Not only Karnataka, but Maharashtra too will experience heavy rainfall in some parts, according to the statistics shown on the IMD website informing about the rainfall in the next 3 days. A widespread rainfall activity that too with very heavy falls in some parts of Maharashtra alongside the west coast is expected, read the IMD statement.

Apart from Konkan Coast, IMD is also expecting rainfall (can be scattered or isolated heavily) across some regions of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, and East Uttar Pradesh. The intensity is likely to increase over the next two days.

The rains will intensify over northwest India and central India from July 3. It also informed about two cyclonic circulations lying over Gujarat and East Uttar Pradesh which is expected to meander by July 4.
