Cyclonic circulation over Bay of Bengal; Heavy rainfall likely in coastal Odisha

Bhubaneswar: A cyclonic circulation over north Bay of Bengal is likely to turn into a low pressure within the next 48 hours under the influence of which coastal Odisha would experience heavy rainfall, the Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre predicted today.

The low pressure would also trigger rainfall in south Odisha, it forecasted.

“The upper air cyclonic circulation over north Bay of Bengal & neighbourhood persists and now extends upto 7.6 km above mean sea level tilting southwestwards with height. Under the influence of this system, a low pressure area is likely to form over northwest Bay of Bengal & neighbourhood during next 48 hours,” a bulletin of the Indian Meteorological Department said.
