The India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecasted a wet spell across northeast India on Tuesday and over the Western Himalayan Region till February 24, and a wet spell over the adjoining plains of northwest India on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Today, Delhi may get light rainfall. On February 24 and 25, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecasted another wet spell over east India. 

Under the influence of an approaching Western Disturbance and its likely induced cyclonic circulation, scattered to fairly widespread light/moderate rainfall/snowfall is very likely over Jammu-Kashmir-Gilgit-Baltistan-Muzaffarabad and Himachal Pradesh from Tuesday to February 24, with maximum activity on February 22 and 23, and isolates/scattered rainfall/snowfall over Uttarakhand during the same period. 

On Tuesday, the IMD predicts isolated heavy rainfall/snowfall across Jammu-Kashmir-Ladakh-Gilgit-Baltistan-Muzaffarabad. On February 23, isolated hailstorms are also very likely across Uttarakhand. 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, isolated light rainfall is expected throughout Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and west Uttar Pradesh as well as over Rajasthan. 

On Tuesday, strong surface winds (25-35 kmph) are expected to prevail over Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and east Rajasthan while dust producing winds (25-35 kmph) are also expected to prevail over west Rajasthan. 

Meanwhile, a cyclonic circulation in the lower tropospheric levels over Bangladesh and a trough in the lower and middle westerlies run approximately over the country and under their influence, scattered to fairly widespread light/moderate rainfall is predicted over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura during next 24 hours and will reduce thereafter. 

On February 24 and 25, the IMD predicts isolated to scattered light/moderate rainfall across Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha and West Bengal-Sikkim. 

A modest rise in minimum temperatures of 2-3 degrees Celsius is very likely across central India, followed by no substantial change while no significant change in minimum temperatures are very likely over the rest of the country during the next five days.
