Since, last two to three days rains have decreased over most parts of East India except Odisha. Although eastern parts of the country have not been receiving good rains recently, Odisha continues to see rains for the last some days.
The reason for these rains is the prevalence of a Trough which is still persisting from Odisha up to Andhra Pradesh. Therefore, Odisha has been receiving on and off good rains.
Now, also we do not expect weather to go dry over Odisha. Rains will continue over the state for at least the next three to four days.
Although the rain intensity may decrease after 48 hours, weather will not go dry. Rains will continue with varied intensity as this Trough is expected to persist over Odisha and adjoining areas. However, rain activities will be comparatively less over Gangetic West Bengal and parts of Jharkhand. Although isolated light rains might be seen over Gangetic West Bengal as well as parts of Jharkhand, weather of Bihar and East Uttar Pradesh will remain dry. So, Odisha will be the only state in the eastern part of the country to be receiving these rain activities.
As this Monsoon is onto its withdrawal phase, weather activity associated with thunder and lightning are more common. We expect that lightning strikes along with thundershowers over many parts of Odisha in the coming days. Precaution must be taken against lightning strikes as these are one of the major killers in the eastern states.
