Following severe rain in the Delhi-NCR region on Saturday, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast that the rain would continue until Sunday morning. According to RK Jenamani, a senior scientist at the IMD, Delhi will see another round of rain beginning September 17. Heavy rain will continue in Delhi until tomorrow early. It will cover the Delhi-NCR region, as well as Punjab and Rajasthan. Systems developing over east Rajasthan and another over the Bay of Bengal are expected to strengthen further. From September 17 to 18, Delhi would see another round of rain.

For the next three to four days, the meteorological service predicts “heavy to very heavy” rainfall in Mumbai, the remainder of the Konkan, and Western Maharashtra. An orange alert has been issued for Raigad, Pune, Ratnagiri, Satara, and Kolhapur, indicating that local officials should be prepared if the rain continues. A yellow alert has been issued for the districts of Mumbai, Thane, Wardha, Palghar, and Sindhudurg. The remainder of Maharashtra could anticipate 'mild to moderate' rain during the next three to four days.

The IMD officials said, "The low-pressure system that has formed in the Bay of Bengal is likely to become a depression and travel north-northwest during the following few days. Beginning on Sunday, it is predicted to bring more heavy rains to Western Maharashtra, Konkan, and the Mumbai region."

Due to a low-pressure system that has formed over the Bay of Bengal, Odisha is also likely to get severe to very heavy rain during the next two days. According to PTI, the low-pressure region is highly likely to consolidate into a depression near the coastlines of Odisha and West Bengal in the next 48 hours, according to the IMD.

Puri, Khurda, Cuttack, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara, Dhenkanal, Jajpur, and Bhadrak are all expected to get severe to very heavy rain. Heavy rainfall is also possible in the districts of Ganjam, Balasore, Nayagarh, Angul, Boudh, Sambalpur, Subarnapur, Bolangir, and Mayurbhanj.

According to the Meteorological Department, Uttarakhand will see heavy rain from September 11 to September 15. Western Uttar Pradesh is expected to receive heavy rain on Sunday, while Western Rajasthan will receive rain on both Sunday and Monday.
