Several parts of India likely to receive rainfall soon: IMD
Several parts of the country are likely to receive rainfall in next five days due to different cyclonic circulations, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Monday. The IMD said that isolated heavy rainfall is also likely over the south and ghat areas of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Maharashtra, coastal and south interior Karnataka from April 14 to April 16. Here are more details.
No significant change in maximum temperature for next few days
"Due to thunderstorm activities over most parts of the country, no significant change in maximum temperatures are likely over most parts of the country during next 4-5 days," the IMD said.
Cyclonic circulation lies over southwest MP and neighboring areas
According to the National Weather Forecasting Centre of the IMD, under the influence of trough and cyclonic circulations over the south peninsula, scattered to fairly widespread rainfall with a thunderstorm, lightning and gusty winds of 30-40 kilometer per hour are very likely over southwest peninsular India in the next five days. Another cyclonic circulation lies over southwest Madhya Pradesh and neighboring areas.
Cyclonic circulation to affect MP, Vidarbha, Telangana, Odisha
Under cyclonic circulation's influence, isolated rainfall with thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds (30-40 kmph) is very likely over Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Gangetic West Bengal, and Odisha during four-five days and over Jharkhand during next 24 hours. The IMD said that a fresh active western disturbance is very likely to affect the western Himalayan region from April 14 to April 17.
Western disturbance to cause rainfall over western Himalayan region
The western disturbance is very likely to cause scattered to fairly widespread rainfall with the thunderstorm, lightning, and gusty winds during April 14 to April 17 over the western Himalayan region. The western disturbance is also likely to cause light, isolated to scattered rainfall with the thunderstorm, lightning, and gusty winds (30-40 kmph) over adjoining plains from April 15 to April 17.
Isolated hailstorms likely in the north
Isolated hailstorms are also likely over Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit-Baltistan and Muzaffarabad, and Himachal Pradesh on April 14 to April 16. "Thunderstorm/dust storms at isolated places are also likely over west Rajasthan on April 14 and April 15," the IMD said.
