Rain in Balasore, Sambalpur, Jharsuguda to continue with reduced intensity

July 17, 2018 4:27 PM |


Heavy to very heavy rains occurred over the state of Odisha during the last 24 hours. In fact, similar weather activity is persisting over the region since past 48 hours.

In a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Monday, Jharsuguda recorded rains to the tune of 108 mm, Sambalpur 58 mm, Chandbali 54 mm, Dhenkanal 36 mm, Cuttack 35 mm, Bhubaneswar 33 mm, Puri 30 mm, Titlagarh 25 mm, Koraput 21 mm, Balasore 14 mm and Angul 13 mm.


The weather scenario could be attributed to a well-marked low pressure area over Interior Odisha which is now likely to move in northwest direction towards Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. In fact, the same system is expected to weaken into a low pressure area.

Thus, we can expect the intensity of showers to reduce over Odisha as the system will move away. However, light to moderate showers may still continue over the northern districts such as Balasore, Jharsuguda and Sambalpur.

Meanwhile, the southern parts of the states such as Koraput, Kalahandi and Raigada would settle with scattered rains of light intensity.

With extremely good showers, the rain surplus of Odisha stands at 305% in the course of 24 hours, while overall Odisha is still rain deficit by 7%.

Furthermore, weatherman foresees another low pressure area to form over Bay of Bengal by July 19. This system is likely to move inland and hence would bring again the saga of heavy to very heavy showers over the state from July 21 till 23.
