To begin with North India, the feeble Western Disturbance lies over Jammu and Kashmir. Thus, light rain will affect over isolated places in the higher reaches of Jammu and Kashmir, East Himachal Pradesh and North Uttarakhand. Weather in Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh will remain dry.

Moving to East/Northeast India, a cyclonic circulation is seen over central parts of Assam and a trough is extending from this system to Jharkhand across Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Bihar.
