Weather Forecast May 17: More rain in Punjab, Haryana, Kashmir, Himachal, hot weather in Central India

May 16, 2019 8:45 PM |

A Western Disturbance can be seen over Jammu and Kashmir, while its induced Cyclonic Circulation is over North Rajasthan and adjoining states of Punjab and Haryana. Now we expect rain and thundershower activity to increase over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Snowfall is also possible over upper reaches. Scattered rain and thundershower is expected to continue over Punjab, while isolated rains will be seen over Haryana and Rajasthan. Thundery activity or light rains may occur at one or two places over Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh but chances are less.

Coming onto East India, a Cyclonic Circulation can be seen over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim. Also, humid southwesterly winds from Bay of Bengal are also increasing moisture over the region. Apart from this a trough is extending from Sub-Himalayan West Bengal to South India across Odisha. The combination of these systems will bring along light to moderate rain over Northeast India and Sub-Himalayan West Bengal. Isolated rain activity will continue over East Bihar, Gangetic West Bengal and Coastal Odisha. Weather of Jharkhand and East Uttar Pradesh will remain dry with a partly cloudy sky.

Weather over Central India will remain dry and hot. The ongoing rains over Odisha will now come to an end paving way for above normal temperatures. Heat wave is likely to continue at a few places over Vidarbha. Also, the temperatures of Chhattisgarh, South Madhya Pradesh and Madhya Maharashtra will remain above normal by two to three degree Celsius.

Talking about South India, here a trough is extending via Telangana, interior Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Therefore, rains and thundershower will continue over Kerala, interior Tamil Nadu, South Interior Karnataka including Bengaluru, and at one or two places over Coastal Andhra Pradesh. Weather of Telangana and North Interior Karnataka, however, will remain dry and hot.
