Kolkata rains

With Extremely Severe Cyclone Fani gearing up for landfall at Odisha coast, West Bengal has also started bracing up for facing the brunt. According to Skymet Weather, Fani after making landfall near Puri district on May 3, would move north-northeast through and through Gangetic West Bengal.

However, by the time Fani would reach West Bengal, it would have weakened  into a cyclonic storm only.

The intensity and spread of rains will remain on the lower side on May 2. Beginning Friday, West Bengal including state capital of Kolkata would start witnessing heavy to very heavy rains. As Fani reaches North Coastal Odisha, some parts could also witness extremely heavy rainfall.

These showers would be accompanied with squally winds to the tune of 70 kmph - 80 kmph gusting up to 100 kmph.

Heavy to very heavy rains are predicted over few parts such as Medinipur, 24 South Parganas, Kolkata, Howrah, Bankura, Hooghly and Bardhaman.

By May 4, rains will cover central parts of the state such as Krishnanagar, Birbhum, Murshidabad, and Malda. We predict light to moderate rains, along with one or two heavy spells over these areas.

By May 5, the cyclonic storm Fani will lose its strength and also move towards Bangladesh. As a result, weather will gradually start clearing up over the entire state.
