State of West Bengal continues to experience dry and sultry weather. Along with this, state has been highly rain deficient during the month of October. Gangetic West Bengal has been rain deficient by 45% and Sub Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim has been short by 52%.

Minimum temperatures recorded are below normal by 4-5 degree-Celsius and day temperatures are near to normal. Both, early morning and nights are cool and comfortable. However, days are still warm.

As per Skymet Weather, for next 3 days weather will remain dry over the state but a trough is expected to form along the east coast by tomorrow. It will run from North Bay of Bengal to Coastal Tamil Nadu across Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Odisha.

It is expected that by October 28, the trough will become more prominent and it will gradually shift inland. Also, a Cyclonic Circulation is expected to form over Gangetic West Bengal. Due to the prevalence of these systems, we can expect light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells over Gangetic West Bengal on October 29 and 30.

Kolkata is also likely to record some good showers during this time period.

Come October 31, the weather will once again start clearing. However, some parts might experience rain over isolated places. Whereas, rest of West Bengal might witness scattered light rains between October 29 and November 1.

It has been said that this will be the first good rains post the passage of cyclone, Titli.
