After withdrawal of Southwest Monsoon, rain in the states of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand becomes minimal. These states largely depend on passage of any Western Disturbance, which is usually not active during the months of October and November.
The weather during the last ten days have been dry in these places, except for some isolated light rain. Temperatures have also been recording in the mid-thirties. Unlike the northern plains the daytime is fairly hot here.
However, in the wake of cyclone Hudhud there can be some rain in these sates including east Uttar Pradesh. Cyclones that form in the Bay of Bengal normally cross Odisha coast and continue to affect weather in these pockets in terms of good rain.
Cyclone Hudhud is likely to make landfall between Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh and Gopalpur in Odisha on the night of October 11 or early morning of October 12. After the cyclone makes landfall, the area will witness heavy rain accompanied by strong winds. It will weaken gradually but the impact will be felt in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and east Uttar Pradesh also.
Rain in these states due to cyclone Hudhud will hamper farming as harvesting of crops will get delayed and wastage will go up. These state are already bearing the brunt of poor monsoon rains and this unwanted showers may aggravate the problem of the farmers further.
