The majority of the precipitation over the northern regions of the country last week was concentrated around the northwestern Himalayan states as the right leg of the southwest monsoon swiftly approaches the country from the east. However, things appear to be rapidly changing as various areas of North and Northwest India are anticipated to be graced with abundant rains over the course of the next four to five days, according to current forecasts.

The Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea are expected to dump rainfall over northern areas of the country in the coming days, according to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), which is located over North India.

The second half of the week, in the Bihar mountains, is when this trough is most likely to strengthen and move somewhat westward. The north-northwest regions of India will likely have severe rainfall of 80 mm/day starting on Tuesday, according to the weather.com met team.

This will specifically cause isolated pockets of heavy rain to form across Himachal Pradesh from Wednesday to Thursday, over Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh on Thursday, and over Uttarakhand until Thursday. On Wednesday, there is a chance that isolated areas of Uttarakhand will also receive a lot of rain.

Between Wednesday and Thursday, the eastern parts of Rajasthan will be submerged by rain, which will then spread to the western areas on Thursday. Additionally, from Tuesday to Thursday, Uttar Pradesh should receive significant amounts of rain.

A few isolated places in Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, and Punjab may get rain on Tuesday.

The state of Rajasthan is anticipated to continue to face sweltering temperatures of 40–45°C through Tuesday because there hasn't been any rain to relieve the state's unpleasant conditions during the first few days of the week.

Since the beginning of the month, the area has had varied rainfall, according to IMD. Rajasthan has had excessive rainfall (42–50 mm) despite the month being normally dry. Additionally, excessive precipitation has been seen in the Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh regions (104 mm).

Rainfall Predictions for North India:

The same cannot be said for Himachal Pradesh (39 mm), Uttarakhand (45 mm), and Uttar Pradesh (8-16 mm), which are currently experiencing insufficient rains since the start of the first monsoon month. Punjab (35 mm), Haryana, Chandigarh, and Delhi (30 mm) have enjoyed normal amounts of rain as compared to their long period average during this time.

IMD reports that from the start of the month, the area has had mixed rainfall conditions. Rajasthan (42–50 mm) has seen excessive rainfall despite a normally dry month. Over the Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh region, excessive precipitation has also been seen (104 mm).
