The month of February was dry for all the three states of Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, and West Bengal. However, the initial days of March brought some rainy spells for all three.
In fact, during the last 24 hours also, light to moderate showers poured over the trio thereby eradicating almost a week long dry spell prevailing over all the three states. These recent rainy spells also resulted in the drop in temperatures that were settling above normal.
A cyclonic circulation was over the northern parts of West Bengal. Another cyclonic circulation was over North Odisha and adjoining areas. Moreover, a trough was also extending from this system up to Tamil Nadu across Odisha and Andhra Pradesh.
On account of both these weather systems, Coastal Odisha along with many places over West Bengal including in Kolkata received light to moderate rains. One or two heavy spells were also recorded by both the states.
Moreover, a trough was also passing through Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema. Due to this, moisture incursion due to the winds from the Bay led to cloud development over Andhra Pradesh thereby resulting in rainfall activity.
Let’s have a look at the rainfall recorded in all the three states in the span 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday:
However, now the trough is weakening and is gradually moving eastwards. Thus, a significant reduction in rainfall activity is expected over West Bengal, Odisha and also over Andhra Pradesh within next 24 hours. With the reduction in rainfall, the temperatures across these states are expected to rise once again.
Though isolated showers are still likely to show up at a few parts of Gangetic West Bengal and over Coastal Odisha. The rainfall intensity will, however, increase over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim also including the northeastern states.
