May 5, 2019 12:04 PM |

Even after weakening, cyclone Fani managed to give light to moderate rain and thundershower activities accompanied with strong winds over parts of West Bengal during the last 24 hours. In fact, the sky in most parts of the state remained cloudy.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Saturday, Berhampore recorded 11 mm of rain, followed by Darjeeling 7 mm, Kalaikunda 4.1 mm, Jalpaiguri 3.7 mm and Malda 3.4 mm. All these weather conditions occurred in association with cyclone Fani’s northeastwards movement.

However, weather in Kolkata remained almost dry with partly cloudy to cloudy sky conditions. The maximum temperature recorded by the city was 29.1˚C, which was 6 degrees below normal. The minimum temperature was also 2 degree below normal at 24.2˚C.

Now during the coming days, as Fani will be moving away towards Northeast India and weakening, the weather conditions in West Bengal including the capital city Kolkata will start improving.

Mainly dry weather conditions will prevail and as time progresses Gangetic West Bengal will start observing hot weather conditions. Moreover, as clouding will decrease, day temperatures over most parts of West Bengal including Kolkata will rise rapidly.
