According to the IMD, fairly widespread rainfall with isolated heavy falls is very likely over Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala, Goa and parts of Maharashtra and Karnataka during the next two days.

Under the influence of likely formation of a low-pressure area over the northeast Bay of Bengal and the consequent strengthening of lower-level winds along the west coast; fairly widespread rainfall with isolated heavy to very heavy falls is likely over Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Karnataka and Kerala between September 19 to 21, the IMD said.

Meanwhile, a moderate thunderstorm with lightning is very likely at isolated places over southeast Rajasthan, eastern Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal, Sikkim, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka during the next 12 hours, it said.
