Here’s our latest weather outlook for India
5-Day Nationwide Forecast
The western end of the monsoon trough lies close to the foothills of the Himalayas and the eastern end is near its normal position. The western end of the monsoon trough is very likely to remain north of its normal position during the next 4 days.
At the northeastern end, strong lower-level southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal will blow into Northeast India during the next 2 days.
Further, a cyclonic circulation lies over interior Odisha and neighbourhood, and a north-south trough runs from this cyclonic circulation to north Tamil Nadu at lower tropospheric levels. Another cyclonic circulation also lies over west-central Bay of Bengal, off north Andhra Pradesh coast in mid & upper tropospheric levels.
Moreover, another cyclonic circulation is likely to form over west-central and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal around August 15, and may lead to the formation of a low-pressure area over the same region during the subsequent 48 hours.
Under the influence of the above systems:
(i) The current spell of widespread rainfall activity with isolated heavy to very heavy falls is very likely to continue over Northeast India and Sub-Himalayan West Bengal & Sikkim on August 14, and reduce thereafter.
(ii) Scattered to fairly widespread rainfall with isolated heavy falls will continue over East Uttar Pradesh and Bihar on August 14, and reduce thereafter.

Subdued rainfall is very likely over the rest of the country.
