Parts of North East have been experiencing heavy to very heavy rainfall since past two days, it said, issuing a red alert specifically for Assam and Meghalaya on May 26 and 27.

IMD has also issued an orange alert in Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, and Chandigarh from May 24 to 27 for heatwave; in west and east Rajasthan for heatwave and severe heatwave; and in Vidarbha for heat wave. An orange alert is issued when a heatwave is likely to persist for more than four days or a severe heatwave for more than two days. It means high health concerns for the vulnerable sections, infants, elderly and persons with chronic illness and a warning to avoid exposure to heat, keep cool and hydrated.

IMD has also issued  an orange alert for Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi, and Rajasthan from Sunday. 

It also said dry northwesterly winds prevailing over Northwest and Central India since past two days are expected to continue to prevail over the next four to five days.
