September 8, 2019 4:52 PM |

Kolkata Rain

During the last 24 hours, the eastern state of West Bengal has recorded light to moderate rains and thundershowers at many places. Also, one or two places managed to receive heavy rains.

Despite these rains, the seasonal rainfall is still running deficient over the state. While Sub-Himalayan West Bengal is rain deficient by 13%, Gangetic West Bengal is rain deficient by a whopping 28%.

Presently, a Low Pressure Area lies over northern parts of Madhya Pradesh and adjoining region of Chhattisgarh. Another Cyclonic Circulation lies over central parts of Assam.

Due to the presence of these systems, now rains are likely to pick up pace over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal. Here, heavy showers are likely to affect many places during the next 48 hours.

While Gangetic West Bengal might also receive light to moderate rains and thundershowers at multiple places.

Kolkata is also set to see similar rains. Here, the weather will remain mainly warm and humid. Due to the presence of clouds and the occurrence of rainfall activity, temperatures are set to decrease.  While day temperatures are likely to settle between 30 to 31 degrees, night temperatures are likely to remain above 26 degree Celsius.

These rains are likely to continue during the coming few days. Hence, the seasonal deficiency of rainfall might decrease hereafter.

The farmers are sure to benefit due to the occurrence of these rains.
