Dry air dominance persists over NW India. As the Western Disturbance also remains weak, the dry air is strengthened and is getting pushed into central parts of the country. Due to this reason, South West Monsoon withdrawal is likely to begin from NW India in the next few days and will rapidly approach North and Central parts of the country. This is likely to increase the deficit of monsoon rains. Monsoon Axis is likely to come down in latitude and merge with the secondary branch and run through Uttar Pradesh and thence South Eastwards to East-Central Bay of Bengal. Heavy rainfall likely to continue at many places in NE States, West Bengal, Odisha, North Coastal Andhra Pradesh in the next 24 hours.
A trough running from Rayalaseema to Gulf of Mannar at 1.5 km above mean sea level persists. Under this influence heavy rainfall is forecasted in isolated places over Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Kerala, Coastal and South Interior Karnataka and in one or two places over Rayalaseema.
