Guwahati: The India Meteorological Department on Monday issued a ‘yellow watch’ for numerous states in Northeast, Northwest and South India. Heavy rain are expected in Arunachal Pradesh from Tuesday to Thursday, as well as in Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Tripura from May 9 to 12.

Over the next five days, widespread mild to moderate rainfall, thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds are extremely likely over Northeast India.

The Severe Cyclonic Storm ‘Asani’, which is currently centred over southeast and adjacent west-central Bay of Bengal, is expected to move northwestwards until Tuesday, reaching west-central and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal off the shores of North Andhra Pradesh and Odisha.

After that, it’ll most likely recurve north-northeastwards and head into the northwest Bay of Bengal off the coast of Odisha. During the next 48 hours, it is expected to progressively weaken into a Cyclonic Storm.

On Tuesday evening, light to moderate rainfall with isolated heavy rain fall is likely over coastal Odisha and surrounding portions of north coastal Andhra Pradesh, with a risk of spreading to West Bengal by Wednesday.

On Thursday, the conditions are expected to persist across the coastal portions of Odisha and West Bengal.

Over the next five days, widespread mild to moderate rainfall, thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds are extremely likely over Northeast India.

Heatwave conditions have been predicted over Rajasthan, Vidarbha and West Madhya Pradesh from May 9-12, North Madhya Maharashtra on Monday and over south Haryana, Delhi and south Punjab from May 10-12.

Fishermen are warned not to go into the central Bay of Bengal on Monday, the west-central Bay of Bengal on Wednesday and Thursday, or the northwest Bay of Bengal from May 10 to 12. Fishermen who are out at sea immediately return to coast.
