Here is our current weather forecast for India
Nationwide 5-day forecast
The northern limit of the southwest monsoon has suspended its advance, leaving behind parts of Rajasthan, western Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and Punjab. Hence, further penetration of the southwest monsoon into the remaining parts of Rajasthan, West Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and Punjab is likely to be slow as large-scale features are not favorable. In addition, the wind patterns predicted by the numerical models do not show favorable conditions for continued rainfall over the region during the forecast period.
There is cyclonic circulation over Bihar. The system is likely to trigger fairly extensive rainfall or extensive rainfall over East India with some locally heavy showers for the next five days. According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the wind convergence and monsoonal east and southeast winds are likely to bring fairly widespread rainfall over Odisha, West Bengal and Sikkim, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Bihar for the next five days.
In some places in Odisha, in southern West Bengal and in Sikkim, there may be occasional heavy rains over the next five days. Heavy rains are also forecast over Chhattisgarh on June 24th and 25th and over Bihar on June 26th and 27th.
The southwest winds stop on the eastern flank of the circulation and bring moist air from the Bay of Bengal to northeast India. There are also possibilities of amplifying wet southwest winds which could cause fairly extensive to widespread rainfall over northeast India over the next 5 days.
Therefore, for the remainder of this week and into the next week, persistent rainfall with some heavy rain is to be expected over the region. Over Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Tripura, Mizoram in the next five days and over Arunachal Pradesh on June 25th, isolated heavy rains are possible – a situation similar to a flood.
On the Konkan and Malabar coasts, however, it can also rain between Sunday and Monday.
Maximum temperatures in Central and East India will be 2 Â° C to 8 Â° C cooler than normal or even lower in some parts of Uttar Pradesh for the next few days. In the meantime, the minimum overnight stays in central and eastern India will remain on the cooler side for the remainder of this week.
