Kolkata: It’s Janmashtami, the Hindu ‘God Of Love’Sri Krishna’s birthday. One such myth says that it generally rains during the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. But on Sunday morning Kolkatans were treated with splash of rain before the birth of the Lord. Kolkata will receive moderate spell of rain.
Rain will continue over Purulia during the next 24 hours. Adjoining parts of West Bengal will also receive rain during the next 24 hours. Less rains are likely over Baharampur and Malda.
A cyclonic circulation has formed over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining Coastal Odisha extending up to 3.6 km. Under its influence a low-pressure area may form over Northwest Bay of Bengal and its adjoining region during the next 24 hours.
As the system has formed rainfall activity is expected to increase significantly over northern parts of Odisha and few parts of Gangetic West Bengal.
