photoA low pressure area is brewing in the southeast Bay of Bengal and may develop into a depression or deep depression during the next two to three day. This might lead to a cyclonic storm touching land from the east coast, bringing rain.
Day or the maximum temperature in Delhi will continue to remain above 39.5 degrees Celsius, which is the average day temperature in May. The weather will continue to be dry for the next few days. Chances of rain in Delhi and over the rest of northwest plains are unlikely during the next two days. However, the minimum temperature in Delhi will see stability, as winds will blow from north during morning hours. Maximum temperatures for the rest of the country will remain above 40 degrees Celsius except in the extreme south, east and northeast India. Rain is expected in these parts during the next two days.
A western disturbance will move out of Jammu and Kashmir, resulting in reduced rainfall there as well as in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand during the next two days. These regions will also see a rise in day temperatures as the cloud cover disappears.
Central India and east Uttar Pradesh will continue to remain very hot . Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh recorded 46.5 degrees Celsius on Sunday. The maximum temperature in central India will remain in the lower 40s.
Rain is expected at many places in West Bengal and Sikkim and at one or two places in Bihar and Jharkhand in the coming two days. A trough of low pressure runs from east Uttar Pradesh to south Tamil Nadu across Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha in Maharashtra and interior Karnataka. A cyclonic circulation over Assam and Meghalaya is also affecting these places. Moist winds in these parts are coming from the Bay of Bengal. Northeast states will have light to moderate rain at many places while one or two places could have heavy rain as well during the period.
The weather over south India is being affected by winds from both the west and east coasts. Northwesterly and southeasterly winds are meeting to create a wind discontinuity in adjoining areas of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. This meeting of winds will give rain at one or two places during the next 48 hours.
