The tropical storm Daye had given heavy to extremely heavy rains over many parts along the East Coast. Though it had made landfall over Odisha but was responsible for triggering heavy rains over many parts of Gangetic West Bengal.
Contai in West Bengal recorded extremely heavy rainfall activity to the tune of 252 mm during the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday. In fact, many other places in Gangetic West Bengal also recorded moderate to heavy rains such as Digha 77 mm and Midnapore 73 mm. Along with these places, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal also recorded good rains.
Diamond Harbour 66 mm, Malda 34 mm, Jalpaiguri 27 mm, Kolkata 24 mm, Baharampur 13 mm, Bankura 16 mm, Burdwan 12 mm and Krishnanagar 8 mm.
Now, the Cyclone Daye has weekend into a Deep-depression and lies over the interior parts of Odisha and adjoining Chhattisgarh. We expect it to further move westwards and weaken gradually to depression by tonight.
With this, rain intensity will also start reducing over West Bengal. However, as the southeasterly winds are still blowing over the state, therefore, we expect light to moderate rains with isolated heavy spells to continue over Gangetic West Bengal till tonight.
Thereafter, rain intensity will reduce significantly, and only isolated light rainfall activity will continue over this region for the next three to four days. Moreover, this was the last heavy rain spell of this Monsoon season for West Bengal.
