IMD's Ranchi Meteorological Centre this afternoon issued a forecast of rain in many places across Jharkhand on Sunday.

"Light to moderate rain is expected to take place at many parts of the state due to the impact of a western disturbance, " said a duty officer at Ranchi Met Centre.

The Met centre also issued an alert of hail in northern and central Jharkhand on  Sunday.

As per inputs of satellite pictures the western disturbance as a trough aloft in mid and upper tropospheric level was seen as a cyclonic circulation over north Pakistan at 3.1 Km above the mean sea level.

Another western disturbance as a cyclonic circulation over north Pakistan at 3.1 Km above mean sea level was prevailing today.

The induced cyclonic circulation over south Pakistan and southwest Rajasthan was on Saturday seen as an induced low-pressure area over central parts of west Rajasthan with an associated cyclonic circulation extending up to 1.5 km above mean sea level.

Met statistics suggested light rain at isolated places over Jharkhand. 

The highest amount of rain 4.2 mm was recorded at Ghatsila (East Singhbhum). 

The highest maximum temperature 25.8°C was recorded at Chaibasa while the lowest minimum temperature of 7.4°C was recorded at Garhwa today.

Meanwhile, several places across the state including Jamshedpur and other parts of Kolhan woke up to heavy fog on Saturday.

The fog resulted in poor visibility and this affected movement of vehicles especially on National Highway 33 connecting Jamshedpur with state capital Ranchi.
