5-Day Nationwide Weather Forecast

A cyclonic circulation will produce isolated snow/rain over Arunachal Pradesh and the adjoining area. This activity will show a modest increase in its intensity towards the weekend. Overall, precipitation of up to 35-50 mm is likely for the next five days. A feeble western disturbance is set to affect the weather across the Western Himalayan region (WHR) from Tuesday. Under its influence, isolated to scattered rainfall/snowfall with isolated thunderstorm/lightning are likely over Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit, Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand on March 3, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted. Further, it has also issued a yellow watch over the WHR of Wednesday.

The snow/rain will subside on Friday but increase once again from Saturday due to another disturbance following directly. That second successive system is expected to cause scattered to fairly widespread rainfall/snowfall activity over the region during March 6-8, with maximum intensity on March 7.

Meanwhile, isolated to scattered rainfall with peak thunderstorm/lightning is very likely over Northeast India during the next 4-5 days. Accordingly, the IMD has issued a yellow watch over the region for this forecast period. As for temperatures, above-average maximums are expected across the western half of the country. Odisha will, similarly, see above-average maximums with a possibility of over 40°C in a few spots on Tuesday. Some areas of the Konkan coast will also see over 40°C maximums from Tuesday to Friday. Overnight minimums will be warmer than normal across much of the country during this forecast period, with the exception of Deccan Plateau, where the temperatures will remain normal or slightly cooler.
