The southwest monsoon will continue to be active over various parts of the country, including key agricultural states in central and northwestern parts, for the next five days.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said rainfall with isolated heavy showers is expected over Maharashtra between Wednesday and Friday in particular.
There is more good news on the monsoon front: A low pressure system is forming over the northwest and adjacent west-central Bay of Bengal, off southern Odisha and northern Andhra Pradesh. The depression will move west across South Odisha and South Chhattisgarh.
“A trough runs from the cyclone circulation associated with the low-pressure area south-east from Uttar Pradesh via Odisha and Chhattisgarh at lower tropospheric levels,” said the national weather forecaster.
These developments will result in fairly widespread precipitation/thunderstorms and lightning, with heavy rains over the Ganges-West Bengal through Thursday and over Odisha and Jharkhand through Friday.

In the south, a similar weather pattern is likely to be observed over the coast of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and northern Karnataka through Wednesday and over Tamil Nadu through Thursday. Coastal and southern inland Karnataka will experience heavy rains on Friday and Saturday, while Kerala will see precipitation through Saturday.
Central India, east of Madhya Pradesh, is likely to have light to moderate fairly widespread rains/thunderstorms and lightning through Saturday, with isolated heavy rains through Saturday, as is Vidarbha. The pattern is likely to be repeated in western Madhya Pradesh.
In the western parts, the monsoon could overcast with light to moderate, fairly extensive rainfall over Marathwada through Friday, over Madhya Maharashtra through Saturday, and in Gujarat through Friday.
A similar pattern will also emerge in the northeastern parts, particularly Assam and Meghalaya, through Saturday.
