Forecast summary for the next five days:

Five Day Precipitation Acccumulation

(TWC Met Team)

The influence of monsoonal westerly winds from the Arabian Sea over southern peninsular India is likely to result in squally weather (wind speed 40-60 kmph) over the following areas:

  • Over Southeast Arabian Sea along-and-off Kerala coast and Lakshadweep, Comorin area and the Gulf of Mannar on Wednesday
  • Over Southwest Arabian Sea during the next five days
  • Over the Southeast Bay of Bengal, adjoining south Andaman Sea, Southwest Bay of Bengal, Gulf of Mannar and south Tamil Nadu coast during June 2-4. Fishermen are advised not to venture into these areas.

Southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal to Northeast India are very likely to strengthen from Thursday. Under its influence, rainfall activity is likely to increase over Northeast India from Wednesday with widespread rainfall with isolated heavy to very heavy falls very likely over Assam, Meghalaya, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim from Thursday to Saturday. It is also likely to result in isolated heavy rainfall over Mizoram and Tripura till Thursday, and over Arunachal Pradesh till Saturday.

Accordingly, the India Meteorological Department has placed many of the South, East and Northeast states under a ‘yellow alert‘, advising its residents to be updated on the weather situation.

A fresh western disturbance seen as a trough along with an east-west trough that runs from Haryana to Bangladesh is likely to cause isolated to scattered rainfall over Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh during the next three days.
