Ranchi: Monsoon has weakened in Jharkhand. Clouds and sunshine are playing hide and seek in the sky.
There has been sunshine in the capital Ranchi since morning.
But the weather remains humid.
However, the Meteorological Department says that light to moderate rain is expected in many parts of the state including the capital Ranchi.
This rain is not good for agriculture but will give relief from the humid heat.
The Meteorological Department has predicted that Ranchi will remain cloudy throughout the day today.
Two or more spells of light to moderate rain may occur.
While the possibilities of heavy rain have been expressed in the north-eastern and south-eastern parts of the state.

But this time only 410.9 mm of rain has been received.
