On Monday, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) projected extremely heavy rain in numerous Indian states, including Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal. According to the IMD, the eastern end of the monsoon trough is still near to the Himalayan foothills, while the western end is running north of its typical position.
The entire monsoon trough will likely shift near to the Himalayan foothills in the next 24-48 hours, according to the IMD, resulting in a light monsoon spell over India beginning Tuesday.
According to the weather service, Jharkhand will have isolated heavy rain from August 10 to 13, while Gangetic West Bengal will see rain from August 11 to 13.
Meanwhile, in the next four to five days, Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh are expected to see widespread rainfall with isolated strong to very heavy downpours.
Isolated heavy to very heavy rainfalls are expected over the northeast, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, and Sikkim over the next five days.
Rainfall will accelerate in the region beginning Wednesday, influenced by strong southwesterly or southerly winds from the Bay of Bengal. As a result, the IMD predicts isolated exceptionally heavy rains across Assam and Meghalaya from August 11 to 13.
According to the IMD, Uttarakhand will see widespread to widespread rain with isolated heavy showers over the next five days, while Himachal Pradesh will see rain on August 12-13.
According to the IMD, Tamil Nadu will get scattered to widespread rainfall over the next five days, while Kerala will see isolated heavy precipitation over the next three days.
The rest of the plains of northwest India, including Punjab, Haryana, and western Rajasthan, as well as much of peninsular India, including Maharashtra and Gujarat, will see’subdued’ rainfall, according to the IMD.
