The MeT department has predicted light to moderate scattered to fairly widespread rainfall with thunderstorm activity over northeast India during many days of the week due to trough over northeast India and strong southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal at lower tropospheric levels.

Overall, rainfall activity is likely to be above normal over south Peninsular India including Andaman & Nicobar Islands; near normal over many parts of northeast India.
