During the last 24 hours, Monsoon remained normal over Chhattisgarh and Coastal parts of Odisha, which has given light to moderate rains with few heavy falls over the region.


Through the past 24 hours from 08:30 am on Thursday, Paradip recorded heavy rains to the tune of 53 mm, followed by Gopalpur 40 mm, Ambikapur 37 mm, Keonjhargarh 20 mm, Puri 14 mm, Bhabanipatna 9 mm, Koraput 7 mm, Pulbani 6 mm, Jagdalpur 4 mm, Bhubaneswar 3 mm, Titlagarh 3 mm and Chandbali saw 3 mm of light spells.

Now, a fresh low pressure area has developed over North Odisha and adjoining Gangetic West Bengal. As a result, we can expect moderate to heavy rains with few very heavy spells over Odisha and Chhattisgarh during the next 24 to 48 hours.

Subsequently, the intensity of showers would start decreasing over Odisha, however Chhattisgarh may continue with good spells for another 24 hours. These heavy showers are most likely to trigger flood like conditions over many parts of Chhattisgarh and Odisha. Also, day and night temperatures are expected to drop considerably over both the cited states.

Most likely, rains will lessen over Chhattisgarh from July 24 onwards. Till then, the weather conditions would remain pleasant over Odisha and Chhattisgarh for at least the approaching two to three days.

Afterward in view of reduced showers, dry weather will pave in but still isolated light rains can be expected. During this phase, the weather would remain warm and humid, leading to augmentation of mercury levels.

Till now, the state of Chhattisgarh has received normal rains, while Odisha stands rain deficit by 7%.
