Patna: The monsoon may again be active in Bihar over the next three-four days, a senior Met official said on Thursday.

The monsoon got weaker in past one week due to strong flow of Westerly wind and it was expected that the Easterly wind coming from Bay of Bengal will gather strength in next couple days and bring rainfall, Patna MET Director DC Gupta said.

The South-Westerly monsoon caused heavy rains in the Himalayan region like Nepal, Bhutan and North-Eastern states, he said.

Bihar has remained monsoon deficient in June this year as it has received an average 86.7 mm rainfaill as against the expected rainfall at 141.6 mm, Gupta said.

The farmers remained the worst-hit due to inadequate rainfall.
