Jamshedpur 4th Oct 2021: Thunderstorms lashed many places, including Jamshedpur, Seraikela, and other parts of Kolhan, yesterday afternoon.
The local IMD center in Jamshedpur recorded 19 mm of rain while adjoining Seraikela received around 22 mm of rain.
Light to moderate rain also occurred in many parts of West Singhbhum, Ghatshila, and Khunti in East Singhbhum.
“A cyclonic circulation over South Uttar Pradesh and adjoining central parts now lies over East Uttar Pradesh and adjoining Bihar extending up to 1.5 km above sea level. Another cyclonic circulation over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining Bangladesh shifted to Sub-Himalayan, West Bengal, and Sikkim today. These two systems resulted in the rain at some places over the south and north-east Jharkhand,” said a senior official of Ranchi Meteorological Centre.
According to him, the cyclonic circulation extending up to 0.9 km above sea level over North Odisha has weakened, otherwise, it would have resulted in more rainfall.
However, meteorologists indicated that the daily readings are expected to increase after the next 24 hours.
“We do not see any strong system which will affect the weather of Jharkhand after the next 24 hours. There will be a gradual increase in the maximum temperature resulting in a heatwave,” said a duty officer in Ranchi.
Although Ranchi and its adjoining areas remained cloudy, it did not rain. Apart from Jamshedpur, strong wind is also reported from Ramgarh, Bokaro, Deoghar, and Giridih.
Both Ranchi and Patna weather stations did not issue any warning for the next four days.
A climate analyst at Patna Meteorological Center said- “The weather is expected to be predominantly dry with the rising day temperatures.”
