In the month of March, rabi crops especially mustard and gram are ready for harvesting, while wheat, barley, and other crops are grain filling stage, at which time rain, strong wind or hail has increased the concern of farmers. In many states of North India, there is a possibility of hail in some places along with rain and strong winds during the next 24 hours.

On March 6 and 7,
there will be strong winds with rain in many districts of Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan. During this period, there is a possibility of hail in many places. There is also a possibility of widespread rain and snowfall in the western Himalayan states. 

Light to moderate rains is may occur over Bihar, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, southern interior Karnataka, Kerala, interior Tamil Nadu and parts of northeast India and Vidarbha. Isolated light rains may occur over Gujarat and East Madhya Pradesh. 

Day temperatures can fall from 3 to 5 degrees Celsius in all rainy areas. Considering the forecast of rain and strong wind, farmers are advised not to irrigate the crops in rainy areas and do proper drainage management in all crops and vegetables. The mustard crop is almost ripe, and harvesting will intensify after Holi, in which case hail will be damaged. Wheat and barley crops have also started to fall in the grain, so if there is wind or hail due to heavy rains, the wheat crop will fall, which will affect the productivity per hectare as well as the quality of the crop. 

Rain and snowfall were recorded in parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh during the last 36 hours. While light rain was recorded at isolated places in Uttarakhand. Light to moderate rains has occurred over Haryana and West Uttar Pradesh. Apart from this, light to moderate rains have been recorded in Delhi, northern Rajasthan, central parts of Uttar Pradesh, north and north-eastern Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Assam, Meghalaya, and Arunachal Pradesh.

The hailstorm has also fallen at some places in Alwar, Bharatpur, Churu, and Jhunjhunu in eastern and northern parts of Rajasthan and Hisar, Bhiwani, Rohtak, Mahendragarh, Rewari, Charkhi-Dadri, and Jhajjar districts of Haryana and Some Western Parts of Uttar Pradesh.
