The reason for the rains can be attributed to a Low-Pressure Area which is presently over South Uttar Pradesh and North Madhya Pradesh. The system will soon become less marked and move eastwards over Southeast Uttar Pradesh and adjoining region. Moreover, humid southeasterly winds are sweeping the eastern states from Bay of Bengal. Also, the prevailing Trough line will shift northwards closer to the hills across Indo-Gangetic Plains.
As the region of Bihar falls in close vicinity of foothills of Nepal where multiple rivers mark their presence, localized flood like situation cannot be ruled out. Northern cities like that of Supaul, Bhagalpur, Purnia and Motihari are the most prone to such happenings. Skymet extends caution to the residents in the area against flooding in the next one week.
Monsoon has made a delayed onset over the states of Bihar and Jharkhand this year. The month of June was a rather poor one in terms of rain. While June ended on a deficient note for Bihar at 41%, Jharkhand remained deficient at 55%. Now, however, the rain deficiency figures are set to improve as promising rains lie ahead.
