West Bengal, Bihar and Jharkhand to receive rains December 17 onward

December 15, 2018 4:45 PM |


Normally dry weather prevails during winters over the states of West Bengal, Bihar and Jharkhand. It is a very rare phenomena, when any significant system move towards Andhra Pradesh and then it re-curves north-eastwards while hitting East India. This is when the trio states of Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal receive good rains during the winters.

This year as well, dry weather conditions are continuing over Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal. Due to the northerly winds prevailing over the region, night temperatures have dropped. Day temperatures continue to remain marginally below normal at some places. Mist and haziness are prevalent during morning and evening hours.

As we know a Cyclonic Storm is approaching towards the Andhra Pradesh coast. This system is expected to cross the coast by late afternoon of December 17. A trough is also likely to form from northern Bay of Bengal to the Cyclonic storm along the coastal region. Clouding is likely to increase over the states and rain and thundershower activity will occur accompanied by strong gusty winds. We expect mainly light to moderate rain and thundershower activity over Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal during this time. While at the same time, parts of Jharkhand and Gangetic West Bengal will experience strong gusty winds reaching speeds of 40-60 kmph during next 48 hours.

Major cities like Ranchi, Kolkata, Digha, Jamshedpur, Gaya and Hazaribagh may also receive good rains with strong gusty winds during the next 24 hours.
