The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has released its April weather forecast. According to weather department, the north, west, and central areas of India are most likely to experience extreme heatwaves in the month of April, while isolated showers and winds are most likely to occur in the south and northeast India.

The meteorological agency tweeted on Sunday, "Heatwave spell predicted to extend over south Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh over next five days and across Gujarat, Jharkhand, and Madhya Pradesh over next three days."

It further said that squally weather might hit the Southeast Bay of Bengal and the South Andaman Sea on April 5 and 6, with wind speeds reaching 40-50 kmph with gusts up to 60 kmph.

"Around April 7, 2022, a low-pressure region is expected to form over the Southeast Bay of Bengal. On April 5 and 6, isolated severe rainfall is expected throughout the Andaman and Nicobar Islands "it added.

IMD Prediction for April First Week

Under the influence of a north-south trough from East India and strong southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal to northeastern states at lower tropospheric levels, fairly widespread to widespread light/moderate rainfall with thunderstorm/lightning is very likely over northeastern states (Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, and Meghalaya, as well as Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura) most days of the week.

On April 3 and 4, isolated heavy rain is expected in Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, and Sikkim.

The influence of a trough/wind discontinuity over south Peninsular India will result in light to moderate isolated/scattered rainfall over Kerala-Mahe, Tamil Nadu-Puducherry-Karaikal, and South Interior Karnataka on most days of the week, according to the IMD.

IMD Rainfall Forecast for April 7-13, 2022

Due to trough/wind discontinuity over the southern peninsula of India, light/moderate isolated to scattered rainfall along with thunderstorms is likely over south peninsular India during most days of the week.

Due to a trough over northeast India and strong southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal at lower tropospheric levels, the MeT department has projected light to moderate scattered to fairly widespread rainfall with thunderstorm activity throughout northeast India for many days this week.

Overall, rainfall activity is expected to be above average in south peninsular India, including the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and near normal in many regions of northeast India.

Maximum temperatures are unlikely to fluctuate much in most regions of the nation when compared to week 1.
