In its bulletin, IMD has also predicted strong convergence of monsoon westerlies are likely to continue over the southernmost states of Kerala, Karnataka and some districts of Tamil Nadu during next 48 hours causing widespread heavy to very heavy and extremely heavy rains during the period.

Nagaland is likely to cause widespread heavy to very heavy and extremely heavy rainfalls over sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya, and Arunachal Pradesh during next 48 hours.

The monsoon trough is very likely to shift southwards from its current position and deepen gradually from 24 July. In this scenario, the rainfall activity is very likely to increase over central India, adjoining northern parts of peninsular India and also along the northern plains from 24 July for the subsequent 3-4 days.

Hence, fairly widespread heavy rainfalls are likely over Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi, Punjab, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, and Goa during this period.
