Rains hover over West Bengal and Odisha for the next 2 to 3 days

Kolkata Rains

Both the eastern states of West Bengal as well as Odisha are receiving good rains for the last few days.

Gangetic West Bengal has been recording moderate rains for the last some days now. Although rain activities over the state capital Kolkata remained mainly light, on a couple of occasions intense thundershowers were witnessed over parts of Kolkata as well.

During the last 24 hours also, many districts of the state have received moderate to heavy rains. While Contai saw 47 mm of rains, Midnapore 26 mm, Bankura 14 mm, Burdwan 20 mm and Berhampore received 12 mm of rain. Also, light rains were recorded over Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri, Siliguri etc.

The reason for these rains can be attributed to a Cyclonic Circulation which is persisting over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining areas. Therefore, we expect moderate rains with one or two heavy spells to continue over Gangetic West Bengal today. By tomorrow, the rain activities will reduce but scattered light to moderate rains are expected to continue until October 11.
Rain activities over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal will remain subdued. Only light rains with one or two moderate spells are expected over here.

Similarly, Odisha has been receiving good rains since the last few days. During the last 24 hours, Sambalpur received heavy rains to the tune of 46 mm, Bhavanipatna 20 mm, Puri 11 mm and Balasore recorded 18 mm rains. Places like Kalingapatnam, Dang, Chandbali, Sundargarh, Bhubaneswar and Angole also managed to receive light rains.

Odisha’s rains can be traced back to a Cyclonic Circulation persisting over South-coastal Odisha and an offshore Trough extending from Gangetic West Bengal to this Cyclonic Circulation.

Therefore, light to moderate rain with one or two heavy spells may occur today as well over many parts of Odisha. These light to moderate rains will continue over many parts of the state until October 11. Thereafter, rains will continue over Southern districts of Odisha whereas rest parts will witness isolated light rains only.
