Rain in Chhattisgarh

Updated on July 21 at 2:30 PM: The well-marked low-pressure area which was persisting over Northwest Bay of Bengal off West Bengal and Odisha coast has intensified into a depression. We expect heavy to very rains over the state during the next 24 to 46 hours.

Updated on July 21 at 12:20 PM: As forecasted by Skymet Weather, moderate to heavy Monsoon rain occurred in many parts of Chhattisgarh during the past day.


In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Friday,  Jgdalpur recorded heavy rain to the tune of 58.7 mm followed by Ambikapur at 22.4 mm of rains.

In the same span of time, Bilaspur witnessed 3.9 mm of rain, Durg 1.2 mm, Raipur 1.2 mm and Rajnandgaon 0.6 mm of rains.

As per Skymet Weather, a well-marked low-pressure area which persists over Northwest Bay of Bengal off West Bengal and Odisha coast can be attributed for these rains over the state of Chhattisgarh. This weather system is expected to intensify more during the next 24 hours.

Thus, weathermen anticipate that districts such as Jagdalpur, Bijapur, Sukma, Durg, Raipur, Kaker and Kabir Dham are likely to experience heavy to very heavy rainfall during the next 48 hours. These hefty rains will also lead to flood like conditions over the central and southern regions of Chhattisgarh.

After 48 hours, though Monsoon rains will continue but the intensity of showers are expected to decrease as the above-mentioned weather system would be moving in west north westwards direction.
