A fresh Western Disturbance is likely to affect northwestern parts of the country, including Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and neighboring states from June 18-20. This disturbance will bring light to moderate isolated to scattered rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds (30-40 kmph).

Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha, and Chhattisgarh are expected to experience isolated to scattered light to moderate rainfall with similar weather conditions persisting over the next five days.

A cyclonic circulation over the northeast Arabian Sea near Saurashtra and a trough extending from this system to the east-central Arabian Sea off the Maharashtra coast will influence weather over western and southern India. Gujarat, Konkan & Goa, Madhya Maharashtra & Marathwada are likely to experience scattered to fairly widespread light to moderate rainfall with thunderstorms and lightning during the next five days.
