September 21, 2019 2:03 PM |

Rain in Odisha

During the last 24 hours, light to moderate rainfall activity was observed over East and Northeast India. While Purnea recorded 23 mm of rains, Siliguri received 7 mm, Cherrapunji 10mm, Kohima 15 m, Langding 11 mm, Gangtok 6 mm and Jalpaiguri received 7 mm rains.

At present a Cyclonic Circulation lies over eastern parts of Assam. The easterlies are prevailing over most parts of East India. An upper air Trough is moving across foothills of Bihar, upper Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. Scattered moderate rainfall was observed over Northeast states, Bihar, and foothills of West Bengal.

Now, the rainfall activity is likely to enhance as the Trough is likely to shift towards North in the lower levels. Thus, moderate rainfall with isolated heavy spells is likely over Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Assam and Meghalaya by tomorrow.

Tomorrow, we expect Assam and Meghalaya to also receive moderate to heavy rainfall. Moderate to isolated heavy rainfall expected over Bihar, North Bengal, northern parts of Jharkhand. Scattered light to moderate rainfall is also likely over southern parts of West Bengal, Jharkhand, and extreme northern parts of Odisha. Light to moderate rain is likely over South Odisha, while central parts of Odisha will see scattered light activities.

Thereafter, the rainfall activities are likely to further increase after 48 hours over East Bihar, North Bengal and Assam.
