The vulnerability of driving systems, an update from the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) indicated.

Heavy to very heavy rain

Heavy to very heavy rains with heavy precipitation have been reported from Konkan & Goa. At the same time, it is very heavy over the plains and hills of West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya, Madhya Maharashtra, West Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat and heavy over Uttarakhand, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Tripura, Kerala and coastal Karnataka.

rain bearing systems

The main rain-bearing system over northern India in the form of the east-west basin of northwest Rajasthan remains but its eastern end is not submerged into the Bay of Bengal. Instead, it lay in rugged Nagaland, depriving itself of direct moisture nourishment from the waters of the bay. To the west, the trough lies offshore from Maharashtra to Kerala. The line-up from southern Gujarat to Kerala indicates active monsoon conditions, which was the case until Wednesday.

Continues ‘low’ over MP North

Another atmospheric feature that oversees precipitation is the area of ​​low pressure over the central parts of northern Madhya Pradesh. It lies in the lower part to the east and west and efficiently deals with the feeding of moisture from the Gulf in the east and the Arabian Sea in the west. The “low” will continue to run away using available remaining moisture in the atmosphere, but it could be strengthened by a cycle likely to form in Visakhapatnam Bay in the next few days.

More precipitation forecast

Weakness with rain regimes will not prevent these ripening monsoons from being at their best locally along the western coast and adjacent ghats, and the Himalayan foothills along Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, except in the northeastern states and parts of the southern peninsula.

The IMD predicted widespread light to moderate light to widespread rain for northwest India over the next three days. Isolated heavy rains are likely over eastern Rajasthan through Monday and over Uttarakhand and western Rajasthan on Friday. Over central India, it will be light to moderate to somewhat widespread to widely isolated heavy to very heavy falls over Madhya Pradesh for two days.

In the east, it is expected to spread to somewhat light to moderate rains with heavy to very heavy precipitation for the hills of West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh over the next five days. It will be severely isolated over the plains if it is West Bengal on Friday, and Bihar on Friday and Monday.
