Outlook for the next 3 days (4th, 5th, 6th December):
BB-20 intensified into cyclone Jawad. It will move north-northwest initially and then towards northeast and may strengthen slightly as it approaches the coast of Puri, Odisha by 5th December. It may travel along the Odisha and West Bengal coasts thereafter, bringing rain all along these regions and into northeast India.
Rainy weather with some heavy spells likely along Odisha coast from tonight into tomorrow as the clouds associated with cyclone Jawad reach the coast prior to the storm center.
For north India, a western disturbance (D-2) is likely to affect the western Himalayan states on 5th and 6th December bringing rain at low elevations, foothills and snowfall in the mid-upper reaches.
After the passage of this WD, cold northwesterlies will blow over northern plains, intensifying the winter chill.
Weekend forecast for Mumbai, Pune and for all of konkan and Madhya Maharashtra:
Mainly dry weather to return, however some patchy rain/showers likely in the vicinity of western Ghats, parts of Madhya Maharashtra and interior konkan region for another day or two because of the excess moisture push from Arabian Sea.
