On February 17th, 2024, isolated light to moderate rainfall is expected over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam & Meghalaya, and Nagaland, owing to a cyclonic circulation over central Assam.

Towards the latter part of the forecast period, from February 21st to 24th, a fresh cyclonic circulation/trough will induce fairly widespread to widespread light/moderate rainfall/snowfall across Northeast India.

  • On February 19th, very heavy rainfall is anticipated in isolated places across the Western Himalayan Region.
  • Hailstorm activity is likely in isolated places over Jammu division on February 18th, over Himachal Pradesh on February 18th and 19th, and over Uttarakhand from February 18th to 20th.
  • Scattered to fairly widespread rainfall is expected over Punjab, Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh, East Uttar Pradesh, north Madhya Pradesh, and north Rajasthan during various dates from February 19th to 22nd.
