Bengal rainfall

Weather Update, June 22: Assam, West Bengal, and other regions are expected to experience heavy to extremely heavy rainfall, posing challenges for the local residents. Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, and Meghalaya are likely to be affected by heavy rains, including isolated areas with extremely heavy falls. Additionally, heavy rains are expected in isolated places across Arunachal Pradesh, Gangetic West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, north Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Coastal Andhra Pradesh.

Furthermore, lightning activity is anticipated in various parts of Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura. These weather conditions call for caution and preparedness among the affected regions.

The Northern Limit of Monsoon (NLM) is currently passing through Ratnagiri (Maharashtra), Raichur (Karnataka), Kavali (Andhra Pradesh), Canning and Sriniketan (West Bengal), and Dumka (Jharkhand). There are favorable conditions for the southwest monsoon to further advance over additional parts of South Peninsular India, Odisha, Gangetic West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar, and East Uttar Pradesh in the next couple of days.

A Low-Pressure Area, which is the remnants of the cyclonic storm ‘Biparjoy,’ persists over central parts of Uttar Pradesh.

Consequently, light to moderate rainfall with isolated heavy showers is expected over north Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Uttar Pradesh on June 22. The trough extending from south Punjab to west Bihar across south Haryana, along with the cyclonic circulation associated with the Low-Pressure Area, will bring rainfall across the region.

In addition, a cyclonic circulation that formed near Odisha on Friday will gradually move westward and inland, gaining strength along the way. This movement may facilitate the southwest monsoon’s advancement into the interior regions of the subcontinent, leading to significant rainfall across the Central Highlands and Deccan Plateau starting from Sunday night.

With these weather patterns in place, it is crucial for residents, authorities, and relevant stakeholders to stay alert and take necessary precautions to mitigate the potential risks associated with heavy rainfall, lightning, and other adverse conditions. Timely preparedness and response measures can help ensure the safety and well-being of the affected communities during this challenging weather period.
