These rainfall activities occur on different counts Including retreating Monsoon conditions, Western disturbance and weather systems that form in the Bay of Bengal. The monthly mean rainfall for West Bengal in the month of October is 129 mm.

So far, rainfall for West Bengal has been quite deficient and the state has recorded only 16.6 mm against 67 mm until October 11.

One such system was the formation of cyclone Titli which has given record-breaking rainfall over many parts of Odisha as well as some parts of coastal Andhra Pradesh. In fact, some areas of West Bengal have also seen some rainfall activity.
