June 17, 2019 7:47 PM |

Cyclone Vayu has weakened into a Low-Pressure Area and is now lying over the Kutch region. Due to this, light to moderate rain and thundershower activities are expected over many parts of Gujarat and adjoining South Rajasthan. Also, moderate rain with one or two heavy spells over Konkan and Goa cannot be ruled out. Scattered rains also may occur over West Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. Whereas, the weather of Vidarbha and Marathwada will be almost dry.

In the East, a Cyclonic Circulation is over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining Bangladesh. Humid winds from the Bay of Bengal are also blowing across Northeast India. Therefore, we expect moderate to heavy rains over Manipur, Mizoram, and Nagaland. Whereas, light to moderate rains will be a sight over the rest of Northeast India, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim and Odisha.
Places in East Bihar like Purnea, Supaul, and Kishanganj might get to see light rains. While Gangetic West Bengal and Jharkhand will be almost dry. With this, heat wave conditions will continue to persist in isolated pockets of Bihar.

Heading to North, a Western Disturbance is over the eastern parts of Jammu and Kashmir and is now moving away. Along with this, a Cyclonic Circulation is over Haryana and adjoining areas. Scattered light to moderate rain and thundershowers will continue over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Whereas, dust storm and thundershowers are likely to be seen at few places of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan. In wake of weather activities, temperatures are expected to remain below normal over most of the Northwest Plains.

Finally, down South, a trough can be seen extending from Gujarat to Coastal Karnataka. Thus, light to moderate rain with one or two heavy spells will be a sight over Coastal Karnataka with scattered light to moderate rains to continue over Kerala and Coastal Andhra Pradesh.
Rayalaseema, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and Interior Karnataka might see isolated rains. While Andaman and Nicobar Islands stands a chance to record moderate to heavy rains.
