The system is expected to track west northwest across Odisha, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh. In fact, the peripherals of this system are also expected to result in rains over parts of West Bengal, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar along with Vidarbha. East Rajasthan will also see some rainfall activity.
