IMD forecasts heavy rainfall in various parts of India

Many parts of the country were drenched with heavy rainfall. Continuous rainfall disrupted the day-to-day activities of people. Several train services including local trains and long-distance services have been cancelled in Maharasthra due to heavy rains. Tracks got damaged at some places due to landslides.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicted rainfall for various regions, especially from western and central India for the next two to three days. It issued an orange and red alert for these areas.

It issued an orange alert for Maharashtra’s East Vidarbha region. An orange alert means authorities should be prepared for heavy to very heavy rainfall.  However, a red alert has been issued for Mumbai. It indicates the chance of extreme rainfall here and authorities should take action. Thunderstorms are predicted with lightning and gusty winds in many places across the country.

North India also witnesses heavy rainfall. But, the intensity of rainfall over the northern region is expected to decrease after 24 hours. Hence, places like Delhi may witness light to moderate rainfall in the next 24 hours. However, rainfall may increase from July 25 here.

Also, many other parts of the country will drench with intense rainfall.

Gujarat and Goa may receive heavy rainfall in the next three-four days as heavy rainfall is likely to continue over the west coast.

IMD predicted very heavy falls over east and central India for the next four days. Several areas, including coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Vidarbha and east Madhya Pradesh will receive heavy to very heavy rainfall in the next two to four days.

Many parts of the country received the highest rainfall this month. Mahabaleshwar breaks the highest rainfall record by receiving rainfall of 480 mm in 24 hours on Thursday morning. The highest rainfall was recorded on July 7, 1977, at 439.8 mm.
