However, this weather system is expected to move in an east-northeast direction and is likely to weekend into a well-marked low-pressure area during the next 24 hours.

Thus, rainfall activity will witness a significant decrease after 24 hours. Due to the presence of moisture in the atmosphere some rainfall activity may occur over parts of West Bengal but good dreams will take a backseat.

After a day or so the weather over West Bengal will go completely dry and temperatures will witness a slight increase.
