rain in east india

The eastern half of the country has been witnessing weather activities these days. Cloudy skies and occurrences of light rain and thundershowers over part of East India have made the weather of the region comfortable against the warm days that were prevalent a couple of days back.

The last 24 hours were no different for the states like Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Odisha. Within a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Friday, Sambalpur and Rajnandgaon recorded 2 mm of rains each, meanwhile, Mana, Raipur, Titlagarh, Baripada, and Puri recorded 1 mm of rains each. During the similar time frame, Gopalpur and Diamond Harbor witnessed 0.2 mm of rains each and Cuttack witnessed 0.6 mm of showers.

On the other hand, the stations like Durg, Digha, Phulbani, Sundargarh, Paradip, and Jharsuguda all recorded some rainy traces.

As per Skymet Weather, a confluence zone continues to persist over Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand, extending up to the southern parts of West Bengal. An anti-cyclone also prevailed over southwest Bay of Bengal thereby increasing the moisture incursion over these regions.


In the wake of this, North Odisha, North Chhattisgarh, South Jharkhand and Gangetic West Bengal may receive short spell of rain and thundershowers along with strong gusty winds. Thundercloud development may also develop towards afternoon and evening hours.

Short spell of rain and thundershower at some places with hailstorm at few places is likely over Bokaro, Dhanbad, Dumka, Giridih, Godda, Gumla, Hazaribag, Jamtara, Khunti, Pakur, Ramgarh, Ranchi, Sahibganj, Simdega, Bankura, Burdwan, Birbhum, Malda, Murshidabad, Puruliya and West Midnapore during the next 2 to 3 hours.

After 24 hours, a slight improvement in the weather conditions across East India is anticipated as the weather system is likely to become less marked. Due to the absence of rains, the day temperatures of all these regions would once again register a rise while the night temperatures would drop.
