Further south, Karnataka, Kerala, Mahe, and Lakshadweep were bracing for fairly widespread to widespread light to moderate rainfall, with thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds. Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Rayalaseema, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, and Karaikal would see isolated to scattered light to moderate showers.

The western disturbance, running along the mid-tropospheric westerlies north of latitude 30°N, would trigger isolated to scattered light rainfall with thunderstorms and gusty winds over Jammu-Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit-Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand from the 19th to the 23rd of June. The same weather would affect Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan on the 19th and 20th. Strong surface winds would sweep across the plains of Northwest India over the next two days.

Heatwaves to persist in parts of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

Meanwhile, the oppressive heat wave continued to grip parts of India. Temperatures soared between 44-46°C across Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and northern Madhya Pradesh, with severe heat wave conditions expected in many areas of Uttar Pradesh on the 19th, gradually easing thereafter. Hot and humid weather was likely to prevail in Odisha on the 19th and 20th, and in Bihar on the 20th of June.
