Extremely heavy rain is likely over many places in coastal and south interior Karnataka on Friday, India Meteorological Department (IMD) has warned.
IMD is expecting heavy rains in peninsular India for the next three-four days due to these favourable conditions.
The western end of the monsoon trough is feeble and runs over Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, and Nagaland on Wednesday morning.
Furthermore, Coastal Karnataka and Kerala are especially prone to experiencing heavy to very heavy rainfall at isolated places on Thursday and Friday, with the IMD also hinting at the possibility of moderate thunderstorms and lightning at isolated areas of the two states on Thursday.
The Central Water Commission (CWC) adds that the dams in Cauvery and Krishna Basins are already at or very near to full reservoir levels. Therefore, with a fresh heavy rain spell on the horizon, a close watch is to be maintained in and around these areas.
However, this year IMD’s extended range forecast shows extensive and heavy rains along the west coast between September 11 and 24 and then until October 1 over several parts of central India.
