According to the IMD’s daily weather bulletin, the showers are likely to grow more intense in these regions after July 26. Isolated extremely heavy rainfall is likely over Assam and Meghalaya on July 28, the weather bureau predicted on Friday.

This bout of heavy rain has been brought on by a monsoon trough, which is likely to shift very close to the foothills of the Himalayas in the next two days. Further, cyclonic circulations over Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, and western Afghanistan have also contributed to the meteorological conditions that is being witnessed in the northern part of India.

While moderate showers are expected in northwest India till July 26, the intensity and distribution of rainfall is predicted to steadily increase after two days, IMD said. Meanwhile, isolated to scattered rainfall is likely over South and West India from July 29 onwards.

Moderate to severe thunderstorms and lightning are also predicted in parts of Madhya Pradesh, Madhya Maharashtra, Marathwada, Rajasthan, and Jharkhand on Friday.

Squally weather, with wind speeds of 40-50 kmph, will persist over the southeast Arabian sea, Lakshadweep-Maldives and along and off Kerala-Karnataka-south Maharashtra coasts. IMD has warned fishermen not to venture into the water in these areas.
