Rains to reduce significantly over East India

05:21 PM


Cyclone Daye had resulted in very heavy rains over several parts of Gangetic West Bengal, Odisha along with Jharkhand, East Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. However, the system weakened and even moved towards westwards.

Currently, the system is marked over Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Rajasthan due to which rainfall activity has seen a significant reduction over the eastern parts of the country. Only light rains with isolated moderate showers over some parts of Odisha along with Jharkhand.

During the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Saturday, Ranchi recorded a good 11.2 mm of rainfall, Angul saw 2 mm of rains, Bhubaneswar 7.4 mm of rains, Cuttack 3.2 mm, and Gopalpur 3.3 mm.

Now, an anti-cyclone has developed over Central Bay of Bengal. Therefore, due to the presence of this system, moisture incursion is taking place over Odisha and adjoining parts. Thus, some rains are expected over Odisha, South Jharkhand, adjoining Gangetic West Bengal during the next 24 hours which will take a backseat thereafter.

Meanwhile, eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh along with Bihar will see almost dry weather conditions only in the coming days.
