Weather update: Check out state-wise heatwave, storm and rainfall forecast for April

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 4 April 2022, 12:46 IST

The Indian weather department has issued a weather report for the month of April. As maintained by the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the northern, western, and central areas of the country are most likely to experience extreme heatwaves in April, while isolated raifalls and winds are most likely to take place in the south and northeast India.

The IMD tweeted on Sunday, "Heatwave spell predicted to extend over south Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh over next five days and across Gujarat, Jharkhand, and Madhya Pradesh over next three days."

Furthermore, the weather agency said that stormy weather might hit the Southeast Bay of Bengal and the South Andaman Sea on 5th and 6th April, with wind speeds reaching up to 40-50 kmph with gusts up to 60 kmph.

"Around April 7, 2022, a low-pressure region is expected to form over the Southeast Bay of Bengal. On April 5 and 6, isolated severe rainfall is expected throughout the Andaman and Nicobar Islands "IMD added.

IMD prediction for April first week:

Under the influence of a north-south trough from East India and strong southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal to northeastern states at lower tropospheric levels, fairly widespread to widespread light/moderate rainfall with thunderstorm/lightning is very likely over northeastern states (Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, and Meghalaya, as well as Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura) most days of the week.

On 3rd and 4th April, isolated heavy rainfall is anticipated in the state of Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, and Sikkim.

The impact of a trough/wind discontinuity over south Peninsular India will result in light to moderate isolated/scattered rainfall over Kerala-Mahe, Tamil Nadu-Puducherry-Karaikal, and South Interior Karnataka on most days of the week, IMD said.

IMD rainfall forecast for April:

Because of the trough/wind discontinuity across he southern peninsula of India, light/moderate isolated to scattered shower along with thunderstorms is likely over south peninsular India during most days of the week.

Due to a trough over northeast India and strong southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal at lower tropospheric levels, the MeT has forecasted light to moderate scattered to fairly widespread rainfall with thunderstorm activity in every part of northeast India for many days this week.

Taking everything into account, rainfall activity is predicted to be more than average in south peninsular India, which includes the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and near normal in many regions of northeast India.

Maximum temperatures are improbable to shift much in the regions of the country when in comparison to first week.
