Kolkata: Skies likely to clear up today, forecasts Met – Times of India

Kolkata News
KOLKATA: The city received intermittent rain on a cloudy Monday even as the Met office predicted more showers till early on Tuesday. It could start clearing up from the second half of Tuesday as the clouds recede, said weathermen. A low-pressure area over northwest and adjoining west-central Bay of Bengal had intensified into a deep depression triggering rain along the coastal areas of Bengal and Odisha since Sunday. Kolkata received 15.2 mm rain till 5.30pm on Monday.
“The system has started moving further away from Bengal towards Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. So, the impact of the system will now be marginal. We expect a moderate spell of rain either late on Monday or early on Tuesday.

After that, Kolkata and south Bengal will receive normal monsoon rain which would be light and sporadic,” said Regional Meteorological Centre director GK Das. The system is likely to weaken into a depression over 24 hours.
A bad weather warning had been issued for the coastal areas of South 24 Parganas and East Midnapore on Sunday. Tourists and fishermen were asked to stay away from the sea. Hotels in Digha, too, were asked to warn tourists not to venture near the sea.
