Temperatures are likely to go up from Saturday afternoon under the impact of a low-pressure formation over the Bay that is likely to intensify and come closer to the land in the next 48 hours.
“A low-pressure area that has developed over south Bay of Bengal is expected to move to the central parts of the sea in the next couple of days. This will boost the flow of moisture to the land and lead to a rise in the Celsius,” said G.C. Debnath, director, India Meteorological Department, Calcutta.
The weather in the city has been comfortable for the past seven days with both the maximum and minimum temperatures varying between one and three degrees below normal.
“The weather has so far been perfect. I don’t remember having ever switched off the fan and pulled a rug as early as the second week of November in Calcutta,” said Gautami Hazra, a student at St. Xavier’s College.
The perfect weather, however, will have to take a break if the weatherman’s prediction comes true.
