India Meteorological Department (IMD) has taken up a new initiative to provide the weather during past week and forecast for next two weeks on every Thursday(evening) as a video capsule. This is delivered by eminent scientists of the IMD. This short video capsule is in both Hindi as well as in English. It provides main silent features during past one week and expected weather systems & associated severe weather during next two weeks.
It is very helpful for various human activities, community activity, agriculture activity and hydrological activity. Specially, IMD’s predication of wet & dry spells over different parts of the country during next two weeks help in planning of various agricultural activities and management of various natural hazards associated with monsoon like flood, landslide, thunderstorm and lightening etc.
These weekly video capsule talks are available in U Tube, you can visit through IMD website (https://mausam.imd.gov.in/). In addition to weekly weather videos, IMD also uploads daily weather videos providing current weather systems and forecast for next 5 days.
