Furthermore, with the strengthening of westerly winds, the parts of south India are expected to receive scattered to widespread rainfall with some heavy falls and isolated thunderstorms over Malabar and Konkan Coast. It is predicted that the potential daily rainfall may increase up to 30-50 mm.

Likewise, south- westerly winds blowing into north-east India will see an increase in strength for the next five days. Because of this, widespread rainfall with isolated heavy falls and active thunderstorms are likely over the region through the remainder of this week and into the next week. The 5- day totals will add up to 150 mm, while over 250 mm is possible in some localized spots, which could trigger flooding as well.

As per Indian Meteorological Department, isolated heavy rainfall is very likely over Arunachal Pradesh from June 4 to 6; over Assam & Meghalaya from June 4 to 7 and Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura on June 5 and 6.

Moreover, in north India, a weak western disturbance is likely to bring isolated to scattered rainfall and mountain snow over Ladakh, Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand until Monday.

Some areas of the northern plains adjoining to the Western Himalayan Region may also experience wet weather conditions.

In case of temperatures, the mercury level is expected to be cooler across much of the country, while the Western Himalayan Region and the southwest corner of the country are likely to record near-normal maximum temperatures.

Isolated rainfall and thunderstorms are predicted over Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Gangetic-West Bengal.

Maximum temperatures are likely to be above 40°C in some parts of Rajasthan and Gujarat.
