Parts of North India are expected to experience heat wave to severe heatwave conditions over the next three days, with a gradual decrease anticipated after that, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.

As per IMD, a new western disturbance is affecting the Western Himalayan region. This system is expected to bring light to moderate isolated to scattered rainfall, accompanied by thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds (30-40 kmph) across Jammu-Kashmir-Ladakh-Gilgit-Baltistan-Muzaffarabad, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan from June 18 to 20.


During the next five days, isolated to scattered light to moderate rainfall, along with thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds, is highly expected over Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha, and Chhattisgarh.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) reports minimal progress of the monsoon since June 11.

Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh are under a red category warning for Sunday and Monday due to extremely high temperatures. A red warning indicates that local authorities must take action to prevent disasters and emergencies caused by the severe heat.

Currently, the Northern Limit of Monsoon spans through Navsari, Jalgaon, Amravati, Chandrapur, Bijapur, Sukma, Malkangiri, Vizianagaram, and Islampur. IMD forecasts favorable conditions for the Southwest Monsoon to advance further into additional parts of Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Coastal Andhra Pradesh, and Northwest Bay of Bengal, as well as remaining parts of Gangetic West Bengal, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, and some areas of Bihar over the next 4-5 days. The monsoon’s progress is delayed by a few days; it was originally anticipated to cover Odisha, West Bengal, and parts of Bihar and Jharkhand by June 15.
