Dry weather in Bihar and Jharkhand

During this pre-Monsoon season so far, Jharkhand has received excess rainfall and is surplus by 47%. Although, Bihar has also received good rains it is deficient by 16%. The eastern districts of Bihar received more rains in comparison to the western districts due to the impact of a north-south trough that occasionally developed from Sub Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim/East Bihar up to South India across Gangetic West Bengal and Odisha.

From the past two to three days, Bihar and Jharkhand have been witnessing dry weather due to which the day and night temperatures in the region have shot up and are settling marginally above normal.

According to Skymet meteorologists, no significant weather activity is expected in Bihar and Jharkhand for at least next two days. Post this, eastern districts of Bihar would start witnessing scattered rains in the wake of a trough which would run from Uttar Pradesh to West Bengal across Bihar. During this period, the northeastern districts of Jharkhand too would witness short spells of rain.

Places like Bhagalpur, Kishanganj, Katihar, Supaul, Banka, Madhepura, Saharsa in Bihar while Sahibganj, Dumka, Godda, Pakur in Jharkhand might receive scattered rains May 30 onward. These intermittent rain and thundershowers activities would continue until the first week of June leading to drop in mercury.

Also, during pre-Monsoon season, Kal Baisakhi or Nor’Westers are very common. However, this time, the intensity of these activities has been few because of less pre-Monsoon showers in the region.
