Over the next three to four days, the peninsula and central India are projected to experience widespread and heavy rain, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

According to IMD, a shear zone was present in the middle troposphere along the southern tip of India and was expected to progressively move north over the course of the next four to five days. The monsoon trough was located south of where it usually is, and it will stay there for the next four to five days. Around August 7, a low-pressure region was predicted to develop over the northwest and adjacent west central Bay of Bengal.

In Rayalaseema, coastal Andhra Pradesh, and Yanam on August 5, extensive rainfall with sporadic heavy rain and thunderstorms/lightning was probable due to these systems.
