Rain in Kolkata

As predicted by Skymet Weather, fairly widespread rain and thundershowers have occurred over North Odisha and southern parts of Gangetic West Bengal, wherein the capital city Kolkata has recorded light to moderate rain and thundershowers during the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday.

Figure-wise, Keonjhagarh in Odisha has recorded 22 mm of rainfall, followed by Pulbani 15 mm and Jharsuguda 13.8. In West Bengal, the cities of Kolkata and Midnapore have recorded 19 mm of rainfall, followed by Diamond Harbour 16.6 mm, Burdwan 12.4 mm and Bankura 11.8 mm.

Have a look at the latest radar image for live lightning and thunderstorm status across the states of Odisha and West Bengal:

According to meteorologists, these rains were a result of multiple systems that had developed across India. At present, a Cyclonic Circulation is over West Madhya Pradesh, while a Cyclonic Circulation is present over Northeast Madhya Pradesh. A Trough from these two systems is extending up to North Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal across Jharkhand. And moist winds from the Bay of Bengal are creating a Confluence zone over the region.

In the wake of all these systems, we expect fairly widespread rain and thundershower with isolated heavy spells at one or two places in the next 48 hours over Odisha and southern parts of Gangetic West Bengal. There is a possibility of lightning strikes and hailstorm as well, at one or two places. Slowly, these activities will spread up to the northern parts of Gangetic West Bengal. The capital city of Kolkata is expected to receive light to moderate rain and thundershowers for next two days.

Several other places in West Bengal like Keonjhagarh, Pulbani, Jharsuguda, Midnapore, Diamond Harbour, Burdwan and Bankura will also witness rains.
