Post-Monsoon season marks sufficient rains for Odisha and Chhattisgarh as a result of formation of significant weather systems such as low pressure area, depression as well as cyclones over Bay of Bengal. All these systems usually travel in northwest directions thereby affecting Odisha first and then the state of Chhattisgarh.
Moreover, Chhattisgarh receives good rains due to the formation of north -south trough across the state. This year, Cyclone Titli has resulted into heavy to extremely heavy rains over Odisha . Thus, rain deficiency over the state has significantly improved and at present the state is deficient only by 14%.
On the other hand, weather across Chhattisgarh has remained mostly dry with its rain deficiency recorded at 94%.
However, a significant change has been noticed in the weather of Chhattisgarh in the last two days. Good rains have been going on over the state as a result of a north south trough that has been forming from North Chhattisgarh till Karnataka region.
During the last 24 hours, Sambalpur recorded 3.6 mm of rain, followed by Rajnandgaon 1 mm and Jharsuguda 0.5 mm.
In the coming days, we expect this trough to persist thereby continuing scattered rains over Chhattisgarh for next 24 hours.
However, after this episode, weather will once again become dry and the residents will need to wait till December 16 or 17 to experience another spell of rain. It will happen when a significant depression enters Andhra Coast thereby giving good rains over Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Odisha and Chhattisgarh.
