Rain in Kolkata

The eastern end of the axis of Monsoon Trough has shifted northwards and is passing across the central parts of West Bengal. This system would bring in more rains for Kolkata and many other parts of West Bengal during the next two to three days.

Many parts of Sub Himalayan West Bengal have been observing moderate rains lately. A similar condition was observed during the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, parts of Gangetic West Bengal received light rains only during the same time frame. The capital city of Kolkata received light showers. In the other parts of the state, the weather remained mainly warm and humid.

In a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Saturday, Cooch Behar has received 13.9 mm of rainfall, followed by Jalpaiguri 10.2 mm, Darjeeling 7.4 mm and Kolkata 0.2 mm.

Until now, the eastern end of the axis of Monsoon Trough was passing through South of Gangetic West Bengal, but during the last 24 hours, it has shifted northwards and is passing across the central parts of West Bengal.

In the wake of this movement, the rainfall activities would increase mainly over Sub Himalayan West Bengal. Many parts may receive moderate rainfall activities. One or two places may even get to see heavy showers for the next 48 hours.

Moreover, moist winds are blowing across Gangetic West Bengal which may bring in light spells of rain and thundershower activities in some parts of the region. All these weather conditions are likely for the next two to three days.

Places like Cooch Behar, Jalpaiguri, New Jalpaiguri, Siliguri, Dinajpur, Malda would experience moderate to heavy showers. While Kolkata, Shanti Niketan, Bankura, North and South 24 Parganas, Purulia etc will receive light rains only.
