Depression in Bay batters Odisha with heavy rains, more in offing

rain-in-OdishaThe well-marked low pressure area in Northwest Bay of Bengal has further intensified into a depression, bringing heavy Monsoon rains over parts of Odisha.

The depression is presently marked in North Bay of Bengal, around 150 km southeast of Digha and 220 km southeast of Balasore. The system is expected to move inland in northwest direction.

According to Skymet Weather, several parts of Odisha have received moderate to heavy rains, particularly coastal areas have recorded some very heavy showers. In span of 21 hours from 8:30 am on Tuesday, Chandbali has recorded whopping 146 mm of rain, followed by Balasore 90 mm and Puri 13 mm.

The weather system has been prevailing off the Odisha coast for last couple of days, leading to good rainfall over the state. Weathermen predict moderate to heavy with isolated very heavy rains to continue over several parts of Odisha during the next 24 hours.

Now as the system moves inland, the rain belt will also cover parts of  Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh, giving good rainfall over those regions as well.

At present, Odisha is witnessing deficient Monsoon rains. As on August 16, the cumulative rainfall deficiency for the state stand at 11%. With more rains in offing, we expect the coastal state to cover up the deficiency and head towards surplus rains.
