Kolkata rains get vigorous with 71 mm in 6 hrs, more showers in Bankura, Darjeeling

September 4, 2018 4:22 PM |

Upcoming low pressure area to give more rains over Kolkata

Active Monsoon conditions have been persisting over West Bengal, bringing good rains over several areas of the state. Sub-Himalayan West Bengal has been observing good rain and thundershowers since last many days, for instance Jalpaiguri, Darjeeling and Cooch Behar witnessed moderate showers.

Meanwhile, districts of Gangetic West Bengal like Midnapore, Kolkata, Bardhaman and Bankura observed light showers. The central districts of the state like Murshidabad, Birbhum and Malda too witnessed sporadic showers.

Tuesday saw rain activity picking up pace further, with Kolkata recording 71 mm of rains in just six hours from 08:30 am to 02:30 pm on Tuesday. To be precise, these rains were seen within the span of two hours. Though intense clouding was seen since morning but rains made an appearance after 12 pm.

These intense showers were on account of a fresh cyclonic circulation brewing in North Bay of Bengal, which is likely to soon induce a low pressure is likely. This system will bring moderate to heavy showers over Gangetic West Bengal during the next 24 to 48 hours. Other areas of the state would too see scattered light to moderate showers.

After 48 hours, we anticipate rains to reduce over Gangetic West Bengal. However showers would increase over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal on account of the eastern end of the axis of Monsoon trough shifting northward.

Consequently, we can say that good rains would continue over the state including the city of Joy, Kolkata for at least the next one week. As on September 3, the state of West Bengal is witnessing rain deficiency to the tune of 20%.
