Weather Activities likely to change over many areas of North and Central India

Currently, a western disturbance is forming as a trough around Pakistan, accompanied by the formation of a cyclone in the upper part of northeastern Rajasthan. Additionally, a trough is developing from southeastern Madhya Pradesh to Tamil Nadu. Anti-cyclones are present in the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, resulting in western wind direction and moisture influx from both bodies of water.

As a result of the current western disturbance, light to moderate rainfall/snowfall is anticipated over Jammu-Kashmir-Ladakh-Gilgit-Baltistan-Muzaffarabad and Himachal Pradesh for the next two days, and Uttarakhand for the next seven days. The weather in Rajasthan is expected to undergo changes for the next 2-3 days due to the influence of the western disturbance.

Over the next two days, the western disturbance is expected to progress eastward. Concurrently, a new western disturbance is set to become active, leading to cloud cover over half of Madhya Pradesh region with a possibility of drizzles and high-speed winds at various locations. On April 7-8, several cities of Madhya Pradesh, including the capital, may experience rainfall accompanied by strong winds.

Weather activities are forecasted to commence over Eastern Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Vidarbha, and Marathwada in the coming 2-3 days, expanding to cover other areas such as South Eastern Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, and South Rajasthan by April 9-10.

Between April 11 and April 16, 2024, there is a strong possibility of heavy thunderstorms and hailstorms in India, including regions such as Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and Madhya Pradesh. Some areas may experience heavy hailstorms and intense rainfall.

With 60-70% of wheat crop harvesting completed in Madhya Pradesh, farmers are advised by experts to refrain from leaving harvested produce in the fields. Instead, it is recommended to store the harvested crop in a safe and sheltered place to protect it from attack of moisture. The impending rain may impact standing crops in these regions, with the potential for high-speed winds to cause tilting of the crops.

Technology - Advising Farmers and Crop Yield Assesment

Food security in the light of climate change is a global imperative. In developing nations, the problem is exacerbated by variable weather, lack of reliable extension services to optimize yield and fair market access. In India, most farmers do not have access to weather advisory forecasts that are hyper local to their field and timely in nature. As all farming activities are heavily dependent on weather, decisions on application of fertilizers and pesticide, irrigation, and even plucking of fruits & vegetables and harvesting cannot be taken efficiently. In addition, significant crop losses, that are entirely preventable, accrue through adverse weather events. Crop advisory services, where available, are generic and not pegged to a farmer's seed variety, date of sowing, and growing conditions and hence do not dispense timely, actionable advice, directly relevant to a farmer. Likewise, market trends pertinent to their particular crop and location


India is poised to have a good monsoon this year. It can be seen for the NOAA graph of Fig. 1 below. El Nino conditions are changing to La Nina from May June July. Fig. 1: ENSO Probabilities by NOAA This year, the Southwest Monsoon is anticipated to arrive in extreme parts of South-SE Bay around the first week of May, gradually progressing northward. Seasonal Forecast as given by IRI in Fig. 2 below. Fig. 2: Seasonal Forecast by IRI Regional Outlook: The monsoon season may extend into early October this year. Western and Northwestern India: Above-normal to excess rainfall is possible over most parts of Western and Northwestern India, including Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, Maharashtra, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh. This increased Rains is likely to raise concerns for potential flooding, especially during the peak and late monsoon seasons. Rains are likely to be favorable to all Kharif Crops.
