The Meteorological Department in Gujarat has warned of severe rains in the next two days. Following this period, there will be a reduction in the intensity of rainfall, but some areas may still experience heavy rains, according to MET.
Saurashtra and North Gujarat are expected to receive heavy rain today, including regions such as Gir Somnath, Amreli, Rajkot, Junagadh, and Ahmedabad, as stated by the department.
The monsoon season is currently in its advanced stage and active across the country, with several states expected to receive substantial rainfall in the coming days, according to the Indian weather department.
On Thursday, heavy rainfall in Navsari caused waterlogging in various parts of the region.
Senior scientist Naresh Kumar from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) mentioned, “The monsoon is in its advanced stage and is active. We can observe clouds over Konkan, Goa, Central India, and the Northeastern states.”
Kumar highlighted the movement of a low-pressure area from the northwest bay to the central part of north Madhya Pradesh, which could result in heavy to very heavy rainfall in Madhya Pradesh over the next two days. He also noted that strong winds are expected along the west coast due to the prevailing low-pressure conditions.
The IMD predicted heavy rainfall in east and northeast India over the next five days, driven by moisture-laden winds from the Bay of Bengal.
The weather forecast indicates heavy rainfall in East Rajasthan until July 3, as well as in Uttarakhand and West Rajasthan on June 29 and 30.
Konkan, Goa, and the Ghat areas of Madhya Maharashtra are likely to experience widespread rainfall throughout the week, with isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall. Central India can expect scattered to fairly widespread rainfall until July 5.
South India is expected to receive fairly widespread to widespread rainfall, with heavy rainfall predicted in Kerala, Coastal and South Interior Karnataka, Coastal Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu on specific dates within the week.
Residents are advised to stay updated with weather bulletins, take necessary precautions, and follow instructions from local authorities to ensure their safety during the monsoon season.
