Due to western disturbances, thunderstorms and lightning are expected in plain areas of North-West India on the nights of March 16, March 17 and 18, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), reported news agency ANI.

On Monday, the maximum temperature in the national capital settled at 33.4 degrees Celsius, four notches above the season’s average.

Light to moderate rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms is likely over south, central, east and northeast India between March 15 and 17.

The IMD bulletin said a cyclonic circulation lies over south Assam amd neighbourhood in lower tropospheric levels. Under the influence of this weather system, isolated to scattered light rainfall activity with thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds (speed 30-40 kmph) is very likely over sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim and northeast India till March 14.

“Isolated to scattered rainfall with thunderstorm and lightning very likely over Western Himalayan Region during 13th-15th; over Punjab and Rajasthan on March 13, 2023. Isolated hailstorm activity also likely over Uttarakhand on March 13,” the bulletin further said.
