Bhubaneswar: With the arrival of Southwest Monsoon in Odisha, the intense summer heat took a back seat paving way for moderate to heavy rains over the region. However, these good showers mainly affected the coastal regions in contrast to interior districts.
The last 24 hours were also not very different for the state, as Monsoon remained active giving good rain and thundershowers over several parts.
Moreover, a cyclonic circulation is seen over northwest and adjoining west-central Bay of Bengal off Odisha.
Therefore, moderate to heavy rainfall will continue to batter numerous places along the coast as well as some interior regions of Odisha during the next 48 hours.
