In the absence of any significant weather system, the state of Odisha has been experiencing almost dry weather conditions in the last 24 hours. The minimums have been settling below normal by 3-4 degrees Celsius while the maximums have also been settling below normal by 1-2 degrees Celsius. The day remained warm while the night was cool and pleasant.
At present, an anticyclonic circulation is developing over the northeast Bay of Bengal which is feeding moisture over the entire state of Odisha. Also, a wind confluence zone is extending from North Bihar to Maharashtra across East Madhya Pradesh.
Under the influence of all these weather systems, many places in the state of Odisha will start experiencing light to moderate rain and thundershower along with strong surface winds from the late-night hours by today. The northern parts of Odisha are likely to see more rains as compared to the rest of other parts of Odisha.
Places like Angul, Balasore, Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Titilagarh, Bhawanipatna, Koraput, Nowrangpur, and Rayagada will experience these rainfall activities during the next two to three days. By February 25, isolated places in North Odisha are likely to see heavy showers.
The day temperatures will drop due to cloudy skies and precipitation. Meanwhile, the night temperatures will rise under the influence of moist winds from the Bay of Bengal during the same episode of this rainy spell.
Although these rains will be very beneficial for all types of crops, strong surface winds may damage some of the crops.
