Rainfall & Thunderstorm

Bhubaneswar: There will be rain with lightening in 13 districts of Odisha in next 72 hours, as per the meteorological centre Bhubaneswar. Particularly the Southern part of the State will be more affected in coming 3 days.

“In all probability, the monsoon is expected to hit Odisha within three days. It is likely to enter into parts of Odisha on June 11 or 12,” said H R Biswas, Director of the Meteorological Centre, “monsoon rains are likely to lash southern and eastern parts of the state initially before advancing to other regions.”

As per the bulletin from MeT, this low pressure will bring the monsoon this year. Moreover, a low-pressure area has already formed over east-central Bay of Bengal which is linked to the movement of southwest monsoon in the region.

The low pressure is likely to move west-northwest wards and become more marked during the next 24 hours. Under its impact, light to moderate rainfall is likely to lash most places in Odisha with isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall over Ganjam, Gajapati, Puri, Khurda, Koraput, and Nabarangapur districts on June 10. There will be thunderstorm, lightning and heavy rainfall in several parts of the state till June 12.
