Bhubaneswar: The remnants of Typhoon Kompasu in the South China Sea may reach Bay of Bengal and intensity due to favorable environmental conditions, predicted Skymet Weather Services.
As per the agency, the weakened remnants of Typhoon Kompasu are likely to emerge over Gulf of Martaban and adjoining North Andaman Sea around October 16. Favorable environmental conditions may revive the system into a low pressure area. Withdrawal of monsoon is likely to pave way for its intensification.
Climatology and numerical models indicate growth of the system over the Bay of Bengal, added Skymet.
The system will be named as Cyclone Jawad if it intensifies into a cyclonic storm.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its morning bulletin issued today said a Low Pressure Area is likely to form over East Central Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood during the next 24 hours. It may reach south Odisha-north Andhra Pradesh coasts during subsequent 24 hours.
Under its influence, rainfall intensity is likely to increase in East India and adjoining Central India from 15th October.
“A cyclonic circulation lies over East Central Bay of Bengal & neighbourhood extending up to mid tropospheric levels. Under the influence of this cyclonic circulation, a Low Pressure Area is likely to form over East Central Bay of Bengal & neighbourhood during next 24 hours. It is likely to move west-northwestwards and reach south Odisha-north Andhra Pradesh coasts during subsequent 24 hours. Under its influence, light to moderate rainfall at most places with isolated thunderstorm (wind speed 40-50 kmph) and heavy falls very likely over Andaman & Nicobar Islands during next 5 days. Rainfall intensity very likely to increase over East India and adjoining Central India from 15th October,” the bulletin said.
Meanwhile, Southwest Monsoon has withdrawn from Sundargarh, Jharsuguda, Deogarh, Sambalpur, Bargarh, Bolangir, Sonepur, Nuapada, Boudh, Kalahandi and Nabarangpur districts, most parts of Angul and Kandhamal districts, and some parts of Malkangiri, Koraput, Rayagada, Dhenkanal, Keonjhar and Mayurbhanj districts of Odisha as on October 12.
