IMD Forecasts Heavy Rainfall in Western, Northeastern India, Heatwave Alert in Northwest, East

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued forecasts for heavy rainfall and heatwave conditions across India. Western and Northeastern states are expected to experience significant rainfall, while parts of Northwest and Eastern India will face heatwave conditions.

Over Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Telangana, and Goa, “very heavy” rainfall is predicted until June 12, with a gradual decrease afterward. Extremely heavy rainfall is also forecast for parts of West Bengal and Sikkim, while Assam and Meghalaya are likely to receive very heavy rainfall for the next 3-4 days.

On the other hand, a severe heatwave alert has been issued for parts of Northwest and Eastern India, including Gangetic West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, and Odisha. These regions are expected to experience heatwave to severe heatwave conditions for the next 5 days.

The IMD has attributed the heavy rainfall in Northeastern states to a cyclonic circulation over Northeast Assam and neighborhood. Strong southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal are also contributing to the rainfall in this region. Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, and Sikkim are likely to receive light to moderate rainfall with thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds for the next 7 days, with isolated extremely heavy rainfall possible over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim from June 11-13.

In addition to the heavy rainfall and heatwave forecasts, the IMD has also predicted isolated to scattered light to moderate rainfall over Gangetic West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha, and Chhattisgarh for the next 5 days. These regions are also expected to experience thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds.

The IMD’s forecasts are crucial for disaster preparedness and public safety. Citizens in affected areas are advised to follow weather updates and take necessary precautions to stay safe during these weather events.
