West Bengal continue to witness dry weather

The state of West Bengal has witnessed very good rains this pre-Monsoon season. Gangetic West Bengal at present is surplus by 56%. While, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim are observing normal rain with a deficiency of 3% (+/-19% considered normal).

According tom Skymet meteorologists, the weather of Gangetic West Bengal is expected to remain dry for at least next three days while, intermittent rains will be observed in Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim. The intensity of rains will not be heavy though.

By June 5, Monsoon usually reaches Northeast India and by June 10, it covers more than half of West Bengal including Kolkata. However, rains are expected to commence over Gangetic West Bengal around June 1 and 2. Although, during this period, rain and thundershower activities would remain light and scattered, some places might witness one or two moderate spells.

Usually, during pre-Monsoon season, frequent thunder squalls are a common feature and are known as Nor’Westers or Kal Baisakhi. But the remaining days of May are not likely to witness any such weather activity like violent thundershowers or lightning strike. The temperatures are expected to remain above normal over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim. Gangetic West Bengal will observe marginally above normal temperatures.

We can also say that pre-Monsoon season would end up on a surplus note for the state of Gangetic West Bengal.
