Four states — Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Chhattisgarh — that have seen deficit rainfall this monsoon season are expected to witness heavy showers during the next couple of days due to low-pressure area over west-central Bay of Bengal, IMD said.

“Heavy to very heavy rainfall would occur over Vidarbha, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Madhya Maharashtra, Marathwada, coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, north interior Karnataka and coastal Karnataka in the next couple of days,” the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said in its latest bulletin.

According to private weather forecaster Skymet, the low pressure area that has formed over Bay of Bengal will be affecting the weather over Andhra Pradesh and Odisha and thereafter, the system will move towards peninsular India.

Meanwhile, the quantum of average monsoon rainfall across the country during June 1-September 13 has been 673 millimetres which is 16% less than the benchmark long-period average (LPA) of 802 millimetres.
