    New Delhi: Monsoon conditions may gain strength over Central India and parts of northern plains from Wednesday onwards bringing increased rainfall over some parts, said India Meteorological Department (IMD).

    According to IMD, the monsoon trough which is an area of low pressure associated with rainfall, is very likely to shift southwards and deepen gradually after Wednesday. This would bring fairly widespread rainfall over Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh.

    Part of Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh are also likely to witness significant increase in the rainfall activity, along with some parts of Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Goa.

    At present, the major rainfall activity has been mainly confined to south peninsular India and northeast India. However, the IMD maintained that widespread rainfall with extremely heavy fall would continue over the southern most states of Kerala, Karnataka and adjoining Ghat districts of Tamil Nadu during the next two days due to strong convergence of monsoon westerlies would continue over South India.

    Presence of monsoon trough across Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Assam towards Nagaland is likely to cause widespread rainfall with isolated heavy to very heavy and extremely heavy falls over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh during next two days.

    The southwest monsoon has covered the entire country on 19 July, against its normal date of 15 July, even as the overall deficit across the country remains 19%. As many as 21 out of the total 36 subdivisions including West Uttar Pradesh Delhi, Haryana, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, East Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, parts of Maharashtra are reeling under a deficit of up to 59%.
