The state of West Bengal is all set to receive good rainfall and thundershower activities. In fact, during the last 24 hours, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal witnessed light spells of rain and thundershowers, while the weather of Gangetic West Bengal remained almost dry and warm leading to a rise in the day temperature by 5-6 degrees Celsius.
The rain was due to an induced Cyclonic Circulation over the northern parts of Uttar Pradesh. And with the building up of another Cyclonic Circulation over the northern parts of Chhattisgarh we expect more light rain and thundershower in West Bengal for the next 24 hours. The northern parts of the state will be the centre point of weather activity.
Thick clouding and the rainfall activities the state capital and other parts of Gangetic West Bengal will see a significant drop in the day temperatures during the next 24 hours. However, a marginal rise in night temperature is likely to be seen in the entire state.
Places like Siliguri, Jalpaiguri, Cooch Behar, Malda, Shantiniketan and North Dinajpur may experience short spells of light rain or thundershower activities which will be seen during the next 36 to 48 hours as the above-mentioned weather system would be weakening and will be moving east-northeastwards.
Due to less moisture content, the southern parts of Gangetic West Bengal will remain dry. The northern parts of West Bengal will experience foggy conditions during the early morning hours.
