Odisha and Chhattisgarh gear up for fresh Monsoon rains, heavy spell expected

July 19, 2019 10:44 AM |

Rain in Odisha

At present, a Cyclonic Circulation is over Northwest and adjoining West Central Bay of Bengal off Odisha coast. This system will gradually move in Southwest direction.

Due to its influence, light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells have already occurred over Odisha. The state of Chhattisgarh also saw light to moderate rains at many places.

Now, we expect rain activities to increase further over both states. However, these rains will remain confined mainly over South Odisha and South and Central districts of Chhattisgarh for the next 24 to 48 hours.

Thereafter the rain intensity will decrease. However, light rains with one or two moderate spells will continue over both the states.

Another spell of rains is expected to commence over many parts of Odisha and Chhattisgarh around July 23. The reason for these rains can be attributed to the formation of a North-South Trough from East Uttar Pradesh to Telangana. This spell is expected to continue until July 25.

Looking at the rain figures, at present, Chhattisgarh is rain deficient by 21%. At the same time, Odisha is running deficient by 26% despite on and off rains continuing over both the states since the beginning of July. Now, however, after this rain spell, the rain deficiency is expected to go down over both the states.
