Thereafter, the weather is likely to become clear and dry over most parts of the state except over parts of Sub-Himalayan West Bengal wherein, on and off rain and thundershowers would continue.

According to Skymet Weather, rains may resume over Gangetic West Bengal around June 18 and 19. Until then, dry weather would prevail that would, in turn, lead to a rise in the temperatures and humidity conditions, leading to discomfort level.
