In the past two days, most areas of Odisha and Chhattisgarh have recorded some good Monsoon rains. In fact, moderate rains have occurred over most of these regions during the last 24 hours.
In a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Wednesday, Jagadalpur recorded 43 mm of heavy rains, Bhubaneswar 36 mm, Cuttack 19 mm, Raipur 19 mm, Durg 15 mm, Angul 9 mm, Sambalpur 7 mm, Koraput 6 mm, Pulbani 6 mm and Pendra 4 mm.
All thanks to a cyclonic circulation which is over Odisha and adjoining Northwest Bay of Bengal. Along with this, a north-south trough continues to persist from South Madhya Pradesh up to North Kerala.
With the combined effect of these weather systems, light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells are likely to continue over Chhattisgarh. Places such as Raipur, Rajnandgaon, Bilaspur and Pendra will witness Monsoon rains.
The state of Odisha will also receive good rains for another 24 hours and areas such as Bhabanipatna, Sambalpur, Jharsuguda and Pulbani in Odisha will witness good rains.
The weather across both the states will remain warm and humid, with comfortable morning and nights. Gusty winds are also expected to affect during thunderstorm activity. Cloudy sky is likely to persist over Chhattisgarh and Odisha. Day maximums are likely to range from 34-37 degrees, while minimums will settle around 25-27 degrees.
If we look at the rain statistics for both, Odisha and Chhattisgarh, the states are facing rain deficiency of 11% and 14%, respectively.
