Forecast summary for the next five days

Three Day Precipitation Accumulation

(TWC Met Team)

The off-shore trough running from the Gujarat coast to the Karnataka coast will stall there to produce lasting heavy rain with locally extremely heavy falls along the west coast for several days. The hardest-hit region will be the Maharashtra coast with continuous 50 mm/day rainfall, with a total rainfall amount of 200-300 mm projected during this period.

Cyclonic circulations over Madhya Pradesh and Odisha on Thursday will move westward slowly to produce widespread rain with heavy to very heavy fall over the central highlands and their adjoining areas for several days. The total rainfall amount over these areas will come up to 150-200 mm.

Southeasterly winds flowing along the north edge of the monsoon trough will produce heavy to very heavy rain over the Sub-Himalayan region and its adjoining areas for several days. The rain is likely to increase in intensity and coverage toward the weekend, leading to a total rainfall amount of 150-200 mm.

Maximum temperatures will be warmer than normal across the northern plains and cooler than normal across south Peninsula India.

Minimum temperatures will be near normal across much of India during this period except in the Sub-Himalayan Region and Northeast India, where normal nighttime lows might be significantly warmer than usual.
