continue to prevail over many parts of Vidarbha, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. Isolated pockets of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and South Uttar Pradesh will also witness heatwave conditions.

A cyclonic circulation is seen over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and adjoining West Assam. Fairly widespread light to moderate rains likely over Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Mizoram and Nagaland. Scattered rains are expected over Gangetic West Bengal, Jharkhand, Odisha and Coastal Andhra Pradesh.

A feeble Western Disturbance will bring scattered pre-Monsoon activity over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Delhi is getting hotter by the day. We cannot rule heatwave conditions in few pockets.

Temperatures will remain way above normal over many places of Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi.
