Bhubaneswar: A fresh low pressure area may form over the equatorial Indian ocean and adjoining south Andaman Sea between November 26 and December 2, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.
Several weather models are indicating the formation of the system with intensification into a higher category system over southeast Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood towards the end of the forecasted period of time.
“Most of the numerical models including IMD GFS, GEFS, NCUM, NEPS, ECMWF and ECMWF ensemble are indicating that a fresh LPA would form over equatorial Indian ocean & adjoining south Andaman Sea towards the later part of week 2 (26.11.2021–02.12.2021) and its intensification into a higher category system (depression or above) over southeast BoB & neighbourhood towards the end of week 2,” the IMD predicted.
“Low probability is assigned for cyclogenesis (formation of a depression) over southeast BoB towards the end of week 2,” it added.
On the other hand, the Regional Meteorological Centre here said the minimum temperature (night temperature) is likely to rise by 2-3 degree Celsius during the next 2-3 days over the districts of Odisha.
