Heavy downpour expected again in Kolkata today, rains likely on Durga Puja

While Kolkata residents witnessed bright sunny morning today accompanied by humidity, the weather is expected to become slightly pleasant as the day progresses.

The Alipore Weather Office forecasted moderate rains across almost all the districts of south Bengal including Kolkata on Wednesday and Thursday. The depression formation over Bay of Bengal off the north coast of Odisha is likely to bring heavy rains in Purulia and Bankura this week apart from the capital city.

As per the weather office, the wind speed of up to 45 km can move towards the northern part of the sea. Fishermen have, therefore, prohibited from venturing into the deep sea on Wednesday and Thursday. Additionally, if the depression moves further north over the Bay of Bengal near the north coast of Odisha, there is a probability of the landfall of rain during Durga Puja as well.
