Jamshedpur records 10 mm rainfall, foggy weather for next 24 hours


Jamshedpur, Jan 11: The city recorded 10 mm rainfall as Celsius slid in most parts of the state today, increasing the chill, thanks to the revival of  free flow of north wind. Weathermen today said that the crisp north wind will make a comeback and will result in plummeting night readings in the next few days. The minimum temperatures will plummet in most parts of Jharkhand in the next 48-hours or so,” said a senior weather official at IMD’s Patna Meteorological Centre. He, however, ruled out the possibility of a cold wave condition, when minimum readings go five notches below normal.

Weathermen at the Ranchi Meteorological Centre said that winter is at its peak and that the climate across Jharkhand will remain foggy for the next 24-hours.  Dry weather is most likely to prevail in Jharkhand after three days. This will result in a further drop in minimum readings,” said a senior official at the Ranchi Meteorological Centre.

The Ranchi Met Centre also extended the dense fog alert at several places including Daltongang and its adjoining districts, were early morning surface visibility was reduced to 100 metres today.

Weathermen expressed apprehensions of light rain and thunder showers in a few isolated pockets of the state tomorrow due to formation of a low pressure and an associated upper air cyclonic circulation which is gaining strength on the Bay of Bengal near the Andamans.

An official of IMD’s Ranchi Meteorological Centre said that apart from showers, several pockets of the district will witness lightning and thunder for the next 24 hours.
