Low pressure trough brings untimely rain in city
Kolkata: A low pressure trough formed over Bay of Bengal may bring light rain in some parts of South Bengal districts on Tuesday. The Regional Metrological Centre at Alipore has predicted that the sky in some parts may remain cloudy. A huge amount of vapour is entering the city's sky as well.
The sky remained overcast since Monday afternoon, while some parts of the city and the adjoining districts witnessed light rain, resulting in a slight drop in the temperature.
According to a weather expert, some portions of the sky may also remain overcast in South Bengal districts on Tuesday. A cool breeze may also sweep through the districts on early Tuesday morning.
The temperature will slightly go down from Monday night, and may rise on Tuesday afternoon. Despite the prediction of light rain in parts of South Bengal districts, people are likely to feel discomfort.
Many of the people who were returning home from their workplaces on Monday evening, got drenched due to sudden rain coupled with breeze. The weather officials are, however, not terming it as Westerly.
As it was an untimely rain, few were carrying umbrellas with them. As a result, commuters were seen taking shelter under the roadside sheds. The rain, however, hardly had any major impact on the people in the city.
According to an official of the met office, the rain has been caused due to the formation of a low pressure trough and it was not an impact of the North-Westerly, which is yet to arrive at the state. The situation may improve slightly after Tuesday evening.
