“Southwest monsoon has progressed further to some parts of the North Arabian Sea and some other parts of southern Gujarat, south of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh and most parts of the Northern Bay of Bengal and more parts of West Bengal, “the IMD tweeted.
A low-pressure area formed over the northwestern Bay of Bengal and adjacent to the Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal coasts, IMD said.
Under the influence of the low pressure, most of East India and adjacent Central India are likely to be fairly widespread to widespread rainfall activities with isolated to scattered heavy to very heavy falls from today.
IMD further said that it is likely to become clearer over the next 24 hours and move west-northeast across Odisha.
Due to westerly winds, Mumbai has received heavy rainfall since Tuesday and several parts of the city are still drowning. The local train facilities are also being disrupted due to waterlogging on the tracks.
