BHUBANESWAR: Several parts of Bhubaneswar on Sunday experienced rainfall accompanied by thunderstorm due to low-pressure area over northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining Odisha coast, said the India Meteorological Department (IMD).
Vehicular traffic at roads came to a grinding halt owing to waterlogging at several places in the district.
The weather department has predicted light rainfall in Bhubaneswar for the next 5 days.
“A low pressure area lies over northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining Odisha coast and a cyclonic circulation in lower tropospheric levels lies over central Assam and neighbourhood. Under its influence – fairly widespread to widespread rainfall very likely over Odisha during next 3-4 days,” the IMD said.
The maximum temperature in Odisha on Saturday was recorded at 30 degree Celsius, while the minimum temperature was 24.6 degree Celsius.
