Weather Today, 27 May 2020: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) Wednesday predicted that the present wave conditions are likely to prevail over the plains of northwest India, Central India and adjoining interior parts of eastern India during the next 24 hours.
In its daily weather forecast, the weather agency predicted that isolated heatwave is likely at many places over Vidarbha during the next 24 hours.

IMD said that isolated heatwave conditions are also likely at Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Marathwada and Madhya Maharashtra over the next 2-3 days.
According to the bulletin, likely rain due to western disturbance on May 28-29 will cause reduction in maximum temperatures over the plains of north India. Maximum temperatures over the plains of north India are expected to recede from May 28 onwards, with substantial reduction in heatwave conditions from May 29.
