As the capital city gears up for another day, Delhiites can expect a mix of warmth and clear skies, with today's temperatures ranging from a high of 34°C to a low of 22°C. While rain is not on the immediate forecast, a broader weather picture across the nation paints a varied scene, offering insights into lifestyle adjustments and potential travel plans for the days ahead.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued predictions that shed light on weather patterns across different regions. Currently, a cyclonic circulation over northeast Assam and neighboring areas, coupled with a trough stretching from northeast Madhya Pradesh to southeast Assam, is dictating weather conditions.

For the northeastern states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura, as well as Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim, the IMD forecasts widespread light to moderate rainfall with isolated thunderstorms and lightning expected on March 25 and 26, 2024. Similarly, isolated heavy rainfall or snowfall is anticipated in Arunachal Pradesh, with Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, and Assam and Meghalaya also likely to experience heavy downpours during the same period.

Moving westward, Gangetic West Bengal, Bihar, and Jharkhand are likely to witness isolated light to moderate rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms and lightning on March 25 and 26.

Looking further ahead, a fresh Western Disturbance is expected to influence weather patterns from March 27 to 29. This disturbance could bring scattered to fairly widespread light rainfall or snowfall, along with isolated thunderstorms and lightning, to regions including Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Muzaffarabad.

For those planning outdoor activities or travel in the coming days, the IMD's maximum temperature forecast provides valuable insights. South Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu are expected to experience temperatures ranging from 36°C to 40°C, surpassing normal levels by 1-3°C. Conversely, other parts of the Indian plains may see maximum temperatures between 30°C to 35°C, trending below normal by 1-4°C.

In specific pockets of Marathwada, Odisha, Kerala, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu, current temperatures already exceed the 95th percentile of climatological values, with this trend likely to continue over the next few days. Northwest India can anticipate a gradual rise in maximum temperatures by 2-3°C in the next three days, with East and Central India, along with interior Maharashtra, expecting a similar increase over the next five days.

For those residing in Telangana, Rayalaseema, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Karaikal, Kerala, and Mahe, hot and humid weather is expected to persist from March 25 to 29, making it essential to stay hydrated and take necessary precautions when venturing outdoors.
