Top Weather Updates: Heavy’ Rainfall Alert in Multiple States; Flash-Flood Risk Persists in Himachal

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a new weather warning for the next five days, indicating that several states, including Maharashtra, Gujarat, Odisha, and the flood-affected Himachal Pradesh, will continue to experience heavy monsoon rains without any relief in sight. 

The ongoing monsoon season has caused widespread damage and disruption in these regions, and the IMD’s forecast signals the continuation of adverse weather conditions. Authorities and residents in these states are urged to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to mitigate the impact of heavy rainfall.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has attributed the ongoing heavy monsoon rains to a cyclonic circulation over northwest Madhya Pradesh and its surrounding area, as well as the formation of a low-pressure area (LOPAR) over the Bay of Bengal off Odisha’s coast. These weather systems are responsible for the persistent rainfall in the affected states.

Here are the IMD’s latest weather predictions:
