Summary of the forecast for the next five days:

Five-day precipitation accumulation

(TWC Met Team)

The influence of southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal over eastern and northeast India in the lower tropospheric levels resulted in scattered to fairly widespread rainfall with isolated thunderstorms, lightning and gusty of winds (speed reaching 40-50 km/h) very likely to hit Bihar, Jharkhand, Gangetic West Bengal and Odisha over the next 4-5 days.

As a result, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a ‘orange warning’ for parts of West Bengal on Tuesday, which advises residents to “be prepared”. The other regions mentioned above are placed under ‘yellow watch’ status to ‘be updated’.

Southwesterly winds also have a likelihood of bringing fairly widespread to widespread rains over northeast India, sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim over the next five days. It could also be accompanied by isolated thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds over the region for the next 24 hours. It is also very likely that we will experience isolated heavy rains over Arunachal Pradesh on Tuesday, and over Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura until Wednesday.

The IMD predicted that the heatwave conditions are expected to ease in most parts of the country from today.

A westerly disturbance in the form of troughs in the mid- and upper-tropospheric westerly winds will likely result in the following weather events:

  • Scattered to fairly widespread light to moderate rain accompanied by isolated thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds over Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit, Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand May 3-6;
  • Isolated hailstorms over Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand on Tuesday and Wednesday;
  • Isolated light rain accompanied by dust storms, thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan over the next two days.

A trough over peninsular India in the lower tropospheric levels is also likely to cause isolated to scattered rainfall with thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds over Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana over the next five days, as well as isolated heavy rains over Kerala and Mahé on Wednesday.

A cyclonic circulation is likely to form over the southern Andaman Sea and vicinity by Wednesday, and will continue to develop over the next three days. It is likely to cause the following weather events:

  • Heavy rain in isolated places on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands on Thursday, and isolated heavy to very heavy rain on Friday and Saturday;
  • Squally winds (speed reaching 40-50 km/h with gusts to 60 km/h) over the southern and northern Andaman Sea and the central-eastern Bay of Bengal on May 4 and 5;
  • Squall winds (speed reaching 50-60 km/h gusting to 70 km/h) over the Andaman Sea and adjoining the east-central and south-eastern Bay of Bengal on 6 and 7 May.

Anglers are advised not to venture into these areas.
