Jamshedpur, Jan 10: Jamshedpur woke up to overcast conditions on Monday. The city will also experience unseasonal rain for the next few days, predicted IMD’s Ranchi Meteorological Centre. The department has also issued a hail alert.
The impact of the fast moving western disturbance will remain in Jharkhand for another 48-hours, said weathermen today. The western disturbance passing through higher latitude will result in rain and thundershowers at several places during the next 24-hours.
Most places including Jamshedpur woke up to overcast conditions on Monday. Some areas experienced light rains this morning too. ” The impact of the western disturbance would wane after the next 48 hours. Thunder showers with gusty winds are expected at a few isolated places in the next 24-hours,” said a duty officer at the Ranchi Meteorological Centre.
Night readings witnessed a rise in most parts of the state due to cloud cover and moisture incursion into the atmosphere. Rainfall is also likely to take place at many places across the state between Tuesday and Thursday due to the impact of the western disturbance and an associated cyclonic circulation.
The Ranchi Met Centre also issued an alert of thunderstorm and hail in northern and central Jharkhand on Monday and Tuesday. Several places across the state including Jamshedpur and Ranchi confronted early morning fog which reduced surface visibility.
Weathermen at the Regional Meteorological Centre at Alipore in Calcutta said that the local weather system was helping in formation of convective clouds which usually results in rain.
“Partly cloudy weather conditions will continue to prevail over Jharkhand due to the cyclonic circulations. Satellite pictures and chart analysis today indicated the possibility of rain over the state at a few places during the next 48-hours due to the impact of the twin cyclonic circulations,” said a duty officer at the Regional Meteorological Centre.
Today, the sky remained overcast through the morning in Jamshedpur and its neighbouring districts like Seraikela-Kharsawan, West Singhbhum and several hilly areas of the region. The sun was visible only around noon.
