Good rains occurred over West Bengal and Odisha, during the last 24-48 hours. These rains occurred due to the presence of a trough which was extending from West Bengal to South India across Odisha and Chhattisgarh. Moreover, a cyclonic circulation was also present over Jharkhand and adjoining West Bengal.
During the last 24 hours, 8:30 am on Sunday, in West Bengal rains were as follows: Asansol recorded 15.6 mm of rain, Baharampur 2 mm, Bankura 29.6 mm, Burdwan 11.2 mm, Diamond Harbour 15 mm, Kolkata 8.8 mm, Krishnanagar 19.6 mm, Midnapore 13.8 mm and Sriniketan 2.1 mm.
Meanwhile, during the similar time frame in Odisha, Balasore recorded 33.1 mm of rain, Bhubaneswar 6.3 mm, Chandbali 2.2 mm, Cuttack 4.8 mm, Keonjhargarh 12.9 mm, Koraput 19.4 mm, Pulbani 3.6 mm.
Now the cyclonic circulation has shifted over Chhattisgarh and a trough is seen extending from West Bengal to South India across Chhattisgarh. Therefore, we expect spread and intensity of rains to reduce over Odisha and West Bengal but light to moderate rains are still possible over Gangetic West Bengal and Odisha for the next 24 hours.
Thereafter, Coastal Odisha may continue with isolated light rain and thunderstorm activity for next 24 hours.
By April 4 we expect weather to become dry. Temperatures which have seen a decrease of 5-6 degrees, will start rising and warm and humid weather conditions will make a comeback gradually.
