Pre Monsoon In Jharkhand

Since past few days, the state of Jharkhand has been performing fairly well on account of different weather systems. Moreover, we are in the phase of pre-Monsoon season when all these thundery and lightning activities are at its peak.

In the past 24 hours, few places of Jharkhand received intense thunder-squalls as well as thundershower activities. Places like Bokaro, Chaibasa, Daltonganj and Jamshedpur recorded 15.2 mm, 25.1 mm, 1.4 mm and 31 mm of rains, respectively.

These activities were due to a Confluence Zone extending from Gangetic West Bengal to Telangana and Interior Karnataka. Also, the humid winds from southeast are blowing from Bay of Bengal were seen merging with hot and dry winds from the Northwest over the area, leading to formation of convective clouds. Hence, resulting in subsequent thundershower and rainfall activities. Lightning strikes were also very frequent in this rain episode.

The thundery activities would be a sight during later part of the day, either in afternoon or evening. This is the favorable time during the Pre-Monsoon season that these activities intensify. When the temperatures rise and there is moisture incursion, Nor’wester or Kal Baisakhi becomes violent.

At present, a feeble Cyclonic Circulation is over northern parts of Chhattisgarh and adjoining areas. Also, a trough is seen extending from this Cyclonic Circulation further eastward across Jharkhand up to West Bengal and Bangladesh. Therefore, widespread activity is ruled out. The activities over these places would be either due to localised weather conditions and terrain.

The eastern half of Jharkhand like Bokaro, Chaibasa, Daltonganj, Ranchi and Jamshedpur would be on the receiving end of these isolated rains.

Especially in the last three days, it has rained pretty good in Jharkhand. On April 18, rains were 47% excess and on April 19, it was 764% excess that is greater than normal for that date and on April 20, it was 700% excess. While, on April 21, the rains were short by 62%. In the coming 24 hours, these rains are expected to reduce and would be isolated in nature.
