Several parts of Jharkhand and West Bengal have been recording good rainfall activity in the last many days.

Till now, the state of Jharkhand has witnessed normal rains with a surplus of 8%, while Gangetic West Bengal by 12% and Sub-Himalayan West Bengal by 7%.


At present, the axis of Monsoon trough is running across central parts of the country that is why southeasterly winds coming from Bay of Bengal are blowing across the region.

In a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Bankura 25 mm, Burdwan 24 mm, Midnapore 16 mm, Sri Niketan 12 mm, Chaibasa 9 mm, Jamshedpur 7 mm, Jalpaiguri 5 mm, Bokaro 4 mm and Kolkata 4 mm.

Weathermen at Skymet Weather expect light rains to occur over Jharkhand at some places in the coming days. The rain intensity may increase around August 24 and 26, but during that time also very heavy rains are ruled out.

Consequently, we can say that after two days rains may pace up. On and off rains will continue and the weather will not go completely dry.

The state of West Bengal will receive scattered light rains over most parts for the next two days. Thereafter rains will decrease further but Sub-Himalayan West Bengal will continue with on and off light to moderate showers.

Central and southern districts of the state will see isolated rain activity so we can say till end of the month rains will remain subdued over most parts and the weather will remain warm and sultry.
