Odisha is the only state in Central India which is at present running excess by 26%. Although Odisha has been receiving good rain and thundershower activities since the last few days but the main reason for this surplus figure can be attributed to Cyclone Fani.
The reason for these ongoing activities over parts of Odisha can be attributed to a trough which is extending from East Bihar to South Peninsula across Jharkhand and Odisha. The humid winds from Bay of Bengal are increasing moisture over Odisha which is responsible for these weather activities.
We expect these scattered rains and thundershower activities to continue over parts of Odisha for the next 24 hours.
Thereafter, weather will go dry. The trough will move further east over coastal Odisha leading to change in wind direction and northerly and northwesterly dry winds will start blowing over Odisha leading to dry weather conditions.
At present, temperatures are in lower 30s to mid-30s over Coastal Odisha. Now, the temperatures will gradually increase, and weather will become very warm and sultry for the next few days.
We do not expect any significant weather activity post May 18 over Odisha. So dry weather lies ahead.
