A well marked low pressure area is over Northwest Jharkhand and adjoining areas. Another low pressure area is over South Uttar Pradesh and adjoining areas. Due to the impact of these systems, Jharkhand has already received torrential rains.
In the past 24 hours from 8:30 am on Saturday, Ranchi recorded 182 mm of rains, highest of the season. Meanwhile, Daltonganj also saw heavy rains of 74 mm. Parts of Madhya Pradesh also recorded heavy showers with Sheopur witnessing 148 mm of rainfall.
For Jharkhand, heavy rains are expected to continue for another 12 hours, thereafter, a reduction in rainfall is quite likely.
Southeast Uttar Pradesh, Northeast Madhya Pradesh, West Madhya Pradesh and East Rajasthan may see heavy to very heavy rains during the next 24 to 48 hours. The possibility of flooding in some of these areas cannot be ruled out.
Currently, western end of Monsoon trough is south of its normal position. Thus, Delhi, Punjab as well as Haryana will also receive some rainfall activity but those showers will not be very heavy in nature.
Thus, it looks like a rainy affair for both North and Central India
