Karnataka weather: The Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC) has issued a red alert for coastal Karnataka, which is likely to receive extremely heavy rainfall on June 22. It also said thunderstorms with lightning and gusty winds (30-40 kmph) are likely at isolated places across the state.

Weather forecast for coastal districts in Karnataka

According to a KSNDMC advisory, between June 23 and June 26 isolated heavy rains are also expected in certain areas of the Krishna basin. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has also issued a weather forecast stating that coastal and adjacent districts in interior Karnataka are very likely to receive heavy to very heavy rains.

Although the Southwest Monsoon has further advanced into some more parts of Maharashtra, the remaining parts of Vidarbha, some parts of Madhya Pradesh, some other parts of Chhattisgarh and Odisha, some parts of Gangetic West Bengal, remaining parts of Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, some parts of Jharkhand and coastal and adjacent districts of interior Karnataka are very likely to receive heavy to very heavy with isolated extreme rainfall between June 21 and June 25, it said.

Strong winds as well as possibilities of landslides are predicted too.

“In fact, we are expecting widespread rainfall with heavy to very heavy rainfall all over the state from June 23 onwards,” said IMD Bengaluru Director CS Patil said.

IMD forecasts light rain for northern states

A Western Disturbance, seen as a cyclonic circulation over Himachal Pradesh and its neighbourhood and an induced cyclonic circulation over Uttar Pradesh, is likely to result in light to moderate rainfall in Delhi- which had already received some showers, Haryana, Punjab, and Chandigarh on Friday and Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan during the next five days, and expected to bring respite to the northern states that have been reeling a scorching heat wave, the IMD said. 

Rains have also been forecast for Jammu-Kashmir-Ladakh-Gilgit-Baltistan-Muzaffarabad and Himachal Pradesh. The IMD has forecast heavy to very heavy rainfall over Kerala, coastal and south interior Karnataka, and the Konkan-Goa region during the next five days as the Southwest Monsoon picks up momentum.
