Pre-Monsoon showers likely in Bhubaneswar, parts of Odisha

May 31, 2016 1:18 PM |


While people from all parts of the country have been waiting for Monsoon, it seems that Bhubaneswar has still to wait for Monsoon arrival. The city has been almost dry with less or no rain showers throughout the month. Though due to a cyclonic circulation over West Bengal and adjoining Bihar region, a trough is entering from this system up to South Odisha due to which pre-monsoon activities are expected in the city. Partly cloudy sky with possibility of rain, thunderstorm or dust storm is expected for the next 3 days.

The heaviest rainy spell recorded in Bhubaneswar in the entire month was 32.0 mm on 21st May. Bhubaneswar has so far received 61.7 mm of rainfall which is below its average monthly rainfall of 97.3 mm. The city has been experiencing hotter weather and the temperatures for Bhubaneswar have been high throughout the month of May. It has been settling above the normal recorded average monthly temperature of 37.2 degrees making heatwave like conditions persist for a longer duration.

The maximum temperature recorded during last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Monday was 38.6 degrees which was 2 degrees above the normal while the minimum temperature recorded the same day was 28.4 degrees which was 1 degree above the normal range.

Being the last day of the month, it seems that the city has to wait for June for the weather conditions to improve.

Rain in Odisha

Several other parts of Odisha will witness rain and thundershowers as well during 24 hours due to the trough extending from Bihar upto Karnataka.
