Monsoon Trough to Bring Heavy Rain to Odisha, IMD Issues Yellow Warning

Bhubaneswar: Odisha is likely to experience heavy rainfall in 15 districts over the next 24 hours due to the prevalent monsoon trough. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) regional centre has issued a Yellow Warning for certain districts in the state for the next five days.

According to the IMD’s mid-day bulletin, a cyclonic circulation over the west-central and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal is currently positioned over south Odisha and its nearby areas. Another cyclonic circulation is expected to form over the same region on July 24, leading to the formation of a Low-Pressure Area within the subsequent 24 hours.

The weather forecast indicates that South Interior Odisha will experience light to moderate rain or thundershowers in most places, while the rest of the districts can expect the same in many places.

In terms of temperature, the highest maximum (day) temperature of 33.8°C was recorded in Paradeep, while the lowest minimum (night) temperature of 23.0°C was observed in Nuapada, Nabrangpur, and Angul in the plains of Odisha.
