JAMMU, MAR 08
A Western Disturbance will start to affect Northwest India from Tuesday, bringing isolated snow or rain over the Western Himalayan region in the next 3 days, with snow totals adding up to 30 cm in some areas of Ladakh.
Another Western Disturbance is expected to affect Northwest India during the weekend.
To the south, a trough is to produce isolated rains and thunderstorms in some areas of Kerala, Tamil Nadu and adjoining regions through Wednesday, the rainfall activity decreasing after that.
Meanwhile, a cyclonic circulation over South Andaman Sea will generate fairly widespread rains with thunderstorms on Andaman & Nicobar Islands. The system will likely intensify into a well-marked Low-Pressure Area during the next 2 days. It isn’t expected to become as intense as a Depression or more as of now.
Although the system is likely to move westward across the southeast of the Bay of Bengal in the coming days, the rain activity is forecast to remain in this place till Friday.
Due to wind confluence, localized thunderstorms are expected in some areas of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh through Wednesday.
In view of the current forecasts, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a yellow watch over Jammu & Kashmir, Ladakh, East Rajasthan, West Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Marathwada, Madhya Maharashtra, Goa, Konkan, Tamil Nadu and Andaman & Nicobar Islands so people can “be aware” of the thunderstorms, lightning and strong winds.
