A well marked low pressure area is over Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha and is expected to shift towards West Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Rajasthan.
Thus, during the next 24 hours, Gujarat which is already reeling under flood conditions is expected to see hefty rains and some respite is expected only after that.
During the next 48 hours, West Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan may see flooding rains. In fact, Southeast Rajasthan along with the arid regions of West Rajasthan including Barmer, Jaisalmer and Phalodi may see heavy rainfall activity.
Following this, a system is waiting in the wings over the North Bay of Bengal. In fact, a cyclogenesis is seen which will turn into a cyclonic circulation during the next 24 hours. This system will become more organized, concentrating into a well marked low pressure area around July 20-21 and move westward towards the central parts of the country. The system is expected to be stronger than the present one.
Along with the weather systems coming from the Bay of Bengal, the Monsoon trough has also been playing its role in enhancing the Monsoon current.
The system will follow a slightly more northerly track around July 22 and result in heavy rains over states of Odisha, West Bengal and Jharkhand. During this time, Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Uttar Pradesh may also witness flooding rainfall. Areas of Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, and West Bengal have not seen spells of very heavy rains and some areas almost remain parched.
Thus, residents of these areas need to remain cautious for the upcoming flooding conditions over the aforementioned parts.
