The South-West monsoon has finally withdrawn from Odisha, informed the Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre on Friday.

Taking to Twitter, the weather department said, “The monsoon has completely withdrawn from Odisha.”

The monsoon is also likely to withdraw from the remaining parts of Chhattisgarh, Odisha and North Bay of Bengal and some parts of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Yanam and the central Bay of Bengal during the next two days.

As per IMD, monsoon is likely to withdraw from parts of Maharashtra, including Pune by October 23. The low-pressure area in the Bay of Bengal is likely to intensify further into a cyclonic storm and may continue the rainfall and may not affect the withdrawal of monsoon from Maharashtra, weather department officials said.

Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal are expected to receive heavy rainfall until October 25. "Scattered to fairly/widespread rainfall with isolated heavy to very heavy falls & thunderstorm/lightning very likely over Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal on 24th & 25th October, 2022," the MeT Department stated.
