Durga Puja 2019 in Kolkata

The eastern parts of our country have been witnessing intermittent rain and thundershowers from the past few days. In the past 24 hours, scattered light to moderate rains has occurred over many parts of West Bengal. Now, a Trough is extending from Sub-Himalayan West Bengal to Karnataka, thus few good spells of rain are possible over the central and eastern parts of West Bengal until October 10. Thereafter, the weather activity will subside. At the time of rains, places like Midnapore, South Parganas, Kolkata, Purulia, Bankura, Bardhaman, Birbhum may see few good spells of rain and thundershower activities. Generally, when the Monsoon is in the withdrawal phase, thunderstorms, thundershowers, and lightning strike generally increase. During the same time, we can also expect lightning strikes and strong winds over the state.

It is likely that these rain and thundershower activities might disrupt the ongoing Durga Puja celebrations. Rainfall is expected most probably in the afternoon and evening hours while the day will be warm and humid.
