Scattered rains ahead for Bihar, Jharkhand around October 29

October 25, 2018 5:10 PM |


Dry weather conditions are prevalent over Bihar and Jharkhand since last many days. Moreover, both the states are largely rain deficient at present. If we look at the figures, Jharkhand is deficient by 69% and Bihar’s rain deficiency stands at -72%.

The two states were ‘rain deficient’ during the Southwest Monsoon as well. Scanty rains which occurred during the Post-Monsoon season in the month of October will not help the upcoming Rabi crops as the soil moisture is further on a decreasing trend.

However, there is a silver lining to the cloud as we expect scattered rains to commence over Bihar and Jharkhand on around October 29. These rains will continue till November 1 over Jharkhand. Rains over Bihar however, will be short-lived and will persist on October 29 and 30.

The intensity of these rains will remain less and thus these rains will not be of much help in soil moisture restoration. The reason for these rains can be attributed to the formation of a Cyclonic Circulation over Gangetic West Bengal and the trough from this system extending up to Tamil Nadu across Odisha and Andhra Pradesh.

Thus, very good rains are not ahead for Bihar and Jharkhand but some relief from the ongoing weather is sure in sight.
