The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted thunderstorm accompanied by hail in several parts of Odisha. India's weather forecasting agency has stated that the rainfall activities will be triggered by western disturbance which will also affect Chhattisgarh, West Bengal.

“A trough runs from induced cyclonic circulation over north Haryana to south-east Madhya Pradesh at 0.9 km above sea level. Under its influence, thunderstorm with lightning along with moderate rainfall is likely to lash several parts of Odisha today,” said IMD.

In its weather bulletin, the IMD said light to moderate rainfall activity is likely in Odisha between January 11 and January 14, 2022 due to anticipated western disturbance towards eastern India and strong moisture incursion from Bay of Bengal. Apart from this, thunderstorm accompanied with hail and heavy rainfall is also likely during this period.

Several parts of Odisha including Sundergarh, Bolangir, Sonepur, Bargarh and Sambalpur experienced light rainfall activities in the past 24 hours. The IMD has also issued ‘Yellow Warning’ for thunderstorm and lightning in several parts of Odisha till January 14.
