IMD predicts showers across country due pressure conditions in Arabian sea and Bay of Bengal
Owing to cyclonic circulation in the Arabian Sea and persisting anti-cyclone conditions over the Bay of Bengal, several parts of the country are likely to receive light, moderate and heavy showers along with thunderstorms in next 48 hours. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has also predicted scattered rains and thunderstorms in Jammu and Kashmir, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Sikkim, Manipur, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura.
Most parts of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Jharkhand have remained gloomy and nights nippy in the past few days. The IMD has issued a fresh warning to fishermen across Indian coastal states against venturing out into the sea as there could be widespread rains along with thunderstorms. Jammu and Kashmir will see the formation of mountain snow due to the fresh western disturbance. Also, though feeble, the cyclonic circulation over Assam is likely to contribute to mountain snow and thunderstorms in northern India.
Regions that will be affected due to these developing weather conditions include, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Puducherry, Goa Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, and Andaman and the Nicobar Islands. Apart from this, the weather experts state that another low-pressure area could develop off the coast of northern Tamil Nadu or southern Andhra Pradesh in the coming week.
