Despite the scorching temperatures, a significant shift in weather patterns is anticipated across various regions starting today. The IMD predicts scattered to widespread light to moderate rainfall and thunderstorms in West Bengal and Sikkim. This rainfall, expected to last until May 12, will be accompanied by lightning and gusty winds of 40-50 km/h. In Gangetic West Bengal and Jharkhand, wind speeds may reach up to 50-60 km/h.

Isolated heavy rainfall is also on the cards for Gangetic West Bengal and Odisha during this period, with similar conditions likely in the northeastern states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura.

Western and Central India

In central India, a cyclonic circulation over Madhya Maharashtra and a trough from northwest Rajasthan to west Vidarbha are influencing weather patterns. This influence is causing isolated to scattered rainfall, thunderstorms, and gusty winds (40-50 km/h) in Vidarbha, Madhya Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, and parts of Madhya Pradesh. Additionally, hailstorm activity is a possibility in parts of Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh, and Vidarbha on May 10.

Weather Forecast for North India

In the northern parts of India, a Western Disturbance as a trough in the middle tropospheric westerlies has brought about rainfall and thunderstorms to Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. While some areas may see relief from the heat, hot and humid weather is likely to persist in isolated pockets along the coastal areas of Gujarat for the next five days. Heatwave conditions may continue in isolated pockets over West Rajasthan.
