Heavy rain in Bhubaneswar, Koraput, Visakhaptnam; to decrease after 24 hours

August 7, 2018 6:25 PM |


At this time, rains over Odisha are normal with just 1% surplus. In view of this, heavy to extremely heavy showers are enduring over the coastal districts of Odisha, whereas light to moderate rain was observed in interior parts of the state.


In a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Monday, Puri recorded massive rains to the tune of 394 mm, followed by Bhubaneswar 173 mm, Paradip 128 mm, Angul 75 mm, Sambalpur 64 mm, Cuttack 61 mm and Chandbali 52 mm.

The low pressure area which was over Northwest Bay of Bengal has strengthened into a well-marked low pressure area and right now lies over Northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining Odisha that resulted in these heavy rain showers.

Steadily, the weather system will move inland and give heavy to very heavy rain over Odisha during the next 24 hours when Bhubaneswar, Ganjam, Kalahandi, Koraput and Malkangiri would relish the rains.

After the period of 24 hours, rains will start decreasing but then scattered places may still get rain.

The effect of this well marked low would also be seen on North Coastal Andhra Pradesh where Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram and East Godavari may get moderate to heavy rains. Meanwhile, Ananatpur, Cuddapah and Kurnool in South Andhra Pradesh may get light rains.

During the past 24 hours, Kalingapatnam saw 6 mm, Vijayawada 5 mm and Visakhapatnam 2 mm.

As on August 6, Andhra Pradesh undergoing rain deficiency of 12% and sub divisionally Rayalaseema by 41 % while Coastal Andhra Pradesh stand rain surplus by 2%.

We expect the rain surplus of Odisha to increase a bit in the coming days, whereas Andhra Pradesh will not see much change as rains will remain confide to North Andhra Pradesh only.
