IANS  |  Bhubaneswar 

The southwest monsoon has withdrawn from Odisha, said the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Sunday.

"The southwest monsoon has withdrawn from the state on Sunday. The state received normal rainfall this year," said Sarat Chandra Sahu, regional director of the Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre.

He said the weather condition would be dry in the next few days and the clear sky would help further drop in night temperature.

Due to regular monsoon this year, the agricultural activities in the state were normal, he added.
