Since the past two to three days, Pre-Monsoon activities have picked up pace over the eastern parts of the country. In fact, due to lightning strikes and strong winds, casualties have been reported from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Jharkhand.

Now also, a cyclonic circulation is persisting over Sub Himalayan West Bengal and adjoining area. In wake of this weather system, we expect light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells to occur over East Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha and West Bengal.
