Cyclone Sitrang made landfall on the Bangladesh coast around early hours of Tuesday, October 25. It will continue to push up into Meghalaya and Assam while weakening significantly and becoming a low-Pressure area. However, the peak of the heavy-rain threat for the northeastern mountains may occur on Tuesday, October 25.

Rainfall between 50mm and 80 mm is likely to batter Arunachal Pradesh and the adjoining areas, with locally higher amounts of over 200 mm for the next two days. Precipitation is also forecast to fall as snow in far northern Arunachal Pradesh.

Further, with the withdrawal of the southwest monsoon from the entire country, no significant precipitation is forecast in the remaining parts of the country until Friday, October 28. However, isolated showers may occur in the southern tip of the Southern Peninsula. Snowfall is likely over Ladakh on Wednesday and Thursday.

As for the mercury levels during the projection period, maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to remain normal across Delhi-NCR.
