“A fresh spell of light to moderate rainfall is likely over northwest India on May 6 and May 7,” observes IMD.

“Heavy to very heavy rainfall spells over Andaman and Nicobar Islands from May 7 to 9,” it further stated.

As IMD predicts for squally weather, wind speeds reaching 40-50 kmph gusting to 60 kmph are likely to prevail over the southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining areas of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and the Andaman Sea on May 7.

Following incessant rain on Wednesday and a hailstorm in the national capital, a layer of fog was visible in several areas in the early morning hours of Thursday.
