May 31, 2018 3:06 PM |

Heavy rains, lightning strikes to continue over Odisha

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.


In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday, Malda recorded 17.1 mm of rains, Sambalpur 17 mm, Jharsuguda 13.7 mm, Chaibasa 10.4 mm, Titlagarh 8 mm, Ranchi 5.4 mm, Dhenkanal 4 mm and Bhagalpur 2.4 mm of rains.

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.

In fact, one or two heavy spells are also expected over Jharkhand and adjoining districts of West Bengal.

Places such as Bhagalpur, Purnia, Jamshedpur, Ranchi, Bankura, Puruliya, Midnapore, Keonjgarh, Sambalpur, Varanasi, Gorakhpur, and Allahabad are expected to record pre-Monsoon weather activities along with lightning strikes and strong winds.

However, the intensity of rains would reduce after 24 to 48 hours across East India. Thereafter, on and off thundershower activities may continue during the late evening and afternoon hours over parts of Sub Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim and the foothills of Bihar.

The temperatures will also settle in the mid-30s to higher 30s in most parts of East India. The minimums will be in the lower 20s in parts of Interior Odisha, Jharkhand, and East Bihar. Meanwhile, minimums in East Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, and Coastal Odisha will settle in mid to higher 20s.
