Kerala has started witnessing fairly widespread good rainfall as we inch closer towards Southwest Monsoon. Both the intensity and spread of rain is on increasing trend all along the West Coast and parts of Peninsular India.
Parts of Karnataka, Konkan & Goa including Mumbai, Tamil Nadu, and Rayalaseema are likely to witness light to moderate showers on Friday. However intensity will be more over Kerala.
All these conditions are instrumental towards the possible onset of Monsoon in next couple of days.
A fresh Western Disturbance is approaching the hilly states which is likely to start affecting by May 28.
It has already induced a cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan and adjoining Punjab. A trough is also extending from this system up to Bihar across Indo-Gangetic plains.
With this, we can expect isolated thunderstorm or dust storm on Friday over parts of North Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
Another trough is running from Bihar up to South Odisha across Jharkhand. Hence, we can also expect scattered rain and thundershowers along the trough line including parts of Chhattisgarh and Kolkata.
Northeast India will also continue with light to moderate rain and thundershowers, with isolated heavy spell.
Meanwhile heatwave conditions have abated from most parts of the country barring parts of Telangana and Odisha. Similar weather conditions will continue on Friday as well.
