Bhubaneswar: The south-west monsoon has begun to retreat from Odisha, said the India Meteorological Department in a release on Tuesday.
According to the IMD, the monsoon has retreated from some parts of interior districts of Sundargarh, Sambalpur, Keonjhar and Mayurbhanj on Monday. As the conditions are favourable, it is expected that the monsoon will completely retreat from Odisha in the next 48 hours.

“Besides, there will be cloudy weather in the south coastal and north Odisha for three days with sporadic rains between October 16 and 19. This will result in the fall in the night temperature. The weather will change after October 21 with a further dip in the night temperature,” said an IMD release.
