In absence of pre-Monsoon rains, most parts of India are reeling under severe heat wave conditions. Day maximums across Northwest and Central India are settling in the range of 44 to 47 degrees.
During the next 24 hours, heat wave to severe heat wave conditions continue to wreak havoc over Vidarbha, Madhya Pradesh, Madhya Maharashtra and Marathwada and parts of Rajasthan. Few parts of North Rajasthan, pockets of Delhi and Punjab, West Uttar Pradesh and Haryana too would be under the grip of intense heat wave. However, isolated rains might occur over the southern districts of Chhattisgarh such as Jagdalpur and adjoining areas.
Moving on to East and Northeast India, it is the only region to record some pre-Monsoon rains, particularly northeastern states. Now, an east-west trough is extending from Uttar Pradesh to West Bengal. Also, south-westerly winds from Bay of Bengal are also feeding moisture to the northeastern states. With this, rains are expected to increase over northeastern states of the country especially over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim, Assam and Meghalaya.
While in East India, light rain at one or two places might occur over the northeastern parts of Bihar and scattered rain and thundershowers over the southern districts of Odisha.
Meanwhile, weather of East Uttar Pradesh, parts of Bihar, Jharkhand and Gangetic West Bengal would be dry and hot. Not to forget, heat wave conditions are also expected at isolated pockets of Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha.
Down South, a north-south trough is extending from Central India to South Interior Karnataka across Telangana and Rayalaseema. Thus, isolated heavy spells will be a sight in South Interior Karnataka including Bengaluru and adjoining parts of Interior Tamil Nadu. Heavy rains are a possibility over Lakshadweep and Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
Scattered light to moderate rains is also possible over Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and parts of Tamil Nadu and isolated rains will be seen over Rayalaseema and Coastal Karnataka. Telangana will be almost dry and hot.
