KOLKATA: Even as the city remained cloudy on Wednesday, the Met officials predicted showers in Kolkata on Thursday and Friday under the impact of a low-pressure trough triggered by a western disturbance.
Extending between Bihar and Chhattisgarh, the trough led to rain in north Bengal on Wednesday.
“Chances of rain are high on Thursday due to the low-pressure trough. There could be a few spells of light rain. The showers may continue on Friday even as the cloud cover persists. The skies will start clearing up on Sunday and the mercury will gradually fall,” said RMC director GK Das. He added that the chill will start returning from Sunday night.
