According to the National Weather Forecasting Centre of the India Meteorological Department (IMD):

Significant Weather Features

  • The Western Disturbance now seen as a cyclonic circulation over Jammu & Kashmir and neighbourhood at 3.1 km above mean sea level with a trough aloft in mid & upper tropospheric westerlies with its axis at 5.8 km above mean sea level   roughly along longitude 72°E to the north of latitude 32°N and an induced cyclonic circulation lies over West Uttar Pradesh & neighbourhood in lower tropospheric levels. Under the influence of these systems, scattered to fairly widespread rainfall/snowfall with thunderstorm, lightning/gusty winds (speed reaching 30-40 kmph) very likely over Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit, Baltistan & Muzaffarabad, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarkhand during next 24 hours and decrease thereafter.
  • Heat wave conditions very likely in isolated pockets over East Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand during next 48 hours and over West Madhya Pradesh, east Vidarbha, South Uttar Pradesh, East Rajasthan and Bihar during next 24 hours.
  • A trough in westerlies runs roughly along longitude 85°E to the north of latitude 22°N at 2.1 km above mean sea level and a cyclonic circulation lies over Jharkhand & adjoining North Chhattisgarh in lower tropospheric level. It is likely to move eastwards during next 24 hours. These systems supported by moisture incursion from Bay of Bengal in lower tropospheric levels likely to cause:
  1. Scattered to widespread rainfall with thunderstorm, lightning & gusty winds (speed reaching 30-40 kmph) over North East India during 08th -11th April. Thunderstorm, lightning & squall(speed reaching 50-60 kmph) also likely over Assam & Meghalaya on 08th & 09th and over Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram & Tripura on 09th April and isolated heavy rainfall likely over Arunachal Pradesh on 09th & 10th April, 2021.
  2. Isolated to scattered rainfall with thunderstorm, lightning & gusty winds (speed reaching 30-40 kmph) over East India & adjoining Central India during 08th -11th April. Isolated hailstorm also likely over Chhattisgarh on 10th April, 2021.
