Since last many days, several parts of West Bengal have been receiving a good amount of rainfall activities. Whereas Kolkata has only managed to witness light rains. Also, many parts of Gangetic West Bengal have recorded fairly widespread moderate showers. In contrary to this, the northern districts of West Bengal have not been receiving good rains for quite a long time now.

So, in a span of last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday, Bankura 23.1 mm, Asansol 18.2 mm, Krishnanagar 17 mm, Sriniketan 16 mm, Digha 12 mm, Diamond Harbour 8 mm, Midnapore 6 mm, Baharampur 4 mm, Burdwan and Kolkata 1.2 mm.

As per the weathermen at Skymet Weather, a cyclonic circulation is seen over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining areas of Jharkhand. Also, this weather system is likely to move gradually towards West. Therefore, due to this movement, the intensity of these light to moderate rains in many parts of West Bengal and adjoining areas is expected to reduce marginally.

In the meantime, cities such as Kolkata, Malda, Asansol, Diamond Harbour, Digha, and Burdwan will witness scattered light rains during the next 24 to 48 hours. In fact, the northern parts of West Bengal are likely to remain mainly dry.


However, light rains with one or two spells of moderate showers will continue to occur over Gangetic West Bengal and central districts of the state during the similar time period. Meanwhile, scattered light rains are also possible over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal region.
