Thursday, August 4: Whereas the northern and northwestern components of the nation have made a moist begin to August, the monsoon exercise over the areas is now set to accentuate, with heavy showers on their horizons for the latter half of this week.

As per the India Meteorological Division (IMD), pretty widespread to widespread rains, thunderstorms and lightning are very seemingly over Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and East Rajasthan through the subsequent 5 days — from Thursday to subsequent Monday, August 4-8.

Remoted heavy falls (64.5 mm-115.5 mm) could lash West Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and East Rajasthan from Thursday to Sunday (August 4-7), Himachal Pradesh from Friday to Monday (August 5-8), and West Rajasthan on Sunday and Monday (August 7-8).

Moreover, remoted very heavy rains (115.5 mm-204 mm) have been forecast over Uttarakhand for the subsequent 24 hours and throughout East Rajasthan from Saturday to Monday (August 6-8).

Accordingly, each Uttarakhand and East Rajasthan will probably be positioned on an orange alert (‘be ready’ for tough climate) for the aforementioned time frames. The remainder of the states and UTs will stay on a yellow watch (‘bear in mind’ of native climate scenario) throughout this five-day forecast interval.

This spike in rainfall exercise will probably be attributable to the monsoon trough and a number of embedded cyclonic circulations, and the heavy rains’ impression will probably be most notable alongside the northern fringe of the trough, The Climate Channel’s met crew has indicated.

Actually, this recent rain spell began impacting North and Northwest India from Wednesday (August 3) onwards. Previously 24 hours, the IMD has noticed rainfall and thunderstorms at a couple of locations in East Uttar Pradesh and at remoted places in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.

So far as the seasonal precipitation is anxious, the rainfall exercise throughout the area has diversified thus far this monsoon. Between June 1 and August 3, the states and UTs within the area have recorded the next rain figures:

Extra rainfall: Rajasthan (337.7 mm), Haryana (267.6 mm)
