March 15, 2019 8:29 PM |

Beginning with North India, in the absence of any weather system, cold northwesterly winds will continue over the region. With this, minimums will remain below normal over most parts of Jammu-Kashmir, Himachal, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, West UP and North Rajasthan. However, day will remain clear and sunny leading to increase in day maximums.

In East India, rain activities are set to increase, as a trough is extending from Gangetic West Bengal up to Karnataka passing through Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Vidarbha. Light to moderate rain and thundershower with one or two heavy spells are possible over Gangetic West Bengal, Jharkhand and North Odisha. Light rain may occur over southern districts of Bihar.

Cities such as Kolkata, Bankura, Midnapore, Jamshedpur, Ranchi, Daltonganj, Baripada, Sambalpur and Jharsuguda are set to witness good showers along with lightning strikes and hailstorm.

In Northeast India, a Cyclonic Circulation can be seen over East Assam, that would give scattered rains over Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and parts of Nagaland.

Moving to Central India, the same trough will bring along scattered rain and thundershower activities over Chhattisgarh, Vidarbha and adjoining parts of Southeast Madhya Pradesh. Places like Nagpur, Gondia, Wardha and Mandla may see some weather activities. Meanwhile, weather of South Rajasthan, Gujarat, West Madhya Pradesh and most parts of Maharashtra will remain dry. Minimums may drop over most places.
