Kolkata Article

The second largest city in India, Kolkata continues to witness dry and humid weather. Currently, north northwesterly winds are prevailing which are basically dry and cool in nature. Therefore, day temperature are settling near to normal and the minimums have dropped.

Now, these winds are likely to veer further to north-northeastwards during next 48 hours. Post this, we can further expect a drop in night temperatures.

Thick layer of haze is prevalent during morning hours and pollution content is at a higher note in the city. We see a rise in pollution level due to the current Durga Puja festivities and dry winds in the atmosphere. No relief is foreseen in terms of pollution.

The city might witness some clouds during afternoon hours. However, at this time of the season, Kolkata generally receives rain over few parts. Sadly, this has not been the case so far. The state has received scanty rainfall and we don’t expect any further improvement. The city usually records 180.5 mm of rainfall which is normal, but till now it has been able to receive only 52.9 mm of rainfall.

The inhabitants were able to witness this much of rain solely because of the Cyclonic Storm, Titli between October 11-13. Rest of the days, the city experienced dry weather.
