Kolkata rains

Scattered rainfall activity has been occurring over the eastern parts of the country. The intensity of rains had reduced over the eastern parts of the state as the winds have changed direction and there was no significant weather system prevailing.


In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Friday, Malda recorded heavy rain to the tune of 52 mm, followed by Ranchi at 32 mm, Bankura 29.8 mm, Digha 11.8 mm, Diamond Harbour 10 mm, Bokaro 8.8 mm, Malda 5.2 mm and Kolkata 4.3 mm of rains.

Now, the axis of Monsoon trough is moving from northern parts of India up to South Northeast Bay of Bengal across Gorakhpur, Nawada, Bankura, and Digha. Therefore, rains are expected to increase in intensity. Scattered light to moderate rains are expected mainly over the foothills of East Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and Gangetic West Bengal. In fact, moderate rains with isolated heavy showers are expected to occur along the foothills and North Bengal.

Places such as Champaran, Supaul, Purnea, Jalpaiguri, Malda, Coochbehar, Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Gorakhpur, Maharajganj, and Ajamgarh are expected to witness rainfall activity.

A cyclonic circulation over Northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining West Bengal and Odisha coast has intensified into a low-pressure area over the region. This lead to moderate rains over the coastal parts of West Bengal. Thus, Kolkata and Midnapore may receive light to moderate rains during the next 24 hours. However, rainfall activity will reduce marginally after 24 hours as the system will move towards west-southwest and would enter North Odisha.
