Meanwhile, the IMD in its weather bulletin stated that the rainfall activity in parts of north India has now ceased and there is reduction in moisture content. This indicates that Southwest Monsoon has further withdrawn from most parts of Rajasthan, some more parts of Uttar Pradesh and some parts of northwest Madhya Pradesh. The withdrawal line of the Southwest Monsoon now passes through Bahraich, Gwalior, Sawai Madhopur and Jawai dam. Due to a low pressure area over Bay of Bengal and adjoining Odisha coast, widespread rainfall is likely over Odisha, Jharkhand, West Bengal during next 3-4 days.
