Low Pressure Area to give heavy rains over Odisha during the next few days

September 3, 2019 4:38 PM |

Odisha Rain

This Monsoon season, Odisha has received good rainfall activities during the month of July and August. That is why Odisha is deficient by just 4%. However, West Bengal has not received continuous rainfall activities as compared to Odisha . That is why West Bengal is deficient by 24%.

A low Pressure Area has formed over Bay of Bengal. This system is moving in the westerly direction, due to which, Odisha may see moderate to heavy rains.

In a span of 24 hours, Gangetic West Bengal and some parts of Odisha have received light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells. Bankura, Purulia and Diamond harbour received 71 mm, 33 mm and 5 mm of rainfall in West Bengal. Moreover, Sundargarh in Odisha recorded 74 mm of rain. Korapur, Uri and Kalingapatanam in Odisha recorded 46 mm, 16 mm and 18 mm of rainfall activities.

Although Gangetic West Bengal also received scattered rains but these rainfall activities have not been sufficient to bring down the rainfall deficiency.

Due to the Low Pressure Area, we expect moderate rainfall activities with one or two heavy spells to occur over Odisha today and tomorrow as well. The rains will remain light over Gangetic West Bengal.

However, few moderate spells are possible over Sub- Himalayan West Bengal. So, we can say that the intensity of rains will reduce over Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal by September 5.

As predicted by the Weathermen, scattered light to moderate rainfall activities will continue over Odisha for the next few days which may erase the rain deficiency of Odisha which is just 4% as of now.
