As per Skymet Weather, a trough is likely to extend from Sub Himalayan West Bengal up to South Coastal Odisha across Gangetic West Bengal. In wake of this weather system, we expect scattered rain and thundershower activities over few parts of the state. These showers would be accompanied by squally winds. Places such as Malda, Burdwan, Baharampur, and Dinajpur are most likely to see these activities.

In fact, the city of joy Kolkata also stands a chance to record light rain and thundershower activity. These weather activities are expected to commence by March 23 and the intensity and spread will be more on the same day. By March 24, the intensity of weather activities is anticipated to reduce over the state. Thereafter, the weather will become dry.

These rains are also likely to bring marginal relief from the warm weather conditions but that would be short-lived.
