rain in bihar

Bihar has been observing some good rains for the last couple of days. But this spell has mostly been moderate in intensity and confined to some pockets. For instance, in the last 24 hours from 8.30 am on Monday Patna received 49.6 mm of rain. Forbesganj and Muzaffarpur also received 27.6 mm and 22.6 mm of rain, respectively. Gaya too recorded rain of 19.6 mm.

Beginning today, a prolonged spell of 4-5 days is going to hit Bihar. During this period, widespread rain will be observed in the state with increased intensity.

According to meteorologists at Skymet, heavy rain will be witnessed in most parts of the state for the next 3-4 days. Districts in North Bihar like West Champaran, Gopalganj, Sitamarhi, Madhubani, Khagaria, Madhepura and Supaul will be the worst affected. Flood like conditions may be witnessed in these districts due to the intensity of rain. Heavy rain in adjoining Nepal may aggravate the situation as flood waters may be released by the Nepalese government leading to overflowing rivers in Bihar.

Currently, a Low-Pressure Area has formed over East Uttar Pradesh and adjoining Bihar. A Trough is also extending from Punjab up to Northeast India across Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Both these systems would be steering the weather activity in Bihar.

By July 14 the weather activity will reduce but moderate intensity rain will continue to be observed in some pockets of the state. So the state machinery and the people of Bihar need to be prepared for some flooding rains for the next 3-4 days.
