The weather dynamics are shifting across India, impacting both the mountainous regions and the plains. The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a crucial forecast highlighting the upcoming 72 hours as highly significant due to expected weather changes.


Weather Forecast for March 16 to March 18, 2024:

  • Expected Weather Conditions: IMD predicts light to moderate rainfall accompanied by thunder across various parts of the country from March 16 to March 18, 2024.


There’s also a possibility of hailstorms in some regions, which could affect the eastern and central parts of India, areas that are currently witnessing the ripening of the Rabi crops. The ongoing harvest could be adversely affected if the forecasted rain or hailstorm materializes.


  • Impact on Agriculture: The anticipated weather conditions are a concern for farmers, especially in eastern and central India, where Rabi crops are ready for harvest. Unexpected rain or hail can cause significant damage to these crops, affecting the agricultural output and potentially leading to economic losses for the farming community.


  • Transitioning Weather Patterns: The northern and eastern parts of India are experiencing a shift from the cold weather, leading to a pleasant “pink winter.” However, the constant change in weather, including unexpected rain and strong winds, has been a trend in recent weeks, causing disruptions and affecting daily life.


Hailstorm Predictions:

The IMD has again forecasted the likelihood of hailstorms, particularly in the Gangetic West Bengal region on March 16, 2024.

Previous instances of hailstorms have already caused considerable damage to standing crops, including wheat, pulses, and oilseeds, and there’s a looming threat to the mango crop as well.
