Naresh Kumar, senior scientist at the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Thursday said, "Monsoon is in its advanced stage and is active. We can see clouds over Kokan, Goa, Central India, as well as Northeastern states."
The senior scientist predicted heavy rainfall in Madhya Pradesh over the next two days.
"The Low-Pressure area that originated from the northwest bay has now moved to the central part of north Madhya Pradesh. In the coming two days, Madhya Pradesh may witness heavy to very heavy rainfall. More than 12 cm of rain is expected," he said.
He said that the winds will be strong on the west coast of the country due to low-pressure conditions.
"We are expecting extremely heavy rainfall (more than 20 cm) in parts of South Gujarat and Konkan Goa today," he said.
He also predicted heavy rainfall in east and northeast India over the next five days.
"East and Northeast India is expected to receive heavy rainfall in the next five days, due to moisture-laden winds from the Bay of Bengal," the IMD scientist said.
Meanwhile, waterlogging was witnessed in several parts of Navsari, Gujarat due to heavy rainfall in the region on Thursday afternoon. As per IMD predictions, heavy rain is very likely at isolated places over the Bharuch, Surat, Navsari, Valsad, Daman, and Dadra Nagar Haveli districts of the Gujarat region for the rest of the day.
Rain also lashed parts of Chandigarh. IMD predicted light to moderate rain/thundershowers over the parts of Tricity (Chandigarh, SAS Nagar (Mohali) and Panchkula) and adjoining areas.
