Pre-Monsoon rains to continue over Bhagalpur, Jamshedpur, Patna

Bihar rain

The eastern half of Indo-Gangetic Plains have been witnessing rainfall activity for the past few days. In fact, during the last 24 hours also, rainfall activity has been witnessed over both the states. In addition to this, light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells occurred over Bihar and Jharkhand.


In a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Sunday, Bhagalpur recorded 34.7 mm of rain, Farbesganj 25.4 mm, Muzaffarpur 20 mm, Patna 11.9 mm, Purnea 30.1 mm, Chaibasa 5.3 mm, Deogarh 13.3 mm, Ranchi 14.8 mm and Jamshedpur 42.8 mm.

These rains can be attributed to the cyclonic circulation which was over Bihar and adjoining Jharkhand and the trough extending from the northern plains to this circulation.

In addition to this, a cyclonic circulation also persists over East Bihar and adjoining Jharkhand and West Bengal. Therefore, we expect light to moderate rain and thundershowers to continue over many parts of Jharkhand and a few places over Bihar for the next 24 to 48 hours.

Temperatures of Bihar and Jharkhand have already dropped by 2-3 degrees. Further we don’t expect much changes in the day and night temperatures.

Both day and night temperatures over Bihar and Jharkhand are below normal and we expect morning and nights to remain pleasant. Meanwhile, despite drop in temperatures days are expected to remain warm and temperatures will be in mid 30s.
