Northeast India: Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura are all likely to see isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall activity.
India's Central, West, and South -According to IMD, Central, West, and South India areas are projected to have moderate rainfall activity during the next 7 days.
According to IMD's forecast for rainfall in August and September 2023, India is projected to see average precipitation during the second part of the monsoon. This occurred after severe heavy precipitation in July caused flood-like conditions in numerous regions of the nation, resulting in loss of life and property damage.
The forecast service noted that it's unlikely that the second half of the Indian Monsoon will be impacted by the El Nino phenomena. According to IMD, El Nino is typically linked to India experiencing dry weather and a weakening of the monsoon winds. According to IMD, there is a very good chance that the monthly rainfall for the entire nation will be below average in August 2023.
