An Anti Cyclone persists over Rajasthan and adjoining areas. Whenever Western Disturbances approach, these anti cyclones are pushed far to the east. At present, the system has shifted towards coastal parts of West Bengal, Odisha, and North Bay of Bengal.  Thus, winds from the land and the sea merge with each other over the region, resulting in cloud formation and rains thereafter.
