There will be scattered rainfall in north West Bengal for the next five days instead of heavy showers as announced earlier, the Met Department said on Monday.

“The five districts of Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri, Alipurduar, Kalimpong and Cooch Behar of north Bengal will receive scattered rainfall in the next four-five days and not heavy rain as said earlier,” a Met Department official said.
