Rain in West Bengal and Odisha

In the last 24 hours, many parts of West Bengal witnessed good Monsoon showers along with strong gusty winds. Meanwhile, only isolated light rainfall activity was observed in parts of Odisha, such as Sundargarh that recorded 2 mm of rain.

For West Bengal, Purulia recorded 33 mm of rain, followed by Asansol 27.4 mm, Panagarh 22 mm, Jalpaiguri 19.7 mm, Siliguri 17 mm, Cooch Behar 10.6 mm, Berhampore 6 mm, Bagati and Mandla 5.2 mm, Krishnanagar 4.1 mm, Darjeeling 3.6 mm, Balurghat 3 mm and Sri Niketan 0.9 mm.

Due to continuous good rains over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Monsoon rains will now come in the normal category over the area, but Gangetic West Bengal will still remain rain deficient.  An east-west trough running from Bihar to Nagaland across parts of West Bengal is responsible for these ongoing good Monsoon rains over parts of West Bengal.

Further, we expect light to moderate Monsoon rains with isolated heavy spells and strong winds over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal during the next 24 to 48 hours. During that time, rains in Gangetic West Bengal including Kolkata and Odisha will remain subdued.

The good news is that between June 30 and July 2, Monsoon showers will pick up pace over parts of Gangetic West Bengal and Odisha, in the wake of a low-pressure area likely to form over Northwest Bay of Bengal off Odisha Coast.

Therefore, between June 30 and July 2, heavy to very heavy Monsoon rains will lash parts of Odisha and few parts of Gangetic West Bengal. due to such widespread intense showers, disruptions may occur in parts of these states.
