Thunderstorm, rain may affect Kolkata anytime soon

Almost the entire eastern state of West Bengal is dry from the past 4-5 days. The last rains that most parts of the state had recorded were during the second week of the month.  Since then, almost the entire state is dry. In the same pattern, the last 24 hours were also no different for the state and its capital city, Kolkata.

As per Skymet Weather, the low-pressure area over west central Bay of Bengal off the Andhra Coast will move in a north-northwesterly direction towards Odisha and may intensify further. Due to this, Gangetic West Bengal including Kolkata can get to see rains around October 18.
