Summary of forecasts for the next five days

Three-day precipitation accumulation

(TWC Met Team)

The offshore trough from the Gujarat coast to the Karnataka coast will stagnate there to produce sustained heavy rains with locally extremely heavy falls along the west coast for several days. The hardest hit region will be the coast of Maharashtra with continuous rainfall of 50mm/day, with a total rainfall amount of 200-300mm projected during this period.

Cyclonic circulations over Madhya Pradesh and Odisha on Thursday will move slowly westward to produce widespread rains with heavy to very heavy falls over the central highlands and their adjacent areas for several days. The total amount of precipitation over these areas will amount to 150-200 mm.

Southeasterly winds blowing along the northern edge of the monsoon trough will produce heavy to very heavy rains over the sub-Himalayan region and its adjacent areas for several days. The rain is likely to increase in intensity and coverage towards the weekend, resulting in a total rainfall amount of 150-200mm.

Maximum temperatures will be warmer than normal in the northern plains and cooler than normal in the southern Indian peninsula.

Minimum temperatures will be near normal over much of India during this period, except in the sub-Himalayan region and northeastern India, where normal overnight minimums could be significantly warmer than usually.
