The Met Department predicts widespread rainfall, thunderstorms, lightning, and hailstorms over sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim. 

During the next 24 hours, widespread light to moderate rainfall with thunderstorms is expected over northeast India, with isolated heavy rainfall over Arunachal Pradesh. Under the influence of a feeble Western Disturbance, isolated to scattered light rainfall is very likely throughout the Western Himalayan Region on February 6-7. 

On February 8-9, scattered to fairly widespread light/moderate rainfall is very likely throughout the Western Himalayan area due to the influence of another Western Disturbance. On February 8-9, isolated light rain is likely in northern Punjab, Haryana, and Chandigarh.

During the next 24 hours, cold to severe cold day conditions are expected in several portions of Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, and West Uttar Pradesh.

During the next 2-3 days, dense to very dense fog conditions in isolated pockets are predicted over the plains of northwest India. 

Dense to very dense fog conditions are likely in some parts in the night and morning hours over Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, north Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh during the next two days. 

According to the MeT department, the induced cyclonic circulation over north Haryana and it’s neighborhood is very likely to travel east-northeastwards away from northwest India by February 5. 

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicts heavy rainfall in Bihar, West Bengal, and a few other states today.

A wet spell is projected for the western Himalayan region, as well as east and northeast India, for the next 24 hours, after which it is expected to subside.
