Strong surface winds (25-35 kmph) are very likely to prevail over Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and east Rajasthan on Tuesday while dust raising winds (25-35 kmph) are also very likely to prevail over west Rajasthan on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, there is a cyclonic circulation over Bangladesh in lower tropospheric levels and a trough in lower and middle westerlies runs roughly across, and under their influence, scattered to fairly widespread light/moderate rainfall is likely over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura during next 24 hours and will reduce thereafter.

Isolated to scattered light/moderate rainfall is very likely over Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha and West Bengal-Sikkim on February 24 and 25, the IMD said.
