The states of Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Bihar are all set to see some heavy rains in the offing. These rains will occur, courtesy a well marked low pressure area which formed in the northern region of the Bay of Bengal.
Now, the system is moving almost west northwestward and will reach closer to Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh as well as Bihar. The system has already given heavy to very heavy showers over many areas of Gangetic West Bengal.
Heavy to very heavy rainfall activity is expected in these parts. The possibility of localized flooding cannot be ruled out over areas that are prone to floods, particularly the southern parts of Bihar including Buzar, Nawada, Aurangabad, Gaya, Patna and even going further up to Banka and Munger.
For Jharkhand, the northern parts will see heavy to very heavy showers including Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Dumka, Dhanbad, Deoghar, Hazaribagh, Bokaro, Gumla and adjoining regions. Rains may recede tomorrow here, but good showers will continue in some parts.
Thereafter, the system will move in proximity of Chhattisgarh tomorrow giving hefty showers in the regions of Bilaspur, Raipur, Ambikapur. Southern parts of the state are expected to see lesser rains as compared to the northern parts. Expect the rainy episode over these states to reduce after tomorrow.
